At Plaskolite, we believe a commitment to minimizing the impact of manufacturing activities on the environment is one of our chief responsibilities.
As a global manufacturer of high-quality thermoplastic sheet products, Plaskolite not only works to meet national and international environmental regulations, but seeks to continually shrink our environmental footprint. We implement continuous process improvements such as recycling, reusing, water consumption reduction and enhancements to energy efficiency. We have also established an in-house, product stewardship program that conducts routine laboratory testing and evaluation of product ingredients to ensure our output meets meet global product standards, such as the European Union's RoHS standard.
While there is no post-consumer recycled content in Plaskolite acrylic products, due to the high optical quality needs of many our sheet product applications, acrylic products can and do support environmental sustainability efforts. The inherent durability of acrylic sheet products translates into minimal replacement of acrylic parts and items, which, in turn, reduces waste generation. Additionally, acrylic sheets have lower thermal conductivity than clear standard glass, which corresponds to a higher level of insulating values.
Through these initiatives, Plaskolite is committed to sustainability, keeping the environment in mind as we improve our manufacturing processes.
Plaskolite's acrylic sheet products and their plastic protective masking films are recyclable** (**Recycling programs for this product may not exist in your area).
