Compressed 100% postconsumer recycled HDPE

100 Percent is a material designed to have a minimal environmental footprint. Made entirely from postconsumer recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), it is waste transformed into engineered panels for design applications. 100 Percent is derived from recycled household packaging materials, such as milk and detergent bottles. Recent advances in sorting and cleaning technologies are used to recapture waste materials, which are first organized by color and then recombined into a variety of designs via a compression process.

Recycled HDPE panels are UV stable and ideally suited for education, science, and healthcare environments. Superior chemical-resistance properties also make these panels appropriate for applications like work surfaces and restroom partitions. The collection includes compressed particles of carefully chosen colors in neutral tones with chromatic accents.
