Environmental Benefits of Resilica
Resilica is manufactured using up to 100% recycled waste glass, reducing landfill and destructive stone quarrying.
Resilica is produced using solvent free resins. Once cured these resins are totally inert and contain no VOCs.
Water used in the manufacturing process is recycled where possible.
The manufacturing process is a ‘cold’ one, with minimal imbued energy.
Every piece of Resilica is cast to order to minimize manufacturing waste.
Equipment used during manufacturing is cleaned using bio-degradable solvents.
Eight Inch Ltd sources consumer, production and manufacturing waste glass from the UK.
Resilica is manufactured entirely and exclusively in its UK factory thus minimising the carbon footprint associated with imported surfaces.
