FO2

Recycled Content PE Foam - 60% RC minimum

rectangular

This RC (Recycled Content) PE foam guarantees a minimum of 60% recycled resin content while maintaining the usual benefits and qualities of standard PE foam. This foam is only offered in black, but it has the same customizable size options as standard foam. This option is about 15% more expensive than FO1.

These foams are classified as #4 LDPE material and can be recycled under certain conditions at either a dedicated LDPE recycling facility or at a Sealed Air product return location. In order to return for recycling, the foam must be free of tape, glue, labels or any foreign materials. It’s more than likely that your foam insert will be a glued foam, in which case it will not be recyclable. However, these foams are still a more sustainable option considering recycled content is used in production.

Not included in the kit: An MRC (Maximum Recycled Content) PE foam is also available from this supplier. It’s guaranteed to be created from 100% recycled resin content while providing the usual benefits and qualities of standard PE foam. This foam is only offered in black, but does have customizable size options. It’s equivalent in cost to FO2.
