The resins contain both post-consumer recycled material and rapidly renewable material and contribute to LEED points according to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

These Silmar brand resins are reported to have excellent thermal shock performance, consistent colour, strong cure properties and a resistance to cracking during fabrication. Interplastic say that this series of green resins are particularly suited to new construction, remodeling, and other cast polymer applications.

“These products provide our customers the ability to place green cast polymer marble, solid surface and engineered stone in the hands of builders and architects. Having cast surfaces that can be LEED Certified is a plus that will pull in valuable business” explains Daryl Francis, Business Manager, Marble/Casting Products.

SIL90BA-220ECO is an unsaturated polyester resin designed for general purpose cast marble applications that has 5.5% rapidly renewable content and 15% post-consumer recycled. SIL93BE-330ECO is an unsaturated polyester resin designed for solid surface applications, is acrylic modified and contains UV stabilizers. This resin has 5.5% rapidly renewable content and 15% post-consumer recycled.

SIL90BA-585ECO is an unsaturated polyester resin based on Silmar’s trademark “585” cast marble product line applications. The rapidly renewable content for this resin is 26%.
