Tiger Foam Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation can contribute credits to the Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design (LEED) green building rating system. Although individual products cannot be “LEED certified”, they may contribute to points under the rating system, which is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council.
For the Indoor Environmental Quality LEED credit (EQ Credit 4), Tiger Foam contains no CFC’s or HCFC’s , and does not emit VOC’s. The HFC blowing agent, besides being completely non-ozone depleting and non-VOC, is non-flammable and a portion remains in the foam to contribute to the excellent thermal insulating characteristics (EA Prerequisite 2 and EA Credit 1 for optimizing energy performance).
In addition, use of Tiger Foam Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation may contribute to various other LEED credits, including EQ Credit 7 for thermal comfort, ID Credit 1 for innovation in design, MR Credit 5 for local/regional materials (Tiger Foam is manufactured in Norton and/or Akron, Ohio) and MR Credit 2 for construction waste management, as Tiger Foam can expand and seal any shape without trimming, thus reducing potential trimming debris disposal.
