STYROFOAM™ ™awarded Cradle to Cradle certification by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC).

Hunt Valley, MD, February 19, 2010 – Five insulation products from Dow Building Solutions, including a few STYROFOAM™ ™products based on different materials, have achieved Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certification.

The C2C certification program, administered by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), assesses products and companies based on their material use, material reutilization (recycling, composting, etc.), use of renewable energy or energy efficiency, water use and quality, and social responsibility. Products are certified at one of four levels: basic, silver, gold or platinum.

Headquartered in Hunt Valley, Maryland, Universal Foam Products is one of the leading providers of STYROFOAM™ ™Brand Foam, Geofoam, extruded polystyrene, and other types of foam-based products for a variety of applications. The company’s EPS products can be custom-engineered to meet the exact specifications of any given project.

Dow’s STYROFOAM™ extruded polystyrene foam insulation and Safetouch fiberglass-free insulation both earned silver certification. Basic certification was given to STYROFOAM™ SIS structural insulated sheathing, STYROFOAM™ spray polyurethane foam insulation (CM series) and Thermax exterior insulation.
