New Recycled Material for Counter Tops

May 20, 2008 at 9:40 pm 9 comments

Those of you trying to design and build under any of the “green” programs have had very few options when it comes to counter tops and other similar horizontal surfaces if you wanted these items to qualify for credits under any of these programs.

Well there is a material made from recycled flake and small shaving aluminum that qualifies for LEED credits and looks pretty good as well. It is called ALKEMI (alchemy) and is made from the aluminum shavings and polyester resin.

This composite material is strong and good looking. In its current form it is only about 35% recycled content by weight, but another version is coming soon that will utilize recycled acrylics and that will render the product 100% post industrial content.
