Plastico talks to WISE Network

The WISE Network team at Bangor University worked with Plastico to test their recycled plastic beams to ensure that the working loads of the beams were sufficient for them to be used in building and landscaping applications.

As well as testing the beams, the team undertook load calculations in accordance with the appropriate British Standards to help the company give confidence in their products to their clients.

This work has allowed Plastico to explore new markets for their recycled plastic products, moving from garden furniture to load bearing outdoor applications.

Working with WISE Network has enabled us to develop new markets and expand our product range.  Working with an adaptable team who understood our needs was superb,” said Director John Northcott.
