"Kinder Rolls Out A Most Palatable Solution"

Kinder & Co, one of Australia's leading suppliers to the mining and manufacturing industry, has again broken new ground in recycling – this time with the conversion of their customer's used polymer conveyor rollers into shipping pallets.

This cradle-to-cradle initiative means that after years of hauling bulk materials to reach the end of their useful life, Kinder's K-Polymer Rollers are 're-born' once they are returned to the company's headquarters in the Melbourne suburb of Braeside.

"Forget the Rest head straight for the Best…plasmar"

Queenslanders are definitely bypassing some traditional fencing and landscaping materials and making a bee line for plasmar products as they are proving to be the best alternative fencing and landscaping materials when it comes to resolving or avoiding some of the issues experienced in difficult soil and climate conditions.

The 100% recycled plastic products are robust, solid and strong and have a wonderful long lifespan of 50 years plus. The plasmar material is impervious to white ants and fungus, will not rot and is such a versatile material that it can be worked with in a similar manner to a good hardwood. Why waste time with the rest when you can fence and landscape with the best?

"The Post with No Regrets"

Through April and May the word has passed around
That the post by name of plasmars here to stay.
There’ve been samples by the plenty dropped all about the town
At vineyards, farms and studs along the way.
And the interested locals, with a sniff of something new
Mustered at the plasmar billboard when it stopped
They jostled for position there were more than just a few
On the plasmar billboard curious stares were locked

"A Bonus for Tasmania"

Tasmanians have always shown a huge interest in environmentally friendly products and there has been no exception when it comes to the fully recycled plasmar composite plastic products (manufactured by Australian Composite Technology). Enquiry and demand for fence posts, strainers, rail, garden edging, planter boxes and bollards has shown that Tasmanians are determined to be early adopters of these products as long life alternatives to timber.

The attraction has not only been the environmental benefits of the plasmar products, the life long durability of the products (with CSIRO testing showing a 50 to 100 year life span) has had everyone doing their sums and comparing the savings over the product life and these are very attractive indeed.

"Honda Innovation To Serve Communities"

Honda Australia has partnered with Australian Composite Technologies (ACT) in a recycling initiative which reprocess obscelete parts into composite fence posts, bollards and other products.

ACT’s long-life plasmar fence posts are made of 100 per cent recycled products, are CSIRO tested for durability and proven to last more than 50 years. Plasmar goes beyond innovation, being immune from termite and fungal attack and fire resistant, making it a practical and much safer option to that of traditional timber fencing.

"What Dustin Hoffman Didn't Know"



In the 1967 movie The Graduate Dustin Hoffman learns that the future is in plastics. What he doesn’t know is that the future also brings with it a mounting environmental problem. Industrial waste plastics and used polymer based packaging material now dominate the landscape.

While government authorities struggle with the growing problem one Victorian company has forged a new future for waste plastics by converting the material into plasmar fence posts.

"Slow Art Collective - TS2: July 2009" (Hard Plastic Recycling)

The project TS2 (Transfer Station 2) is a collaborative installation art project by Slow Art Collective (SAC) in partnership with Moonee Valley City Council Waste Transfer Station and the adjacent Incinerator Arts Complex. We have orchestrated in-kind sponsorship from recyclers linked to the Transfer Station, such as TIC Group and Australian Composite Technologies, which means that we will be using the existing paths of transportation to bring back the materials after they have been through part of the recycling process, and then turn them into a collaborative art installation.

"Recycle Plastics To Fence Posts"

You probably think you're doing your bit for the planet by recycling household waste like plastic bottles and cartons. But in fact, most kinds of plastic are extraordinarily hard to recycle and they end up in landfill. Plastic in landfill can take hundreds of years to biodegrade and burning or melting it lets off toxic gases, so it poses a real quandary. A Melbourne business man has spent nearly a decade figuring out how to turn the 77-thousand different types of plastics into fence posts.

Roger Sweeney, Director of Australian Composite Technology gets plastic waste from all over Australia. He manages to reuse everything, from hard hats to car bumper-bars and mobile phone casings. The ABC's environment reporter, Claire Gorman went to meet him recently at his production plant.

"Kinder & Co Looking to the Future With Component Recycling"

For more than 50 years, many products, both consumer and industrial, have been made from some type of plastic. Its physical and chemical properties give it versatility in countless applications, with new uses for plastic appearing almost daily.

In industrial applications, the strength and versatility of plastics has lead to its use in areas where steel has been more traditionally used. One such industry that is seeing the ever-growing use of plastics because of what can be a particularly aggressive environment, is the Bulk Materials Handling Industry. A typical example of this, is the K-Polymer range of Conveyor Rollers offered by Victoria based Kinder and Co., which are manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE), or their range of Elevator Buckets, manufactured from the same type of composite material.
