The NCMA Certified MSV Product symbol will serve as a trusted indicator of the highest quality manufactured stone veneer in the industry.
SUGARCREEK, Ohio, September 10, 2019 ProVia is among the first manufacturers to receive certification for its manufactured stone veneer under a new program that evaluates compliance with quality requirements and provides a NCMA (National Concrete Masonry Association) Certified MSV Product designation. ProVia has been a member of the NCMA since its inception (formerly known as the Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association) and played a vital role in pioneering the development of standards for this new certification process.
A Trusted Indicator of Quality
Remodelers, builders and homeowners alike will recognize the NCMA Certified MSV Product symbol as a trusted indicator of the highest quality manufactured stone veneer products in the industry. The certification process is exhaustive and is awarded based on demonstrating compliance with Product Requirements, Production Plant Quality Control, Personnel Requirements, among other relevant factors.
Product Requirements Independently Tested
Product Requirements span an array of properties as tested by a third-party testing laboratory, including:
- Compressive Strength
- Freeze-Thaw Durability
- Drying Shrinkage
- Shear Bond
- Overall Dimensions
- Saturated Unit Weight
ProVia’s manufactured stone formulations and production processes already represented the state-of-the-art for the industry when this certification process was recently finalized. Because of this, no changes were needed to comply with the standards.
