Polyrok concrete is the latest innovation from Replas, a sustainable recycled plastic aggregate alternative to mineral aggregate in concrete for pathways, kerbs & channels that find a home for the most problematic waste stream, soft plastic. Polyrok consists of about 95% Red Group post-consumer soft plastic waste with about 5% engineered recycled content to ensure maximum performance in concrete. State of the art technology allows Replas to use soft plastics that are recovered from the REDcycle program in Coles and Woolworths with leading packaging brands. Fit for purpose, strong, and durable recyclable concrete from Replas is the new way for councils to be part of the Circular Economy.
This latest innovation from Replas results in a superior product that has benefits over conventional concrete. Specific plastic-to-cement binding technology has been tested to meet Australian Standards, efficiently and effectively replacing conventional mineral aggregate while diverting plastic from landfill. We are challenging every Council in the country to get on board to be part of the solution for their plastic waste.
If each Council in Australia committed to just one kilometre of footpath, 1,900 tonnes of Polyrok (approx. 470 million pieces of soft plastic material) would permanently become part of the communities’ walkways.
