Zoo’s in particular have to be environmentally friendly, not only to their guest (the animal residents) but also by the public, in their choice of materials used to house and shelter the animals.
In an environmentally – conscious society, all hazardous or non-recyclable materials must give way to eco-products. Polyboard is exactly what you need – it is different as well as unique. Polyboard is a true eco-product, that is why The Canadian Government and U.S. Pentagon have selected products made of Polyboard, which are now widely used by all Government departments. Polyboard has also been awarded the most coveted “Eco-Mark’ by the Japanese Government’s EPA.
Polyboard is a hygienic recycled product that eliminates polluting plastic waste to save our trees and rainforest, it is full recyclable, reusable and virtually everlasting while creating no gas emissions in production, delivering a total zero-waste solution and environmental protection to your community.
Polyboard offers the best of all worlds – it is not wood plastic composite (WPC) that is perishable as are moisture absorbing wood products, nor is it made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is closely linked to dioxin, but it does outlast them all!
Polyboard is waterproof, decay proof, weatherproof, and sound deadening, abrasion-resistant, chemical resistant, UV-resistant, freeze-thaw resistant, and termite-repellent. Polyboard is virtually everlasting, almost indestructible, (even the Camel will not eat it) yet it is flexible enough for a Lemur to enjoy it as a perch, it is also power-washable and maintenance free.
Polyboard is tougher than wood, in fact tough enough even for a Rhino (see attachment below) withstanding heavy impacts even in our Canadian winter sub-zero temperatures. It is as easy to use as wood, having excellent nail or screw holding ability but no lumber defects whatsoever It never rots, cracks, splits, or delaminates, nor will it rust oxidize or corrode like metal under adverse weather condition. Its solid body completely cuts off moisture that will erode wood and WPC, in marine applications it will-remain intact even completely submerged in seawater.
Polyboard is available in two standard, (Grey and Natural) colors, in standard sheet sizes of 4′x 8‘ in a range of thickness from 1/4″ (6 mm) to 1-1/8″ (28 mm) to suit any specific need. That is why Polyboard has established itself as animal husbandry industry standard for a virtually indestructible eco friendly flooring and sub flooring material.
As you are aware, the disposal of plywood and wood based boards is environmentally hazardous. If burned the toxic glued plywood, medium density fiberboard (MDF) and oriented strand board (OSB) will pollute the air further if land filled, they will poison groundwater. In fact we are all (including the animals we seek to protect) being threatened by potential future global warming disasters – storms, floods, droughts and the rising temperatures that cause polar meltdown, forest fires and heat waves. It is therefore our civic duty to save trees and rain forest to reduce greenhouse gases. Anyone promoting the use of Polyboard will help to save our earth for future generations.Tags: plastic waste, solid body, heavy impacts <BR/>
