Evaluation programs

Declare

Declare labels are issued to products disclosing ingredient inventory, sourcing and end of life options. Declare labels are based on the Manufacturers Guide to Declare, administered by the International Living Future Institute.

How it works

Material ingredients are inventoried and screened against the Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List which represents the ‘worst in class’ materials, chemicals, and elements known to pose serious risks to human health and the greater ecosystem.

The Health Product Declaration®

The HPD Open Standard provides a consistent, and transparent format to accurately disclose the material contents and associated hazard classifications for a building product.

How it works

Material ingredients are screened and categorized according to the hazards that international governmental bodies and toxicology experts have associated with them, based on two listings:

  • Authoritative lists maintained or recognized by government bodies
  • Screening lists, which include chemicals that government bodies determined need further scrutiny, as well as chemical lists not recognized by any government body.


What's in this product and why

Declare level

Isolatek International takes pride in the fact that all of its Applied Fireproofing products are labeled as Declare™ Red List Free. The Declare program holds manufacturers accountable for their ingredients used in their products and allows the specifiers, architects and others the ability to better understand the products' environmental and sustainable qualities through transparency.

What's in the product and why

The ingredients used to manufacture Isolatek International's CAFCO 300 Series products provide effective, thermally efficient, robust and resilient Applied Fireproofing products.

The in-place products have superior thermal efficiencies, resulting in lower thicknesses to meet specified design criteria providing efficiencies in material and labor.

Our products' primary components are gypsum, which is a naturally occurring element or Portland cement binder, which is obtained and processed from common natural materials, such as limestone and clay. The trade off with the cement -based products compared to the naturally occurring gypsum counterparts is their functional ability to better withstand the exterior elements or other abuses during the construction and life cycle of the structures in which they are installed. Both primary component binder types have widespread availability which are sourced locally near our various production facilities.

What's been done in the design and manufacture in consideration of the potential human health impacts in the use stage

Isolatek International's CAFCO 300 Series products contain recycled cellulose which constitutes up to 10% recycled content of the material by weight. CAFCO 300 Series products are packaged in recyclable kraft paper bags and shipped on wood pallets that can be reused or recycled.

CAFCO 300 Series products are designed to provide required fire resistance ratings on structural steel members and designed to last the lifetime of a building when applied in accordance with the specified design criteria, Isolatek's written Application Instructions, properly maintained after application and not damaged or altered in any way after installation.

Where it goes at the end of its life

Isolatek International's Applied Fireproofing products are designed to provide the required fire resistance ratings on the structural steel members to last the lifetime of the building when applied in accordance with the specified design criteria, our written Application Instructions and are not damaged or altered in any way after their installation.

Although Isolatek's Applied Fireproofing products are designed to last the lifetime of the building, the end life of the product is generally the result of a rehabilitation, which may require removal and replacement of the Applied Fireproofing materials. The removal depends upon the degree of the rehabilitation. Otherwise, the end life of the material is based on the end life of the structure in its entirety. The material is then processed along with the remainder of the structure, primarily as landfill material.

How we're making it healthier

  • Isolatek International is committed to legal compliance and ethical business practices in all of our operations. 
  • Isolatek's vendors must act in accordance with the applicable statutory and international standards regarding environmental protection.
  • Isolatek's vendors must minimize environmental pollution and make continuous improvements in environmental protection.
  • Isolatek's vendors must set up or use a reasonable environmental management system.
  • In Isolatek's purchase arrangements, vendors must observe all applicable laws of their country and international standards, including but not limited to laws and standards relating to the environment, as well as health and safety.
