IPS Products Receive UL GREENGUARD GOLD Certification

Gardena, California – October 22, 2021 – Christy’s is proud to announce that our Weld-On and Christy’s solvent cements, primers and cleaning products have received UL GREENGUARD GOLD Certification. Products that have achieved GREENGUARD GOLD Certification have been tested and certified to meet some of the world’s most rigorous, third- party chemical emissions to create improved indoor environments.

As a worldwide leader in providing the best pipe joining solutions to our customers, Christy’s is committed to developing the highest-quality products while remaining on the leading edge of environmental responsibility.

GREENGUARD Certification has been widely adopted as a trusted standard for low-emitting products. In fact, more than 400 green building codes, standards, guidelines, procurements policies, and rating systems recognize or reference GREENGUARD certified products.

Our products have been certified for both available tiers: GREENGUARD Certification and GREENGUARD Gold Certification.

GREENGUARD Certification criteria have been the basis for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credit since 2002. The GREENGUARD Gold Certification Standard includes health-based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and health care facilities.
