“As a Danish family business, we want to actively participate in the green transition in construction. We believe we have a shared responsibility to leave the world in good shape for future generations.  Our packaging policy is a concrete example in which we have already done a lot and can continue to invest”, says Anders Bertelsen Toft, director (CCO) of Alfix.

 

Recycled plastic

Alfix 1K Sealant is now supplied in beautiful recycled plastic buckets for the environment. The former white virgin plastic has been replaced by recycled material with a light gray color. This color can proudly be seen at the top edge of the bucket. With this, the Alfix 1K Sealant packaging is in line with the company’s previous initiatives in the field of recycled plastic. The buckets for Alfix 2K Sealant, Alfix DuraPuds 800 SR (façade plaster) and Alfix DuraDec 8000 SR (façade paint) were also previously transferred to plastic made from recycled waste.

“Material made of recycled plastics waste are hardly inferior to virgin (or new) plastic” says Remco Meijer, account manager at Dijkstra Plastics. “Not only are there more and more colours available in the recycled material, but also the quality is increasing and becoming more consistent.” Dijkstra Plastics already produced 3 million more buckets from recycled material in 2020. “And the growth is definitely continuing, for the sake of the environment but also the technical developments that push the market towards circularity.” says Remco in conclusion. “But these developments are also necessary for plastic to fulfil the role it can have in the more sustainable future. Together with Alfix and Danish distributor Myhre Trading, we are happy to support these types of green transitions.”
