Perspex Distribution (PDL) has announced the launch of Perspex re, its first range of 100% recycled Perspex cast acrylic sheets.

Perspex re is manufactured using 100% recycled methyl methacrylate (rMMA), obtained from Perspex acrylic sheet and production waste. 

This waste is depolymerised using various techniques including a distillation process that recovers methyl methacrylate (MMA), turning this waste back into its original monomer, regardless of original colour or aesthetic effect.  

Perspex will hold in stock a range of commonly ordered colours including clear, opal, dense white and black sheets, while a bespoke colour matching service will be available to allow customers to order in any colour.

PDL marketing manager Luke Martyn comments: “We are delighted to launch Perspex re and further increase the availability of recycled products to our customers.  There is a strong demand in many sectors to increase their share of recycled products and the introduction of Perspex re further supports this.  

“By using 100% rMMA in the manufacture of Perspex re acrylic sheets, a valuable contribution is made to the reduction of waste and C02 as it cuts down on the amount of virgin MMA required.  

“Perspex re is produced with a 10-year external warranty offering longevity of life and a truly long-term sustainable product.”
