Reflectors and the environment

With climate change and the control of plastic waste playing a critical role within our society, Furukawa more than ever understands the importance placed on environmental policies within its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.

Microcellular polyethylene terephthalate (MC-PET) high performance white reflectors are manufactured from a virgin plastic to enable Furukawa engineers to maintain the same levels of absolute total reflectivity values of up to 99.6% throughout production, which in turn improves luminaire efficiency.

However, here at Furukawa we ensure that our environmental policies are strictly followed. Any production losses or non-conforming products manufactured are ground down and used in a variety of PET and blended plastic products from industrial plastic cases to stationary. Similarly, end of life material can be recycled to make new plastic products.
