The Carpet and Rug Institute, through its Green Label Plus program, has certified more than 20 MAPEI adhesives. According to the company, products across five categories received certification, including three types of carpet adhesives as well as seam and cove-base adhesives.

"MAPEI continues to pursue the development of innovative adhesives that meet the demands of the construction industry," said Michelle Swiniarski, product manager for MAPEI's Floor Covering Installation Systems. "By supplying adhesives that excel in meeting indoor air quality requirements, we can help achieve one of our biggest goals - keeping our environment green."

The CRI Green Label Plus program recognizes products that meet stringest low chemical emissions and establishes the highest standard yet for indoor air quality, MAPEI noted. Products are tested by an independent, certified laboratory to determine if they meet certification requirements.
