Recyclable HPI Insulators
Hendrix Molded Products introduces its Cradle-to-Cradle recycling program for the return and recycling of its HPI Polyethylene Insulators Products constructed using #2 recyclable plastic. Products made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) include milk, juice and water containers, liquid detergent bottles and margarine and yogurt tubs. Hendrix HPI Polyethylene Insulators are suited for bare wire and covered conductors and offer an alternative solution to porcelain insulators, which are susceptible to vandalism and can be problematic when paired with covered overhead conductors. Impervious to impact damage and breakage, HPI Polyethylene Insulators offer longer leakage distance and higher impulse strength. Every HPI Polyethylene Insulator withstands ultraviolet rays and offers greater track resistance due to the proprietary high-density polyethylene material. As part of Hendrix’s new Cradle-to-Cradle program, customers may send used HPI products to a local recycler or ship them back to Hendrix for recycling at no additional cost: Hendrix Wire & Cable, Cradle to Cradle Program, 53 Old Wilton Road, Milford, NH 03055.
