TCNA Releases Industry-Wide Material Ingredient Guide

Posted on 12 July 2021 by cradmin4

Tile Council of North America (TCNA) announced publication of its Material Ingredient Guide at Coverings 2021. This Material Ingredient Guide is the first of its kind and provides information about the material ingredients used industry-wide by North American tile, mortar and grout manufacturers. It provides in-depth health assessments of materials used and is a resource for manufacturers to use when providing the content and chemical makeup of their products or “material ingredient transparency”.

In developing this guide, 17 manufacturers collaborated to obtain GreenScreen Benchmark Scores for the vast majority of material ingredients used by ceramic tile, mortar and grout manufacturers.

“Product ingredient disclosure is in high demand,” stated Dan Marvin, Sr. Vice President of Operations for Ironrock and Chairman of TCNA’s Green Initiative Committee. “Through development of the Material Ingredient Guide, the tile industry is committed to thoroughness, consistency and transparency in reporting information about the materials from which our products are made.”

With a consistent, thorough, and transparent approach to material ingredient reporting and the compilation of referenceable GreenScreen Assessment® Benchmark scores on industry-wide materials, TCNA members aim to have the largest number of fully assessed material ingredient reports in the market. These fully assessed reports will make ceramic tile, mortar and grout products eligible for contribution to LEED, WELL and Living Building Challenge “optimization” credits. TCNA’s Material Ingredient Guide initiative amplifies the North American ceramic tile industry’s dedication to health and environmental sustainability .

Wes Sullens, Director of LEED for the U.S. Green Building Council commented, “The result of this collaboration within the tile industry will push the market forward and spark even greater innovation and consideration for healthier indoor environments. This work provides the marketplace with key information needed by those pursuing LEED green building certification as they select products.”
