Recycled Plastic is better for the environment

The Benefits of Murray's Recycled Plastic

Material

The material is made up of 100% high quality recycled plastic residue, mainly from the nutrition and packaging industry.

Composition

The material is composed of, in terms of percentage, a proportion of LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) and PP (Polypropylene).

Production Process

The different plastics are grounded, mixed and fused together under high temperatures and pressed into moulds. During production, the material is mass coloured in order to obtain a homogenous colour.

Finish & Look

The surface is knot free, evenly coloured and shows a faced, slightly shining structure.

Colours

Black, brown, green or grey. The plastic is thoroughly mass coloured.

Properties

  • maintenance free
  • very durable
  • can be worked as wood
  • splinter-free
  • frost proof
  • insensitive to fungi and insects
  • does not exude toxic substances into the environment
  • wear-resistant
  • non-rotting
  • environmentally friendly
  • 100% recyclable
  • insulating
  • soundproofing
  • shock-proof and flexible

Tolerance

In products made of recycled plastic, tolerances up to 3% on the measurements are possible.

Workability

The material is easy to work (comparable to wood): screwing, nailing, sawing, drilling, planing, milling, stapling etc. are possible.

Directions

  • drill at low speed
  • rough-drill before screwing
  • preferably saw with a circular saw (WIDIA)
