February 14, 2013 – Hendrix Molded Products is introducing its Cradle-to-Cradle recycling program for the return and recycling of its HPI polyethylene insulators products constructed using #2 recyclable plastic. Familiar household products made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) include milk, juice or water containers, liquid detergent bottles, and margarine and yogurt tubs, listed the company.
Hendrix says it has developed polyethylene insulators to help minimize environmental impact, as well as a means of minimizing costs to customers as an incentive to do so. As part of its new Cradle-to-Cradle program, customers are encouraged to dispose of insulators by sending any used HPI products to a local recycler, or by shipping them back to Hendrix for recycling at:
Hendrix Wire & Cable
Cradle to Cradle Program
53 Old Wilton Road
Hendrix HPI polyethylene insulators are suited for both bare wire and covered conductors, and offer an alternative solution to porcelain insulators. According to the company, the insulators deliver longer leakage distance and higher impulse strength.
