CertainTeed launches smart phone application

CertainTeed Corp., Valley Forge, Pa., has launched a Quick Response (QR) code smart phone application to simplify how architects, contractors, distributors and consumers receive information about CertainTeed products.

Users can point a QR-enabled smart phone's camera at a product's barcode, called a 2D QR code. The application instantly scans and reads the barcode and, upon recognition, processes and decodes the image allowing users to view websites, videos and technical documentation about the product.
