Vycom to Announce PVC Recycling Program at PRINTING United
Vycom Corp. (Scranton, PA) announced that the company will present its new PVC recycling program, designed to take back printed and unprinted PVC materials for recycling into Vycom products and other AZEK building products, at the upcoming PRINTING United show (Oct. 23-25, Dallas, booth #7644).
Vycom, a subsidiary of The AZEK Company, has developed this new recycling program to provide an answer to the perpetual question ‘what do I do with my used signage and scrap?’ While the details are still being finalized, the program is designed for print service providers and end-users to coordinate with an authorized distributor for drop-off or to collect used signage and scrap. These materials are returned to Vycom for recycling into the company’s PVC and HDPE products, ensuring they do not end up in landfills.
In addition to recycling its own scrap, the primary Vycom manufacturing location in Pennsylvania processes recycled material at a current rate of more than 50 million pounds per year, which is then used in Vycom’s sheet products. All recycling is done in the US for use in products produced by The AZEK Company and its subsidiaries.
Also, making its debut at the show is DigiLite utility PVC material, the latest addition to the Celtec signboard line, a premium PVC material that improves throughput in finishing, enabling print service providers to consistently and confidently produce high-value display graphics applications, per Vycom's statement.
