A wide variety of plastic products from computer cases and car bumpers to vegetable crates and bottle tops are all mixed together to give our plastic lumber its incredible strength.

For the scientifically minded, the actual types of plastic most commonly used in the mix are High Density Polyethylene , Low Density Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Acrylibutalstyrene, Polystyrene and Polythene.

These materials form 99% of the content. They are mixed with 1% masterbatch, for colour control, which is also made from entirely recycled material.

This means that the lumber profiles, Hebden 402 and furniture are all made from 100% recycled British waste.
