Armourcoat® achieves third-party certified Environmental Product Declaration

  • 8 Sep 2021

Armourcoat Ltd announces the publication of its new set of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). This provides Architects and Specifiers with transparent, verified and comparable information about the environmental impact of their products.

Armourcoat recognise architects and specifiers are under huge pressure to ‘specify green’ and its biggest challenge is to compare the impacts of different materials and products in order to select the most sustainable options.

By gaining EPD classification, Armourcoat can transparently communicate accurate environmental information about its products across their entire life cycle, smoothing the decision-making process for the architect.

The comprehensive report also enables architects and designers to prove the sustainability of buildings from the early planning phase and in many cases also add value to the building. A verified EPD can earn a project relevant credits when targeting certification such as LEED, BREEAM or other similar green building rating systems.

‘Sustainability is a fundamental part of Armourcoat’s philosophy’

Duncan MacKellar, founder and Creative Director – Armourcoat, comments: “As a global company we recognise the wider impact our products have on the planet.

“The publication of our new set of EPDs is testament to our ongoing commitment to provide natural, high performance, long lasting, aesthetic products for the betterment of buildings and those who live, eat, play and work in them.

“As a long established manufacturer of natural mineral, water-based decorative coatings using recycled materials, sustainability is a fundamental part of Armourcoat’s philosophy. We are thrilled to achieve an Environmental Product Declaration for our new natural clay and lime plaster, Clime, Armourcoat Acoustic and all our polished plaster products.”

With an outstanding and ever-growing product range Armourcoat remains at the forefront of sustainable decorative surface solutions.
