WHAT WE MAKE
Recyclable & Long Lasting

Versatile, high-quality, durable thermoplastic materials…not single-use plastics

  • Acrylic, Polycarbonate and our other thermoplastics are recyclable at qualified recycling centers nationwide
  • Thermoplastics can be reground and extruded into new products
  • Our product packaging (cardboard, masking films) are also recyclable
  • Designed for applications that require a long service-life, such as signage, windows and skylights
  • Our plastics contain some recycled content in the form of preconsumer/post-industrial plastics
  • Formulated in a responsible manner to meet global product stewardship requirements

HOW IT'S MADE
Responsible Manufacturing

How we make our products reflects our overall philosophy of continuous environmental improvement

  • Maintaining full compliance of all environmental regulations
  • Overall recycling rates for our sites range from 50% - 80%
  • Reduce/Reuse/Recycle efforts have seen reductions in waste disposal of over 70% at some sites
  • Over the past 20 years, water savings and clean air emission programs have reduced water consumption and air emissions company-wide, with some sites achieving reductions over 75%
  • Continue to lower the energy intensity of our manufacturing operations through energy efficient lighting, motors, and innovative, optimized manufacturing processes
  • Renewable energy is part of the energy consumed at some of our sites–we continue to explore greater energy diversity
  • Pro-active outreach with the neighbors around our manufacturing sites, including regular engagements with all community stakeholders

HOW IT'S USED
Enabling Green Innovation

Our thermoplastics play an important role in advancing human well-being, energy conservation and quality of life

  • They enable mass transit vehicles to reduce overall weight to save on fuel
  • Our lighting solutions are the premier choice for LED smart-lighting applications with high energy efficiency
  • Acrylic and Polycarbonate products are used in sustainable applications such as solar panels, skylights, greenhouses and sound barriers
  • Food safety applications including Acrylic sneeze guards, PETG food containers, and Polycarbonate guards for food processing equipment
  • As safety/security glazing to protect human health and safety, including Polycarbonate in burglary-resistant and bullet-resistant applications
