Sarnafil is First Roofing Manufacturer to Get UL Recycled Content Certification

SarnafilSika Sarnafil is the first roofing company in the U.S. to receive certification from UL Environment regarding the recycled content of its roofing membrane products. Sika Sarnafil’s 10 foot wide Sarnafil and Sikaplan roofing membranes, PVC Protection Layer, and Sarnatred group of products contain an average of 10 percent recycled vinyl content from pre- and post-consumer sources.

UL Environment, Inc., an Underwriters Laboratory company, validated these claims in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s guidelines for the use of environmental marketing claims.

“We are proud to be the first U.S. single ply roofing manufacturer to receive this designation, and we are confident that building owners and specifiers who are looking for sustainable building solutions will welcome this news,” said Brian J. Whelan, Senior Vice President of Sika Sarnafil. “Sika Sarnafil’s Roof Recycling Program provides the building owner with the option to use a roofing membrane with recycled content that can also be recycled at the end of its useful life.”
