March 10, 2010

KENOSHA, WIAbatron Inc., a manufacturer of products for building and restoration, announces that several of its products have been GREENGUARD certified for low, non-toxic emissions. The GREENGUARD Certification Program provides a scientifically based, third-party qualification for manufacturers'' products. Certified products are rigorously screened for over 10,000 different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and must undergo ongoing verification and quality monitoring.

The products receiving certification are WoodEpox® and LiquidWood® which are used for restoring deteriorated wood, and Abocrete™ which is used for structural concrete patching, bonding and resurfacing. These products are solvent-free and used extensively both outdoors and indoors.

"Today, companies are calling products ''green'' without providing verification. We want to assure our customers that our products are environmentally safe, not just because we say so, but also because they have been independently tested by a recognized organization," said Marsha Caporaso, president of Abatron Inc.
