Adhesives

All RockWood products are made with zero-VOC or extremely low-VOC adhesives and are CARB Phase II compliant, adhering to the most stringent formaldehyde emissions standard (<0.05ppm) and therefore qualify for the LEED Low-Emitting Materials credit.

Finishes

UV-Cured Natural Oil -Made primarily with renewable natural ingredients such as sunflower oil, soy oil, and carnauba wax, these finishes contain little or no petroleum-based ingredients. Like UV-cured urethanes, UV-cured natural oils will not off-gas in the home. UV-cured oils are maintained with the same zero-VOC cleaning and maintenance products as Oxidative Natural Oils. While some of the products used for periodic maintenance may have mild odors, the Woca maintenance products recommended by RockWood Plank are VOC-free.

Carb Phase II Compliance

The label seen on panels and finished goods indicates that the product meets the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) stringent emission standards for formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products.

Forests

All of RockWood’s raw material comes from verified legal, selectively harvested forestry operations. We source wood only from European forests, where forestry laws are strict and well enforced. RockWood does not buy Russian Oak, where illegal and otherwise irresponsible harvesting is currently commonplace. Illegal logging is a huge problem in the Russian Far East, where harvesting of Oak and other species in protected areas is reducing the last remaining habitat of the endangered Siberian Tiger. Most of that Oak is being processed in Chinese factories and sold in the United States, where it is often labeled as ‘European Oak.’

LEED® Certification

LEED® is a green building certification system that recognizes buildings that are constructed to a certain set of green standards. If you are working on

a LEED® project and have questions about how RockWood flooring can help you achieve LEED® credits.
