EcoSheet 18mm Recycled Plastic Boards

 

Solway are proud to announce ourselves as a master distributor of the EcoSheet Recycled Plastic Board.

 

What Has EcoSheet Been Used For?

 

EcoSheet was launched into the construction industry and has been used many times as a temporary hoarding material. Some recent applications have been trailer floors, fencing and other stable cladding.

EcoSheet has won the approval of the Construction Recycling Alliance and if applicable will lower your BREEAM score.

Some more glamorous uses of EcoSheet are the use of boards sold by Solway Recycling to Flemons Warland Design which won a gold medal at the Hampton Court Palace Show in 2011. Click here to view a beautiful use of our boards.

We brought the boards back to Solway after the show and they have since all found new homes the most exotic of which was to be tested by BAE systems to see if they are fit for purpose for their shelters on site. BAE have since ordered more EcoSheet through the Solway distribution channel so we know that it has undergone the most robust tests for electrical conductivity and it is very suited to working around electronics.

Manufacture of the 18mm Plastic EcoSheet

 

This board is made from mixed plastics from hard hats, plastic tubing unwanted off cuts and many other sources. The plastics are moulded together by a process called PIM (Powder Impression Moulding) which works very like a giant toasted sandwich maker forming a layered sandwich the outer layer gives a super smooth finish and the mixed plastic nature will give a flecked effect to the dark grey sheet.

Does EcoSheet come in any other thickness or dimensions?

At present no although we have the tools to cut the boards to size for you if you wanted an 8ft by 2ft board for example or four feet square boards then we'd be able to cut them to size with our state of the art routering unit.
