Boral TruExterior Siding earns certification
Boral TruExterior Siding, part of Roswell, Georgia-based Boral’s category of poly-ash products, received distinction from the Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program, the company announced.
By including product materials that can be reused in technical or biological cycles, Boral TruExterior Siding became the second exterior siding product in the industry to earn the Cradle to Cradle Certified designation.
Joining the already C2C-certified Boral TruExterior Trim, Boral TruExterior Siding boasts a high level of sustainability with a minimum of 70% recycled content. The composition of a proprietary polymer and fly ash blend makes the product impervious to termites while helping to prevent the wicking and cycling of moisture.
“We are excited that Boral TruExterior Siding has joined the ranks of Cradle to Cradle Certified products,” said Tom Zimmerman, director of sales and marketing for Boral TruExterior Trim and Siding. “The introduction of our Trim and Siding has broken new ground with an offering that outperforms other exterior options in the marketplace. The addition of the C2C designation exemplifies the marketplace leadership of the Boral TruExterior Trim and Siding portfolio.”
Governed by an independent board of directors, the non-profit Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute administers the Cradle to Cradle Product Standard. According to the Institute, “the designation was created to bring about a new industrial revolution that turns the making of things into a positive force for society, economy, and the planet.”
