EcoGreen Recycled Acrylic Sheets

Eco-Friendly Recycled Plastic Sheets Are Here

TAP Plastics is excited to offer this green alternative to standard acrylic and plexiglass, Chemcast® EcoGreen Recycled Acrylic (plexiglass), the new environmentally friendly cell cast acrylic sheet produced with 100% recycled materials. This product eliminates tons of waste per year by using both pre and post consumer waste, repurposing the scraps that are available and creating sheets made from recycled plastic.

Recycled Plexiglass Sheets

From Advanced Acrylic Recycling Technology

Acrylic plastic is not easily recycled, but recent technological advancements have made plexiglass recycling a reality. Chemcast® EcoGreen acrylic recycling production starts by collecting the acrylic scraps generated from domestic fabricators and customers as well as from post-consumer waste. The recycled monomer methyl methacrylate is obtained by a de-polymerization process that recovers liquid monomer from PMMA.

Recycled Acrylic Sheets Have The Same Excellent Qualities as Virgin Acrylic

  • Recycled plastic sheets have the same mechanical and physical properties as cast acrylic sheets produced with synthetic monomer methyl methacrylate.
  • Lightweight
  • Shatterproof
  • Chemically resistant, including to ammonia, dilute acids, and aliphatic hydrocarbons
  • The finished product is free of VOCs and HFC.

Advantages of Using Recycled Acrylic (Plexiglass) Plastic Sheets

  • Reduction of thousands of metric tons of solid acrylic waste which is not biodegradable and without a reversible EcoGreen process these wastes go to landfill or incineration.
  • Reduction in the usage of raw synthetic monomer methyl methacrylate.
  • Re-use of products at the end of their lifetime.
  • Re-design of new added value ecological products.
  • Creation of trends and awareness of care and respect for the environment.
  • Applications made with Chemcast® EcoGreen contribute to green architectural projects and the sustainability of plastic use on our planet.

Fabricating With Clear Recycled Acrylic

Our recycled acrylic sheets fabricate and perform just like standard virgin synthetic acrylics. CNC router and laser cutting, solvent and polymerizable bonding, thermoforming, polishing, and more can be done just as with any standard acrylic sheet.

Environmentally Conscious Alternative to Standard Acrylic (Plexiglass)

  • This recycled acrylic is made from 100% recycled materials and can be reversible over and over again.
  • Chemcast® EcoGreen manufacturing process uses less water and generates less CO2 than cast acrylic sheets produced with synthetic monomer which significantly reduces the carbon footprint.
  • Reduction of thousands of metric tons of non-biodegradable solid acrylic waste.
  • Reduction in the usage of raw synthetic monomer methyl methacrylate.
  • Re-use of products at the end of their lifetime.
  • Re-design of new added value ecological products.
  • Creation of trends and awareness of care and respect for the environment.
  • Applications made with Chemcast® EcoGreen contribute to green architectural projects and the sustainability of plastic use on our planet.
  • It is one of the few brands worldwide made 100% from recycled cast acrylic.
  • It is the first brand certificated with an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) in Latin America.
