Replas is excited to announce Polyrok pathways – a breakthrough that will find a home for post-consumer soft plastic material, as a partial replacement for aggregate in concrete footpaths. The very first paths will be poured by a Victorian Council in September 2020, that will see 100% RED Group material sourced from leading packaging brands become Polyrok, mixed in with aggregate to make concrete footpaths along streets for the local community. This latest innovation from Replas using state of the art technology results in a superior product that has more benefits than conventional concrete.
A one-kilometre footpath contains 875,000 plastic packages, diverted from landfill or from entering our waterways and oceans, and 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 (470 million pieces of soft plastic material) would permanently become part of the communities’ walkways.
Get in touch to make your Council next in line, and to find out how to concrete your future with Polyrok.
