How we Manufacture our Recycled Plastic Products

Operating for over 40 years, Centriforce Products Ltd is one of the UK’s pioneers of plastic reprocessing and recycling.

Centriforce’s operation is unique. It is one of very few who actually source waste plastic materials and turn them into complete, high quality products which are fully recyclable after use.

We are proud of all of our reprocessed plastic products, just as much as we are about the process which is used to create them. You can also be sure that we take our contribution seriously – sparing perfectly workable plastic from landfills in a time where environmental consciousness has never been so important.


Our Recycled Plastic Materials & LDPE Recycling Processes

We start by feeding in various recycled plastic materials from a wide range of sources including industrial waste, post-consumer, and retail environments.

Our team receives bales of plastic bottles, film, lump and even pipe which is then separated as required and then granulated. This is known as a LDPE recycling process where low-density polyethylene is recycled and turned into useful new materials and products.

This takes place at our industry leading LDPE granular extrusion plants where the useful materials are separated out so that we can utilise them in the manufacture of our product range.

Our Circular Economy Practices and Closed Loop Scheme

As one of the first pioneers of UK recycling, Centriforce is a proud contributor to circular economy practices. Founded on utilising waste materials, our manufacturing process increases the whole-life of plastics far beyond first use to create high quality products and extend the loop.

Centriforce has supported major UK retailers in engaging with circular use practices too. Through a ‘closed-loop’ initiative, Centriforce has accepted waste and leftover plastic from our partners to be fed back into our cycle.

The end products of recycled plastic materials fed into our LDPE granular extrusion plants are then distributed to these same partners to use in their own respective operations. This maintains what we term a ‘closed-loop’ system as these materials will eventually be fed back into the system once they have served their intended usage.


End Products of Recycled Plastic Processes

Centriforce manufacture items that are ready for end-use, such as Stokbord Cable Covers, Drum and our Locata range. Some of our products, particularly Duraplas, are also used as components that are further processed and fabricated for a wide variety of applications.

From boardwalks and community benches to ecological fencing, Centriforce has been proud to support a diverse range of projects.

Most products from our recycled plastic process are utilised in a similar way to traditional materials such as plywood, timber, steel and even aluminium. Our range of products tends to offer a more sustainable and cost-effective option to virgin plastic for many applications.

We take care when sourcing our plastic. From primarily UK-based companies, we select our plastic feed-stock to produce high specification, technical products which meet our customers’ needs and expectations.

All end products of the recycled plastic process run by Centriforce are fully recyclable, so that we can maintain our contribution to circular economy processes.
