An important life lesson one can learn is that “actions speak louder than words”. While you may have heard that structural recycled plastic lumber by Tangent cuts, drills and secures like traditional wood, this is one instance where the proof is in the pudding, and words just aren’t enough.

Instead of trying to dig through mountains of pudding to find the proof, we thought it might be easier to digest a short video. We’ve also added in a few helpful tips for your project’s success.


More Helpful Tips About Structural Recycled Plastic Lumber by Tangent

  2. Use tooth blades in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations

Benefits of Recycled Plastic Lumber

There are many benefits of using recycled plastic lumber by Tangent as an alternative to traditional wood for your construction projects. As you have just witnessed, our plastic lumber products cut, drill and secure like traditional wood for easy-installation.

Tangent structural plastic lumber is a truly low-maintenance product because it will not rot or degrade due to wet environments, so you won’t need to replace as often as traditional wood. You also don’t need to paint or stain the plastic boards because the color is manufactured throughout the entire product and it has UV inhibitors to prevent fading.

Since plastic lumber is manufactured from post-consumer recycled plastic (like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles), Tangent helps keep millions of pounds of waste out of the landfill each year. Tangent products are best-suited for commercial applications that require structural integrity and are exposed to harsh environments like extreme wind, cold, heat and moisture.
