PVC is one of the most widely used plastics in the world. It has been used in the medical industry for over 50 years in flexible containers and tubing. And it has been used in roofing systems since the early 1960s. But what happens when the roof has come to the end of its useful life? Oscoda Plastics, Inc., a sister company to Duro-Last Roofing, Inc., has been recycling PVC, primarily manufacturing scrap from Duro-Last, since 1989 and turning it into PROTECT-ALL Commercial Flooring. PROTECT-ALL is a commercial grade flooring system that is slip resistant, durable, easy to maintain, and provides stain and fire protection.
Watch this short video on how a 20-year-old Duro-Last roof was recycled into PROTECT-ALL flooring and used again, now on the deck sheet folding floor at Duro-Last’s Saginaw production facility.
