The holiday season is not always the best time to be spreading the word about “saving the trees”, but the other 364 days of the year, it is a selling point that most of us consider when purchasing products for our home, business or family. With that in mind, allow us to expand on a great alternative to wood in many applications…Recycled HDPE Plastic Lumber!

This blog will cover Hard Tool (molded) recycled plastic lumber products and applications in the BARFORCE® brand.
BARFORCE® Hard Tool recycled plastic lumber is an ultra-strong, durable product utilizing fiberglass strands in the plastic makeup, which encapsulate fiberglass reinforced rods to increase rigidity. This added rigidity creates characteristics suited for many structural applications where a wider span, dimensional stability, increased strength or stiffness is required. BARFORCE® Hard Tool HDPE plastic lumber is formed in molds in various traditional lumber profile sizes. (See our Hard Tool (Molded) process for more details on the actual process) This product is a coarse, rigid and rough textured material in appearance and feel. This makes it great for projects requiring particular lumber profile sizing and added strength characteristics over traditional Continuous Extruded products.
