OB1 is making the switch to post-consumer recycled packaging

Published: 10 October 2022 - Neil Mead

OB1 is one of the fastest growing sealant and adhesives on the market and we are now leading the way with our move to using post-consumer recycled plastic cartridges with our OB1 products. 

Post-consumer recycled content, often referred to as PCR, is material that is made from the items that consumers recycle every day, like aluminium, cardboard boxes, paper, and plastic bottles. 

Why are we making the switch to PCR? Well, not only does it have a lower carbon footprint, by requiring fewer emissions than virgin plastic, it also helps reduce landfill waste whilst still retaining all the benefits of traditional virgin plastic. A great sustainable option for us and our customers which we will see starting to enter the market later this month.

OB1 can be found in most builder & DIY merchants such as Screwfix, Selco, Brewers, Wickes, Dulux and B&Q trade points.

Want to find out more about this amazing product? Visit the OB1 website or call our sales office on 01226 771600.
