WHAT GREEN SEAL CERTIFIES
Green Seal’s GS-11 leadership standard means a paint, coating, stain, or sealer is verified as safer for human health and the environment compared to similar products while delivering uncompromising performance. The standard covers wall and ceiling coatings, anti-corrosive coatings (previously GC-03 for Anticorrosive Paints), floor paints, primers, stains, finishes, and sealers intended for application to wallboard, tile, metal, wood, composite wood, concrete, stone, masonry, and terrazzo substrates, as well as other architectural substrates.

PERFORMANCE OF GREEN
All Green Seal certified products must demonstrate functional performance via an objective, scientifically validated method under controlled and reproducible laboratory conditions. Paints, coatings, stains, and sealers must meet ASTM standards in relevant areas such as adhesion, applicability, scrubbability, and washability.
