There are different kinds of Green [roducts available in the market. One of them is the recycled glass countertops which are composed of 100% recycled glass (post consumer and pre-consumer) in a cement or petroleum based binder. A finished recycled glass countertop often ranges from 70 to 85 percent in recycled content.
Other type is the recycled paper material. This is made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper that has been saturated with proprietary PetroFree™ phenolic resins and selected natural pigments. This non-porous surface provides a lifetime of stain resistance and it absorbs virtually no water. Surface cuts or mars may be sanded or rubbed out with an abrasive pad. This type of materials is extremely rigid and dense, lending to additional applications beyond countertops such as furniture, vertical panels and partitions, signs and cutlery handles. Its superior strength allows innovative cantilevered designs up to 18-inches of unsupported overhang when using 3/4-inch material. This material emits no radon gases and is VOC-free.
