Polyurethane Foam (Flexible ONLY)
Commercial production of flexible polyurethane foam began in 1954. The invention of this foam (initially called "imitation swiss cheese" by its inventors), was thanks to water accidentally introduced into the reaction mix.
Polyethylene foam is used in packaging, vibration dampening and insulation, as a barrier or buoyancy component, or as a material for cushioning.
Styrofoam (Polystyrene Foam)
Polystyrene foam is a lightweight, moisture-resistant material with exceptional insulation properties, and because it's comprised of more than 90% air, its remarkably buoyant.
We process our own styrofoam via our NEW densifier, cold compacting the material at a 50:1 ratio.
Plant based/compostable foam trays & peanuts)
Typical plant or starch based foam trays and packing peanuts which are often confused with styrofoam packing peanuts and trays. These trays usually come in a "tan" color, and biodegradable trays are usually "black" color. The peanuts are distinquishable by appliying water to them, as they will shrivel up, whereas styrofoam peanuts WILL NOT shrivel. Styrofoam foam trays will have a recycling symbol with a "6" in it, whereas these trays will say "plant" or "BIOXO" or recycling symbol with a "7" or "Nature", etc.
These cups are typically inner-lined with a polyethylene lining, which is often confused for a wax lining. Examples of these cups come from "Tim Hortons", "Starbucks", "Serious Coffee", "Canterbury", "Coke", etc.
Bicycle tires and tubes separated from each other. NO automobile or motorcycle tires/tubes accepted.
Foil Composite Bags
Composite of aluminum foil and a polyethylene plastic lining, which is typically found in coffee bags, candy wrappers, chip bags, etc.
