MiraTEC is a Green Product
With the Earth’s natural resources in limited supply, choosing products that are manufactured responsibly is more important than ever. MiraTEC uses sustainable products throughout its production processes and has earned third-party certification for no added urea formaldehyde. MiraTEC products also contribute to industry green building programs.
No old growth wood is used in the manufacture of MiraTEC trim. It is made from wood that is of no commercial timber value and is the byproduct of other operations. This leftover wood is also detrimental to the overall vitality of the forest.
– All wood comes from an area within a 150 mile radius of the Towanda, PA production facility.
– 100% northern hardwoods are used, which includes maple, beech, oak and other species.
MiraTEC trim is treated with zinc borate, an EPA-registered biocide and a naturally occurring earth mineral that is environmentally safe and ensures protection against termites.
NO ADDED UREA FORMALDEHYDE
MiraTEC trim has no added urea formaldehyde. This is certified by Scientific Certification Systems under certificate number SCS-NAUF-01802.
Through repeated testing by the Composite Panel Association (CPA), MiraTEC trim has demonstrated formaldehyde emissions equivalent to background levels found in the environment.
COMPLIES WITH CARB
MiraTEC trim is acknowledged by the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) 93120 through CARB executive order N-17-105 (re-certified in June of 2018) to utilize exempt status ultra-low emitting formaldehyde (ULEF) resins.
LOW VOC PRIMER
MiraTEC trim is primed with a low VOC primer containing a mildewcide.
