    • FAQ

    Ecocrylic® is a new and unique material and is the first extruded acrylic that is almost entirely made from recycled XT acrylic. We are extremely proud that we are the first supplier in the Netherlands to add this beautiful, high-quality material to our range. Ecocrylic® is extruded acrylic (plexiglass/pmma), which is made from at least 70% recycled pre- and post-consumer acrylic and 30% virgin (not recycled) acrylic. The XT acrylic used for these sheets comes from used LCD screens and production waste.

    PyraSied considers it important that anyone who wants to use acrylic in their idea or product can now also choose the recycled variant. That is why we are continuously working on expanding our recycled acrylic collection. We are therefore happy with the addition of Ecocrylic® XT.

    Recycled acrylic such as Ecocrylic® is sustainable and an especially green choice in the acrylic world. The recycled acrylic is just as crystal clear, colourfast and UV resistant as the non-recycled variants. The great advantage of this material is that it can be recycled time and time again and can be reused. It is a circular material. Of course, PyraSied can take the material back after use to recycle it again. So all the reasons to choose recycled Ecocrylic®!

    Clear Ecocrylic® is the durable, circular variant of the standard extruded acrylic. You can choose this material if you prefer virgin (non-recycled) acrylic.

    Difference Ecocrylic® XT and Greencast® GS

    In addition to Ecocrylic® XT acrylic, we also have Greencast® recycled acrylic in our range. Greencast® consists of 100% recycled cast acrylic (GS) and can be ordered in multiple colours, thicknesses and surface structures. Cast acrylic is produced per sheet, which offers flexibility. This makes multiple options possible with this type of acrylic. Ecocrylic® is made from extruded acrylic, also known as XT. XT acrylic has hardly any thickness tolerance, which is useful if the material has to be placed in a profile, for example. In addition, this material is produced in a continuous process, making XT acrylic cheaper than GS acrylic.

    Stock Ecocrylic® clear recycled acrylic

    Recycled extruded acrylic is currently in stock in various thicknesses from 2 to 5 mm. Ecocrylic® XT has a maximum sheet size of 2440x1220mm. Are you looking for recycled acrylic in colour or other surface structures? Then you can choose Greencast®. This material is available in clear, satin, white, black, coloured and opal. Greencast® can also be produced in other colours, thicknesses and types such as metallic, translucent or satin. A minimum order quantity applies for this. Ask our Sales & Support department (sales@pyrasied.nl) for more information.

    Application possibilities

    Ecocrylic® is recycled extruded acrylic with all the good characteristics of virgin extruded acrylic. This allows recycled acrylic to be used for the same applications as normally extruded (not recycled) acrylic. The material is particularly suitable for projects where sustainability is very important. Ecocrylic® is often used in shop interiors, stand- and set constructions and the signing branch as secondary windows, glazing, showcases, displays, protective covers, furniture and wall presentations for example. This material is less suitable for very demanding optical applications such as light guide plates. For this, we advise using non-recycled acrylic.

    Please take a look at our Acrylic Community for some examples of applications with transparent acrylic.

    Fabrication possibilities

    Ecocrylic® can be fabricated. The possible fabrications are cutting, milling, laser-cutting, bonding, line bending, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing. Ecocrylic® cannot be bent or tempered in an oven. However, line bending is no problem at all.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    How is acrylic recycled?

    PyraSied has committed itself for more than three years to taking back acrylic for recycling. The remains and the used acrylic are collected in a large bin and then sent to the recycling plant. The depolymerization process starts there.
    Molecular chains are cracked by the heating process. The PMMA (acrylic) residues are hereby returned to a liquid state.
    The next step is distillation. The impurities are separated, whereby the original monomer is obtained. After this R-MMA remains: Recycled Methyl Methacrylate monomer. This is used to make new recycled acrylic sheets.
    The result: fully recycled acrylic sheets made from 100% post-and pre-consumer acrylic. We call this material Greencast®.
    A dye is added to the coloured sheets. This gives the sheet a different colour. No colourant is added to clear sheets.

    Why isn’t Ecocrylic® cheaper than normal cast acrylic?

    Often, the quality of recycled material is less than the original. This is not the case with acrylic. The quality is the same as the quality of normal extruded acrylic. In addition, the cost price of Ecocrylic® is the same as the "virgin" variant. The process to produce Ecocrylic® and standard extruded acrylic is the same, but the raw material is different. That is why we offer Ecocrylic® for the exact same price.

    How do we know for sure that Ecocrylic® is really made from recycled acrylic?

    We are regularly asked if Ecocrylic® and Greencast® are really "recycled" and that it is not a fake. We can prove that this is really not the case.

    The supplier of Ecocrylic® is not only a supplier of recycled plastics but also a recycler of acrylics. PyraSied production waste is collected by our supplier and used to produce new acrylic sheets. This is a completely closed circle. Our supplier aims to be able to issue a certificate in the summer of 2020, proving that the material that is supplied for recycling is fully used in this material.

    Is there a difference between virgin (not recycled) acrylic and recycled acrylic?

    No, the properties are completely the same. Recycled acrylic is less suitable for very demanding applications such as light guide plates. But besides that, the material is suitable for the same applications.

    Is it possible to make Ecocrylic® sheets in other colours?

    Ecocrylic® cannot be produced in other colours, but our recycled cast acrylic Greencast® can! We even have more than 17 colours standard in stock in various thicknesses. Greencast® can also be produced in other colours, thicknesses and types such as metallic, translucent or satin. A minimum order quantity applies for this. Ask our Sales & Support department (sales@pyrasied.nl) for more information.

    Can you easily fabricate recycled acrylic?

    Acrylic is very easy to fabricate. Fabrication possibilities: cutting, milling, laser-cutting, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing. Unfortunately, Greencast® cannot be bent by draping. Clear Greencast® and Ecocrylic® turn slightly yellow on the ends as soon as you bend it in an oven. However, line bending or tempering is no problem at all.

In our fabrication page, you will find all the services that we offer and you can request a quote. We deliver from our excellently equipped workshop - where high-tech machinery and traditional craftsmanship ensure optimum results, completely customized according to drawing or design.

    Is acrylic easy to maintain?

    Acrylic is very easy to maintain with the use of a soft microfiber cloth and a mild household cleaner. The use of brushes, sponges and abrasive cleaning agents is not recommended, as this can cause tiny scratches. Accumulation of these types of scratches ultimately gives a dull result. However, this can be remedied by polishing the scratched surface. It is also possible to fill in light scratches with our VuPlex plastic cleaner, for example. For more information, see our cleaning instructions.
