A study completed at the Environmental Health Sciences Department of the Cleveland, Ohio-based Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, has confirmed that cleantechnology paper coatings from Ecology Coatings, Inc., completely inhibit the growth of the toxic black mold, "Stachybotrys chartarum," on wallboard.
Case Western Reserve's conclusions are based on the advanced testing methods employed by their researchers. Traditional testing protocols applied to wallboard, such as those contained in ASTM D 3273 (Standard Test Method for Resistance to Growth of Mold), rely solely on visual observation and fail to account for invisible mold growth below the surface. Case Western Reserve's researchers employed advanced quantitative methods that confirmed toxic black mold inhibition even at these previously untested microscopic levels.
