Prinscos Recyled Pipe ECOFLO®100 Approved as Virgin Equal
January 18, 2013
Prinsco’s ECOFLO 100, the industry’s first recycled pipe with a 100 year service life, has been approved by the City of Indianapolis for use in storm water projects specifying HDPE pipe. This is a significant step forward in the acceptance of recycled products for use in high performance applications, and is made possible by Prinsco’s rigorous pursuit of excellence towards the advancement of polymer science technology.
ECOFLO 100 dual-wall pipe is made with a minimum of 40% recycled content and passed extensive review by Indianapolis Testing Laboratory to verify its 100 year service, past product performance and conformity to application standards. The results prompted the City of Indianapolis to update their previous specification, which required the use of only 100% virgin HDPE pipe. They are one of the first municipalities to specify ECOFLO 100 as a virgin HDPE equivalent, yet many are expected to follow.
“Prinsco understands our customers cannot be expected to compromise performance in order to choose sustainable products. That’s why we’ve invested in the research and testing necessary to take recycled performance to a whole new level. Our ECOFLO 100 is not only comparable to virgin pipe, it provides a service life that is among the highest on the market today,” says Monty Storms, Prinsco Salesman to the City of Indianapolis.
Prinsco is committed to innovation with the ultimate goal of impacting the challenges facing our world today, such as water quality, agricultural productivity and sustainability. They offer engineered water management solutions for the residential, civil commercial, recreational turf and agriculture markets. Their premium HDPE products are widely known for having a gold stripe.
