What is Recrylic®?

Recrylic is a product line of certified recycled cast acrylic sheets, available in a wide variety of colors, thicknesses and finishes

Is Recrylic certified recycled?

Recrylic is certified recycled by the internationally recognized Global Recycled Standard (GRS) – which sets rigorous requirements for recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. Recrylic is also certified recycled under the Recycled Content Certification (RCC) standard administered by SCS Global.

Can I use the recycling certification logo on my finished pieces?

Yes, and this is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to using sustainable materials.

Using the relevant logo requires that a certified company (such as Recrylic) produces the finished pieces and that a minimum recycled content is met for the finished pieces. Contact us for details.

How much CO2 does Recrylic save vs. virgin acrylic?

In general, producing one pound of virgin acrylic requires two pounds of petroleum or the equivalent of six pounds of CO2. By replacing virgin acrylic with recycled acrylic, you can help preserve limited resources and reduce the carbon footprint, accordingly.
