Polystyrene may be the hardest plastic to dispose of but in Envire’s unique mix it becomes a strength, giving Envire a texture and consistency that mimics wood. In total, the plastic waste recycled into Envire products saves more than 400 tonnes from going into landfill each year.
Red gum off-cuts are another waste product that Envire puts to good use. Years of testing proved that a particular mix of plastics and importantly, long strand organic fibres created a totally unique composite material that worked like wood, but without the disadvantages of wood.
Envire absorbs and resists impact. Unlike wood, Envire will flex and rebound after most impacts. It breaks clean while wood shatters, creating dangerous spikes.
Prouducts constructed from Envier can be routed for signage, drilled, screwed and sawn like wood, and its surface is smooth to touch without splinters.
Unlike CCA treated timber, Envire products will not leach chemicals into the soil. They are unaffected by extreme weather, including very high and very low temperatures. It is UV resistant and will not degrade under fierce sunlight.
Envire can even be immersed in water indefinitely, making it perfect for sensitive marine environments. And it is immune to all pests, including white ant attack, and unlike wood, Envire products will never rot.
The Envire range includes bollards of all shapes and sizes, outdoor tables, benches, seating, signage, posts, poles, totems, decking, fencing, boardwalks, planks, sleepers, garden edging, and continuous lengths. It comes in three standard colours, but others are available upon request.
Envire’s patented material has an extremely long life span and can be recycled up to four times before any degradation in quality. That makes it an ideal replacement for wood in agriculture, horticulture, aquaculture and landscaping, as well a variety of industrial and everyday uses. Most importantly of all, Envire is an extremely cost effective option in all these applications.
