Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound Receives UL Recognition For Fire Safety In North America

Published on 2010-01-21. Author : SpecialChem

Granville, NY -- The Green Glue Company announced that Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has been recognized by Underwriters Laboratories, and will henceforth bear the UL's mark for the United States, and ULC listing in Canada. The recognition follows extensive safety testing of the compound for surface burning characteristics in accordance with UL standards for building materials.

Underwriters Laboratories evaluated the surface burning characteristics of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound when applied to inorganic reinforced cement board, analyzing both flame spread and smoke development characteristics. The results of testing concluded that the material complies with UL standards for surface burning characteristics for building materials (UL723), and is eligible to bear the UL's Mark. In a separate evaluation, the material was found eligible for Listing and Follow-up Service with the Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (CAN/ULC-S102). Testing and evaluation took place earlier this year.

"The UL-Mark recognizes that Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has been thoroughly evaluated for safety by one of the world's most respected independent testing organizations. We are extremely pleased to receive UL recognition and consider it an important milestone for this innovative new product," said Brian Ravnaas, Technical Innovation Manager, The Green Glue Company.

Submitting products and materials to Underwriters Laboratories is entirely voluntary, however numerous municipal codes and regulations require testing by a nationally recognized testing laboratory before products can be sold in their area. Underwriters Laboratories is the largest and oldest nationally recognized testing laboratory in the United States. It has been testing products since its founding in 1894.

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic compound that can quickly and easily be applied between two sheets of drywall, plywood or any commonly used building materials. It effectively eliminates up to 90 percent of noise transfer from one room to another and is a widely-used material for residential and commercial building and remodeling applications.
