Description: 

ECOPIXEL material is composed of 100% Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) that melts without altering its properties at only 120°C, reducing, therefore, the ecological impact during its transformation. It is a recycled and recyclable material. Due to the low melting temperature and the specific recycling technique, ECOPIXEL does not homogenize the color pigments from the raw waste material, resulting in a distinctive pixelated appearance.

Main results: 

Unique, pixelated objects, recycled and recyclable. Each product which is made of Ecopixel is unique because the pixels melt together randomly in the production process, while the colours do not mix. Shape, size, and color of the pixels can differ in every product. Material versatility: Ecopixel gives the possibility to produce continuous surface, eliminate rims that trap dirt and water, minimizing cleaning and maintenance. Custom solutions can be created in any size, shape, style or color. The translucency of Ecopixel allows atmospheric lighting and lamps. It also offers the possibility to create infinite color options and transform the light projections. Ecopixel is suitable for both indoor and outdoor situations: It resists temperatures from -10 to +50°C.
