Approvals and Ratings

Architectural EnviroCoatings

 

 

The Paint and Coatings Industry has developed quality and performance standards for manufacturers and their products. 

 

The standards provide the consumer with quantifiable information as to what a product is and how it should perform. 

 

 

EnviroCoatings participates with a number of product quality and performance rating bodies and organizations associated with the Paint and Coatings Industry.

   

EnviroCoatings products are Lab-Tested and Real World Certified

The Master Painters Institute

The Master Painters Institute since 1967

MPI is an Institute dedicated to the establishment of quality standards and quality assurance in the painting and coating application industries in the U.S.A. and Canada.

 

 

Approved Products List

 

The Master Painters Institute have been qualifying products for the Approved Products List since 1967. 

 

The Approved Products List is not unlike any "QPL" (Qualified Products List).  In fact, a number of cities and other agencies are using the MPI Approved Products List as their "QPL," as do hundreds of architects, specification writers, building owners, property managers, condo councils, and government agencies.

 

An example of acceptance by government is the recent adoption of MPI standards by the U.S. Navy

 

Professional Organizations Reference MPI

 

The MPI Architectural Painting Specification and Maintenance Repainting standards are presently referenced by the Dept. of Defense Unified Facilities Guide Specification, the AIA’s MasterSpec, SpecLink, GSA, the Canadian Government’s National Master Specification, and many others.

Cool Roof Rating Council

Cool Roof Rating Council

 

 

The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) is an independent, non-profit organization that maintains a third-party rating system for radiative properties of roof surfacing materials.

 

 

History

The CRRC was created in 1998 to develop accurate and credible methods for evaluating and labeling the solar reflectance and thermal emittance (radiative properties) of roofing products and to disseminate the information to all interested parties.

 

Product Rating Program

The core of the CRRC is it's product rating program allowing roofing manufacturers to label various radiative roofing related products with accurate property values rated under a strict program administered by the CRRC.  Code bodies, architects, building owners and product specifiers can rely on the rating information provided in the CRRC Rated Products Directory.  The CRRC product ID for Ceramic Insulcoat Roof is 0896-0001.

 

Cool Roof Rating Council and California Title 24

The CRRC became the supervisory entity responsible for administering California's certification program for roofing products beginning January 1, 2003.  It is the sole entity the California Energy Commission recognizes for certifying the solar reflectance and thermal emittance values of roofing products.

EPA Energy Star

US Department of Energy EPA Energy Star

 

 

Energy Star® is a joint program of

the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

and the U.S. Department of Energy.

 

 

 

Why Energy Star®?

Energy Star® is the trusted government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.  Energy Star® label was established to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by inefficient use of energy
  • Make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy efficient products that offer savings off energy bills without sacrificing performance, features and comfort

 

How does EPA choose which products earn the label?

Products can earn the Energy Star® label by meeting energy efficieny requirements set forth in Energy Star®'s product specifications.  The Energy Star®'s roof product category measures initial reflectivity and three years of aged reflectivity data.  It also includes initial emissivity date.

 

Energy Star® label and California Title 24

The California Energy Commission uses the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) as its sole supervisory entity for Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards compliance.  The CRRC Product Rating Program requirements exceed those required by the EPA Energy Star® Qualified Roof Product Program.

 

Why did EnviroCoatings obtain an Energy Star® label?

Because many Federal and other State Government specifications require Energy Star® compliance.

 

Ceramic Insulcoat Roof is an Energy Star® Partner and is found in the Energy Star® Qualified Roof Products List.  For additional information visit: The EPA Energy Star® Roof Products Website


California Energy Commission - Title 24

EnviroCoatings Ceramic InsulCoat Roof is California Title 24 Compliant

 

 

Title 24 is recognized as the accepted benchmark for "Cool Roof" standards in the United States 

 

 

 

History

The California State Legislature created the California Energy Commission as its primary energy policy and planning agency in 1974.  One of the Energy Commission's basic responsibilities is to, "Promote energy efficiency and conservation by setting the state's appliance and building efficiency standards."

 

The Energy Commission adopted its first Building Energy Efficiency Standards for new Residential and new Non-Residential buildings in 1977 and those came into effect in 1978.  The standards have been expanded and updated periodically ever since.

 

Cool Roofs, California Energy Code - October 2005

Because cool roofs save both money and energy, in October 2005 they became part of the prescriptive requirements of California's energy code, the Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.

 

California Title 24 and the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC)

The CRRC became the supervisory entity responsible for administering California's certification program for roofing products beginning January 1, 2003.  It is the sole entity the California Energy Commission recognizes for certifying the solar reflectance and thermal emittance values of roofing products.

 

2008 and 2013 - Title 24 Standards

The most recent Building Energy Efficiency Standards were implemented in 2008.  The next revision, 2013, has been approved and will become effective January 1, 2014.

 

Ceramic InsulCoat Roof satisfies the 2013 Title 24 "Cool Roof" requirements.

The United States Green Building Council

 

 

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is making cost-efficient, energy-saving green buildings a reality across the country.

 

 

 

 

History

The USGBC was established in 1993 with a mission to promote sustainability in the building and construction industry.

 

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings.  It provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions.

 

Since its unveiling in March 2000, the LEED green building certification system has singled out commercial, institutional and residential projects noteworthy for their stellar environmental and health performance in both the United States and abroad.
