Our Materials

Polyester

We manufacture both virgin and recycled polyester. The recycled polyester is derived from post-consumer recycled water and soda bottles, as well as from controlled post-industrial scrap.

Polylactic Acid (PLA)

PLA is derived from renewable resources.  In North America, it comes from corn.  In other areas of the world it may come from other plant forms such as sugar cane.

PETLite™

The newest product line is PETLite™, Clear Lam’s mechanically foamed PET, intended to replace HIPS, styrofoam, and other rigid packaging materials. (link to PETLite page)
