Ametco powder coating process is solvent free. The powder is formulated using finley ground pigments and resins with zero solvents resulting in a clean air finish and next to zero VOCs. The electrostatic powder to substrate process equates to very little overspray, of which 98% can be retrieved and reused. This would qualify for LEED points only if it is used indoors. Ametco is continuing to work on improving their product line. These changes may increase the LEED points your project can earn.

Trex is a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), which is the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from every sector of the building industry. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), developed in part by USGBC, is a third party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED is a point-based system and grades projects that are able to satisfy specific green building criteria. Products can contribute to points under the rating system since LEED criteria are performance-based.
