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.
Using a world first process Australian
Composite Technology converts thousands of tonnes of plastic
waste into long-life strainers and recycled plastic fence posts. With
a life span of 50 years plus, the new composite fence posts are
quickly gaining acceptance with the general farming community,
vineyard owners and horse studs.
Immune from fungus, rot and termite attack the plasmar fence posts have
also been CSIRO tested as non-leaching making them ideal for
organic food production and aquaculture activities.
“Do it once and do it right” is the message from the
plasmar people, and many happy customers agree.
Like Rachel in Stoneville Western Australia who rated the
product so highly after fencing her horse stud that she has taken
on the agency for sale of the posts in that state. Rachel says “the
product was good to work with and the end result looked
Or Judie from Kinglake in Victoria who was affected by the
recent fires and replaced her burnt fencing with plasmar fence posts and
strainers and said “ I’m really pleased with the result, it is so
strong and sturdy and now that the spring bulbs are starting to
flower it just looks great”.
And, Peter from in Inverleigh in Victoria who has just finished
his fencing run and said ”he decided to give the new posts a go and
is pleased with the result”.
So if you want the satisfaction of a great looking job and the
confidence that comes with a product that has a long life letting
you “fence and forget” then these new plasmar recycled fence posts
might just be what you’ve been waiting for.
