Covestro LLC honored for product safety and excellence for the fourth year in a row

DRUCKEN

PITTSBURGH, April 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth year running, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) recognized Covestro LLC with a Responsible Care® Product Safety Award. The company, a leading producer of high-performance polymers in North America, received the award at the ACC's annual Responsible Care® Conference & Expo, held recently in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Covestro was honored by the American Chemistry Council with a Responsible Care® Product Safety Award for PUReWallTM, a highly structural and energy-efficient panel designed for residential construction.

Covestro was one of four companies to receive a Responsible Care® Product Safety Award, which recognizes member organizations that have excelled at driving continuous improvement in chemical product safety. The company was honored for its PUReWall offering, which addresses challenges related to traditional spray polyurethane foam application in the residential construction market.

Covestro was also one of 49 companies to earn the Responsible Care® Facility Safety Award, presented to member companies for achievements in employee health and safety performance.

"Product safety, stewardship and sustainability are woven into the core of our business, and for good reason," said Jerry MacCleary, chairman and CEO, Covestro LLC. "I believe being recognized for the fourth consecutive year for the Product Safety Award is a powerful affirmation that our people are consistently solving industry challenges by applying safe and sustainable solutions in innovative ways."

Designed for residential construction, PUReWall™ panels are manufactured at a panelization facility in a controlled environment and installed at the construction site. This structural, high-performance wall replaces traditional exterior sheathing with polyisocyanurate rigid foam board and uses a new closed cell spray polyurethane foam formulation that results in a highly structural and energy-efficient panel.

"PUReWall™ is a faster, cost efficient, and safer alternative to stick-built housing that is sprayed in the field," said Lisa Marie Nespoli, manager, Product Safety & Stewardship, Covestro LLC. She explains that PUReWall™ panels are manufactured in a controlled environment, which eliminates field exposure to chemicals, improves application conditions and allows the panels to fully cure prior to installation. The panels are measured, assembled, insulated and sent ready for installation, which reduces jobsite waste and increases worker productivity.

At the annual Responsible Care® Conference & Expo, the ACC honors chemical industry leaders for outstanding work in chemical management, including environmental, health, safety and security performance. Award winners qualify based on exemplary performance and are selected by a committee made up of internal and external experts. The Responsible Care® Awards Program was developed to recognize companies that exemplified leadership and outstanding performance based on the implementation and execution of the Responsible Care® program.
