At AAA Polymer, we pride ourselves in being innovators within the market, and we continually work toward driving progress. One of the ways we achieve this goal is by providing the highest-quality, 100% post-consumer resins (PCR) LDPE pellets and resins. These pellets are offered in two different Trex products as a result of plastic film recycling from their railing and decking operations:

  • Trex Spartan™ Pellets are the do-all solution. As the general application PCR pellet, Spartan pellets are ideal for molding and profile extrusion.

  • Trex Cardinal™ Pellets were uniquely engineered for refined/advanced applications, such as tubing, plastic bags, or blown film.

Together, AAA Polymer and Trex brings more than 65 years of collective experience providing solutions that make a difference to the environment and your bottom line.

Why Choose AAA Polymer’s Trex LDPE PCR Content?

When you choose to include Trex Recycled LDPE Pellets, you can close the loop on your company’s recycling efforts and reap the following benefits:

  1. Environmentally Responsible – As a truly green solution, our PCR content is made with 100% recycled materials. No virgin industrial or plastic films or materials are included with our LDPE PCR resins.

  2. Comparable Strength — Since our LDPE PCR resins are of the highest quality, you'll enjoy greener, more environmentally conscious products with the same strength as virgin resins.

  3. Consistent Availability — We’ve partnered with Trex because of their reliability and  proprietary processes that allow for a steady source of high-quality pellets that never waivers in supply or size.

  4. Versatile Number of Applications — Whether you make plastic bags, packaging, irrigation tubes, or PCR can liners; you can find the perfect pellet for your application.

  5. Certified Green Solution — Trex Cardinal and Trex Spartan pellets are certified by the International Council Code (ICC) for both containing 100% post-consumer content material.

  6. Certified-Compliant SB270 Resin - This resin has been properly cleaned and contains 100% postconsumer feedstock, which means it can be used to make bags that are compliant with SB270.

Partnering with AAA Polymer for LDPE PCR pellets is a win-win! You can help the environment as well as pad your bottom line.
