Material Highlight: High-Density Polyethylene

Material Highlight: High-Density Polyethylene

Recycled Plastic Lumber

(Wood grain appearance)

Maglin uses plastic lumber from recycled High-Density Polyethylene, creating a durable environmentally friendly alternative to traditional lumber.

Recycled plastic lumber does not incorporate any fillers such as wood fiber or wood flour which can absorb moisture and cause material degradation and color fading. The recycled plastics utilized in our plastic lumber is a combination of post-industrial, post-consumer regrind and wide-spec (industrial by-product) which would normally be disposed of in our landfills. It is perfect for most outdoor applications and utilized by industry, and manufacturing for OEM projects, park and recreation, government and agriculture.

Our plastic lumber is produced from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), colorants (pigments) and UV inhibitors.

  • Manufactured to exacting specifications and is resistant to corrosive substances, oil and fuels, insects, fungi, salt spray, and other environmental stresses
  • Does not absorb moisture and will not rot or splinter

Recycled Plastic Panels

(Orange peel appearance)

The recycled plastic panel material is comprised of a UV resistant pigment that is solid throughout the sheet allowing for less noticeable nicks or scratches, full color cut ends, and maintenance free use. 

Our product is made from 100% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable.

Panel plastic can be used in an array of applications where high durability and no maintenance are desired in both wet and dry applications.
