Wharington International mould the Ecospecifier certified GreenTag ™ Recopol™ recycled engineering grade plastic mouldings. These moulding s are used for the internal framing of sustainable commercial furniture to replace non-sustainable and labour intensive internal framing. Specifying Recopol™ internal framing is redeeming hard plastics from the pre and post consumer waste stream to create a new medium for professional furniture designer/makers supplying quality sustainable furniture into the expanding Green Building market.
Recopol™ has both economical and low environmental impacts with low tooling costs, low embodied water, low VOCs, and low energy consumption used in production. All recyclate is sourced locally. Recopol™ mouldings can be worked with traditional timber tooling to re-shape the mouldings into an infinite number of designs. Looking for a new custom design, Wharington manufactures the tooling in our engineering plant.
Wharington have been moulding with recycled engineering grade plastics for over 35 years and have moulded tens of thousands of chair shells for the Australian furniture manufacturing industry.
Wharington International manufactures all products under their ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Wharington have an Environmental Pledge to take back all their mouldings at end-of-life and all Recopol™ off-cuts from production for re-manufacture.
