Environmental Responsibility. We are a "Green" Company
OUR SIGNS & PLAQUES ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.
Art SignWorks is a "green" company. Our domestic and imported wood signs are "Green". We only use wood from renewable forests that use environmentally sound practices. For every wood sign we sell, we donate money to Arbor Day Foundation to plant two to five trees, depending on the size of the sign, .to support important tree planting efforts around the globe. .
Our Precision Board Plus HDU is made out of special eco-friendly components, including state-of-the-art ‘green urethane’ formulations.The new Plus formulation has achieved a certified “Carbon Balance” of 3 to 1 and a “Rapidly Renewable resource Content” of 23.9%.
We use environmentally friendly stains, primers, topcoats and clear-coats. The Minwax stains we use are Low VOC. Matthews Ultra Low VOC polyurethane acrylic paints and clear-coats limit VOC to less than 50 g/L while providing greater durability, gloss retention and hiding than standard acrylic polyurethane paints provide.We also use a Low VOC version of 1-Shot sign enamel for painting text, borders and artwork.
All our manufacturing and painting processes are Green, with minimal air pollution, because we our dust collectors, paint spray booths, and fully-enclosed and recyclable sandblast booths cause very low air pollution and carbon emissions.
