Recycled Acrylic

Recrylic® brings the same durability, performance and aesthetic appeal as virgin acrylic. Here’s how it works:

  • Used displays and scrap acrylic are collected for recycling (instead of going to landfill)
  • Collected acrylic is processed for recycling
  • Recycled acrylic is formed into Recrylic sheets in a variety of colors and thicknesses
  • Recrylic is used in manufacturing new products, the same as with traditional acrylic
  • Products are deployed – and remain in use until they are ready to be recycled again

More than one-third of the operation is powered by fuel that is distilled during the recycling process – making Recrylic the most environmentally recycled acrylic solution available.

Because Recrylic is both 100% recycled and 100% recyclable – over and over again – it provides an evergreen approach to preserving natural resources.
