Always strive to help people everywhere achieve better health and enhance their quality of life
As public concern for SBS has grown, so has the demand for “healthier” building materials for the construction industry. As agents causing SBS were identified, new guidelines were created to restrict their use in many countries. For example, in 2004, the Japanese government identified and restricted the use of 13 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in building construction. In 2006, the Korean government mandated all new apartment buildings to disclose chemical concentrations of their indoor air. In response to the social and industrial demands, Sunstar initiated a project to develop innocuous sealants in line with the corporate philosophy, “Always strive to help people everywhere achieve better health and enhance their quality-of-life”.
