Polcore is an innovative and proven framing material made from recycled polystyrene.
Recycled polystyrene is made up of waste products from mainly two sources:
- The Electronics Industry
- Plastic Packaging, Mainly from the Food Industry
It contains no detectable formaldehyde or carcinogenic substances, and is free from lead (as can be proved by lead testing). The manufacturing process is clean, and as such:
- We Do Not Use Spray Paints
- We Use Decorative Transfer Films
- We Recycle All Our Waste Extruded Product
Therefore, the material that constitutes recycled polystyrene mouldings broadly conserves the use of the earth's natural raw materials by using those that have been recycled. Our ranges of wood products are from companies that purchase their timber from sustainable sources and reforestation projects. Other ecological considerations include the use of water-based paints and varnishes.
