We manufacture PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) plastic sheets only from HDPE bottles collected in Australia through the Council kerbside recycling system. The bottles are sorted, shredded and hot washed by a Melbourne based plastic recycler and delivered to us in bulk bags. We then compression mould PCR sheets in our plant directly from 100% recycled bottle flakes using just heat and pressure.
Sheet size is 2440x1220mm and sheets are available in the range of thicknesses from 10mm to 30mm. You can download our brochure on PCR sheets by clicking HERE.
PCR Grade 1 shown below is comprised of around 98-99% HDPE material made from clear milk and juice bottles with a small amount of residual coloured PE material from bottle caps and neck rings. Fragments of labels may be visible on the surface. We cannot control the colour range and distribution of coloured spots.
PCR Grade 1 sheets have similar properties to natural HDPE sheets. The material is not UV stabilised and therefore is not suitable for long-term outdoor use. It is not food grade so it is not suitable for direct contact with food or drinking water.
PCR Grade 1 sheets can be cut, machined, drilled and sawn using standard woodworking tools and can be joined using mechanical fasteners or plastic welding.
PCR Grade 2 sheets shown below contain a mix of clear and coloured HDPE bottles and caps. The material is comprised of around 95% PE with a small amount of PP and other recycled plastics. Fragments of labels may be also visible on the surface. We cannot control the colour range and distribution of colours.
PCR Grade 2 sheets are not as strong as Grade 1 and its surface is not as smooth as Grade 1. It is not UV stabilised and therefore is not suitable for long-term outdoor use. It is not food grade so it is not suitable for direct contact with food or drinking water.
PCR Grade 2 sheets can be machined, drilled and sawn using standard woodworking tools, but chipping on cut edges and flaking after surface machining may be evident.
PCR Grade 2 material is more friable than grade 1, so screw joints are not as strong. It is not suitable for plastic welding.
