Contribute to a Greener Environment

No matter which of our products you buy, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact.

Operating under the Guiding Principles of Responsible Care®, we strive to continuously improve our health, safety, and environmental performances. Our goal is to improve the environment by supplying sustainable and long-living acrylic products to the green building sector and to all other markets we serve.

Recycling ACRYLITE® Acrylic Products

Our acrylic products are one of the most readily recyclable plastics. Some grades can be re-extruded many times without losing their properties. Our acrylics can be "reverse-polymerized" to yield the original base chemical, MMA, which can then be used to make acrylic again or a number of other commercial products.

Roehm America LLC uses an average of 20 percent and up to 75 percent pre-consumer reclaimed acrylic in its extruded acrylic products. 

Health Compatibility

Roehm America LLC is one of the few manufacturers using only colorants that are free of heavy metals in its acrylic products and has done so since the 1980's. 

Our acrylic products are free of bisphenol A. Roehm America LLC does not add or use plasticizers in the production of our acrylic products. 

Our acrylic products do not contain components such as formaldehyde that can result in the release of harmful vapors or gases.

Our acrylic products do not contain paints or adhesives.
