Our SelectForce® Manufacturing Process

There are two manufacturing processes that produce SelectForce® by Bedford Technology. Each process yields unique product characteristics to fit a wide variety of applications. The first is HardTool which creates a strong and durable product. The second is Continuous Extrusion which creates lumber made from recycled plastic with a premium lumber appearance and feel. This product line is great for projects requiring various lengths and unique profiles.

Raw Material

We take in HDPE recycled plastic from postindustrial and post-consumer waste. Items found in these types of recycled waste include milk jugs and juice bottles; butter and yogurt tubs; shampoo bottles; industrial containers; agricultural (water) tanks; and motor oil bottles.

process 2

Prepare for Extrusion

After the bales of recycled material are received, we break down the material through our unique process filtering out paper labels and other unwanted items from the mix.

Extrusion Processes

SelectForce® goes through our Continuous Extrusion process for our furniture-grade line and our Hard Tool (XD molded) process is for more cost-effective, structural applications. stabilizers, colorant, and strengtheners (like fiberglass strand) are added during each process so the end-product contains consistent color and texture throughout the entire length of the plastic lumber.
