Recreational

From swimming pools to roller coasters to basketball backboards to playground equipment, if you’re having fun, chances are plastics are along for the ride. Relax and enjoy the durability of plastics!

 

Environmental and Safety:

 

Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture, transport, fabricate, install, maintain, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding recreational applications.
