VOC Emission Certification

Indoor Air Quality | Meeting the CDPH Standard for Low Emissions

Armstrong takes the necessary steps to ensure indoor air quality (IAQ) is safe where we live, work, learn, heal and play. Our ceiling products are certified by the industry's most stringent standards through UL GreenGuard Gold, UL GreenGuard Formaldehyde Free, and Berkeley Analytical ClearChem.



The GREENGUARD Certification Program gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, which contribute to the creation of healthier interiors.  GREENGUARD Certified products meet stringent chemical emissions requirements, such as being screened for more than 10,000 volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
