VT Industries Offers Eco-Friendly Countertop Materials
EQcountertops by VT Industries are GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified and are also the first and only GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM Certified laminate countertops available, meeting the most stringent emission standards.
EQcountertops assist in achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. For both commercial and residential projects, you can keep the earth green by choosing the environmentally friendly features of EQcountertops.
EQcountertops cores are made of FSC certified, 100 percent pre-consumer recycled particleboard, with no added urea formaldehyde, including SkyBlend cores. SkyBlend cores are tinted blue for easy identification in the field. The company states that by using its sustainable particleboard, you lose nothing in durability.
The laminate surface of EQcountertops not only provides a durable, high-quality countertop surface, it’s GREENGUARD Certified as well, which means significantly diminished harmful emissions.
EQcountertops use water-based adhesives to bond the laminate to the particleboard. These adhesives eliminate unsafe Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which helps improve indoor air quality.
