Royal Adhesives and Sealants LLC announced that it has launched a new line of Gunther brand mirror mastic, Premier Plus. Developed specifically for the professional mirror installation market, this mirror mastic contains less than 10 grams per liter of VOCs compared to over 500 grams per liter of VOCs in traditional solvent based mirror mastics.
With this ultra LVOC content, Premier Plus is the first mirror mastic for LEED compliant construction projects. The new mirror mastic will be on display at Glass Build America, September 30-October 2, 2009, in Atlanta, Georgia, in booth 1712.
Established through the U.S. Green Building Council, the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program establishes strict guidelines for energy and environmental design. As part of the environmental focus, the VOC content for mastics and construction adhesives cannot exceed 70 grams per liter. The new Premier Plus is far under this threshold with a VOC level of less than 10 grams per liter.
Steve Zens, Vice President Sales & Marketing, commented: “This new line of Gunther brand mirror mastics represents Royal’s commitment to the growing demand for ‘green adhesives and sealants’ in the architectural market. LVOC technologies will be key in meeting future building requirements.”
Royal’s experienced research and development department works closely with the professional glass and mirror industry to develop new products that meet their needs for green strength, application times and physical properties. In addition, these formulations must be compatible with the manufacturer’s various mirror backings commonly used in this process.
Jim Gagen, National Sales Manager, also commented: “With this new LVOC technology we have been able to address the strict guidelines of LEED Certified projects. This new product remains easy to apply yet maintains the same product performance that the market expects from a Gunther brand mirror mastic.”
