Eco-preferred RECORE will not increase cost of wallcovering

16
Jun '09
Over one million plastic bottles have been diverted from landfills thanks to OMNOVA Solutions' revolutionary RECORE Recycled Wall Technology. This “best in class” recycled commercial wallcovering platform features the industry's finest design and functionality along with a sustainable profile. RECORE products look, perform and hang exactly like traditional vinyl wallcoverings, but contain 30% recycled content, including a minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled content.

After only seven months of production, OMNOVA has caused approximately 63,000 lbs. of plastic bottles to be recycled into commercial wallcovering, and all new designs within the company's BOLTA, ESSEX, GENON and TOWER brands have been converted to the RECORE platform. Combined, these brands currently feature approximately 350 unique SKUs in a diverse array of colors and designs – with additional patterns added each quarter.

OMNOVA will be showcasing RECORE Recycled Wall Technology at this week's NeoCon World's Trade Fair in Chicago, Illinois, June 15-17 (Booth No.8-8070).

“We are truly excited about this platform,” said Roger Oates, General Manager, OMNOVA Solutions Commercial Wallcoverings and Coated Fabrics. “RECORE represents a commitment by OMNOVA to meeting our customers' design and performance needs, while reducing the impact on the environment. We've always strived to achieve the highest levels of color, design and functionality. And now, we also diligently examine ways to reduce the environmental footprint of our products and processes as outlined in OMNOVA's Vision 2014 sustainability commitment.”

Wallcoverings made with RECORE Recycled Wall Technology include a minimum of 20% post-consumer waste. They also average 10% post-industrial content, with construction trim, bindery scraps, obsolete inventory and sample material finding their way back into the manufacturing process, leaving little to waste.

Using RECORE products, with their high percentage of post-consumer recycled content, is a smart choice for those pursuing building certification under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program. RECORE Recycled Wall Technology can be used for both new construction (LEED-NC) and commercial interior (LEED-CI) projects, and can contribute to up to six LEED credits under the Materials & Resources and Indoor Environmental Quality categories.

Wallcoverings manufactured utilizing the RECORE platform are GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality certified for low VOC emissions. These products are also printed with water-based inks, are highly durable and feature a long functional life – further enhancing their environmental profile.

Selecting eco-preferred RECORE will not increase the cost of wallcovering to building owners and facility managers. The new designs offered under the OMNOVA brands will be priced consistent with a traditional Type II, 20 oz. nonwoven-backed product. They are stain resistant, washable, scrubbable, and also recyclable through OMNOVA's Wallcovering Reclamation Program.
