TYPES OF ECOLOGICAL PLASTIC AND ITS IMPORTANCE
Every day it is more common that the old idea about plastic as a polluting material is changing trend. Although it is true that plastic waste tends to be polluting, in turn said waste can be recycled virtually unlimitedly.
At an architectural level, plastic allows applications in which its lightness and resistance to external conditions or humidity puts it ahead of other products such as glass or wood. In the industrial and automotive sector, the old metal components are today replaced by high-strength lightweight plastics, which favor the lightness of the means of transport, thus reducing fuel consumption. As experts in recycling plastic materials, today at Polimer Tecnic we are going to explain everything you need to know about the types of ecological plastic that exist.
TYPES OF ECOLOGICAL PLASTIC
At Polimer Tecnic we are experts in plastic materials, we work with different recycled plastics, giving them a new use and thus contributing to sustainability. These are the types of ecological plastic that we offer:
RECYCLED LAUNDRY METHACRYLATE:
It is a colorless material ten times lighter than glass and highly resistant to ageing. It is produced from the chemical recovery of methacrylate residues. This process makes it possible to obtain a product with the same characteristics as the non-recycled product and to recycle it an unlimited number of times. The recycled cast methacrylate It is characterized by its transparency and ease of polishing its surface to recover its characteristic surface shine, which is why it is a highly demanded ecological plastic.
VITRODECK RECYCLED WPC DECKING:
Vitrodeck recycled WPC flooring is a material designed for the execution of outdoor ecological WPC decking, technical wood made with recycled plastics from industrial and urban waste. It is a resistant and durable ecological plastic product, suitable for spaces such as parks and gardens, and even walkways in ports and beaches where they can be continuously exposed to water, without suffering damage. The industrial origin of the raw material prevents the spread of pests and the usual damage to materials such as wood.
RECYCLED POLYETHYLENE PROFILES:
Material that is produced with the use of urban, industrial and domestic waste, generating one of the most ecological and resistant options, within the range of plastics. Suitable for the realization of pergolas and all kinds of urban furniture material and garden furniture.
Recycled polyethylene profiles can also be used in fences, enclosures and railings for balconies and terraces.
RPC, RECYCLED POLYCARBONATE:
Within the industrial sector, mainly the automotive industry, is one of the main consumers of recycled polycarbonate, a material that adds to the resistance of polycarbonate, the reuse of the material in its production. A light, safe and easy-to-clean material, suitable for making trays or other elements.
PET, ONE OF THE MOST USED RECYCLABLE PLASTICS
PET (the most used plastic in the world) is one of the most recycled materials. It is the material with which food consumption containers, hygiene and cleaning products and packaging are mainly manufactured. PET is a plastic whose recycling is practically unlimited and from its reuse new containers, technical wood or even fibers are obtained with which textiles can later be produced.
RECYCLING PLASTIC: A COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
At Polimer Tecnic we have a firm commitment to the environment. The cuttings of our materials are separated in a specific way, always prioritizing the option of recycling, thus extending the useful life of the material, while reducing the number of waste. Our spending policy 0, commits us to reduce the environmental footprint as much as possible and that is why we are committed to ecological plastic and recycled plastic materials.
