February 23, 2015 – Gaco Western showcased their innovative, time-saving GacoProFill SYSTEM at the recent NAHB International Builders Show in Las Vegas and at the Spray Polyurethane Foam Association (SPFA) Convention and Trade Show in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Contractors are giving the GacoProFill SYSTEM high marks for eliminating waste, reducing labor and increasing yield. Because there is no trimming needed and virtually no waste, the GacoProFill SYSTEM provides higher yields than most open cell foams and scrap disposal expenses are greatly reduced or eliminated.
Builders appreciate that the GacoProFill SYSTEM offers a consistent cavity fill to help ensure quality installation on every project, quick installation to speed up the construction cycle, and high bio-renewable content for sustainability which is important to many architects and home buyers.
GacoProFill Open Cell Foam is also the FIRST Open Cell Foam in the United States to be awarded UL Environment’s GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold Certifications, signifying that samples of GacoProFill have been tested and certified to be in compliance with stringent chemical emissions standards set by UL Environment, which are amongst the world’s most rigorous, third-party chemical emissions standards.
“Gaco Western is committed to developing innovative and environmentally-responsible products that give our contractors a competitive edge. The GacoProFill SYSTEM eliminates trimming and waste which is unheard of with open cell spray foam systems. The GREENGUARD Certifications open up new markets by differentiating GacoProFill as a more responsible choice in open cell spray foam applications,” stated Tom Sojak, Vice President, GacoWallFoam.
GREENGUARD Certification is issued by UL Environment, a business unit division of UL (Underwriters Laboratories). GREENGUARD Certification helps manufacturers create – and helps buyers identify – interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions. GREENGUARD Certification became part of the UL Environment portfolio in 2011 when UL Environment acquired the Greenguard Environmental Institute, further advancing its mission of promoting global sustainability, environmental health, and safety.
