Recycled PETg Flat Sheet

John Vero, owner manager, of Access Plastics Ltd. & APM (Access Plastics Manufacturing) Ltd. both well established companies in the Stockholding, Distribution & Manufacturing thermoplastics industry based in Ashbourne, Co. Meath. John Vero spoke recently with members of EPPA ( European Plastic Producers Association) and the EPDA (European Plastics Distributors Association) highlighting the re-cycling of semi-finished thermoplastic sheet.

“It is incumbent upon all sectors within thermoplastics to re-cycle. Our housekeeping today - will be the legacy we leave to our children and our children’s children in the future” said Mr. Vero.

We at Access Plastics Ltd & APM Ltd are committed to playing our part in plastics re-cycling. And to show this commitment we have launched our new “MarPETg” re-cycled Polyester sheet range:-

MarPETg® Re-Cycled POLYESTER Sheet – CLEAR. Standard sheet size 2500 x 1250mm Thickness:- 3mm , 4mm , 5mm & 6mm thickness.

 

MarPETg® Re-Cycled POLYESTER Sheet

Recycled PETg flat sheet is an extruded thermoplastic copolyester flat sheet, from recycled PETg (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol Comonomer). The sheet is characterised by excellent strength to weight ratio, outstanding optical clarity, fire resistance and its exceptional thermoforming properties particularly at low temperatures. The superior quality of the sheet ensures suitability for a diversity of applications.
