Leo Laine Oy produces thermoplastic products made from high-density polyethylen, which is highly resistant to temperature fluctuations, shocks and chemicals and retains its shape well. Po-lyethylen has been seleced as our main material because its properties support the long life cycle of the product and the material is recyclable. Once a plastic product has served its user for decades, it can be recycled.
Leo Laine reuses or recycles all of the plastic materials used in its own production. This is possible because we produce the polyethylene sheet ourselves by the extrusion process. In our products, the share of recycled material is on average 30 % but we can make the product from completely recycled raw material if the customer so wishes.
Our recycling system can be divided into two parts: the reuse of clean plastic material and the recycling of floor chips. Clean plastic sheet pieces collected directly from the cutting processes are ground in powerful grinders and returned to the extrusion process to remake the plastic sheet.
