We have more than a decade invested in being "first to market" by developing technological advancements to offer new innovative plastic lumber products and features for our customers to support their leadership in their respective industries:

  • Unmatched range of Capabilities. Co-extrusion, embossed surfaces, patent pending multi-color streaking finishes and production of up to 60" wide sheets are concrete examples of how we bring innovation to our recycled plastic lumber products, giving our customers distinctive advantages for them to design, innovate themselves and in turn grow their businesses.

  • Obsessive commitment to quality and sustainability. We have total in house control over the quality of our post consumer recycled plastic raw material by being vertically integrated in our post consumer plastic recycling process. We start with post consumer HDPE milk bottles recovered from the community based recycling programs and end with the highest fit and finish recycled plastic lumber products in the marketplace.


Recycle Content Certification Via Third-Party Analysis

Each year, Tangent diverts 15,000 tons of HDPE post-consumer recycled milk bottles from the landfill waste stream

That's approximately 210 million plastic milk bottles recovered annually and given new life as PCR Pure, our 100% Post-Consumer Recycled HDPE Resin. This is our primary feedstock as we build a wide array of premium HDPE recycled plastic lumber products.

We demonstrate accountability to our customers by contracting with GreenCircle Certified, LLC, a third-party firm to audit and provide annual certification of our environmental claims.

On July 1, 2015 Tangent achieved Recycled Content Certification by GreenCircle. This certification qualifies and substantiates our compliance with all Federal Trade Commission (FTC) 2012 Green Guidelines so that we and our customers move forward with confidence.
