Highlighting construction flooring adhesives that will help you earn LEED v4/v4.1 low emitting materials credits.

Bellow you’ll find a variety of flooring adhesives from multiple manufacturers that you can use to get your LEED low emitting credit.

While we normally suggest that project teams ignore adhesives and sealants when tracking IEQc2 Low Emitting Materials credit, we know some teams will still go for it. We suggest that you punt completely on Adhesives and Sealants, for 3 reasons.

First, it’s the category that has the most products. You’re dealing with at least 20 all from different subcontractors. Second, from our experience, it has the least number of compliant products in the market place. Manufacturers just are not getting all of these products tested against the CDPH standard. Third, you’re going through dozens of submittals to get them all. The categories we suggest targeting can all be completed (in most cases) from individual submittals, and can likely be knocked out by 3 different subcontractors. For more advice on how to earn IEQc3 Low Emitting Materials for LEED, check out Green Badger’s Ultimate Guide to LEED v4 and v4.1 Construction.

But for those of you still brave enough to track adhesives and sealants, here are some plumbing adhesive and sealant products to get you started. All of the products listed bellow (and many more not listed) are searchable within Green Badger’s product database.

Using a LEED submittal cover sheet:

There are some pretty easy best practices that can really facilitate the documentation for materials and even low-emitting products.

Here’s one that you think would be commonplace, but at least in this Badger’s neck of the woods (literally), we don’t see all that frequent – using a required LEED Submittal Cover Sheet for all subcontractors. By having a coversheet, where you require the subcontractor to provide cost and any relevant LEED data (recycled content percentages, distance from extraction and manufacture, VOC content, etc), you get all this information upfront. Or reject the submittal and send it back. Pretty straightforward! Download your free LEED v4.1 product submittal coversheet bellow.
