Since it was founded in 1983, Vycom, a division of The AZEK Company, has been a manufacturer of market-leading brands of innovative plastic solutions. Our products are designed for a variety of applications across many industries with the goal to create a better environment while using the highest quality materials.
Why should you choose one of Vycom’s family of products? Our sustainable products are helping create a more eco-friendly future. By choosing durable materials, we create longer-lasting products compared to wood, metal, and other traditional materials. In time, wood de-laminates and needs painting. Also, metal will rust after being exposed to outdoor elements. Fortunately, our material are designed to sustain both indoor and outdoor elements.
How We Limit VOC Emission
Vycom is proud in our efforts to limit our volatile organic compound (VOC) emission, which are hazardous to people’s health. For starters, our products require little to no maintenance or cleaning with harsh chemicals that create VOC emission. Some common products that cause VOC emission are paints, wood preservatives, aerosol sprays, pesticide, and more.
With this in mind, our family of products are guaranteed to be made with the highest quality of material that is built with durability in mind. This means that our products don’t require using cleaning agents, pesticides, or paint in order to maintain their aesthetics and integrity. On the other hand, using metal for outdoor applications requires a lot of maintenance.
Why VOC Emission is Harmful
VOC emission may cause adverse short-term and long-term health issues. According to the EPA, some effects that VOC emission may cause include an allergic skin reaction, conjunctival irritation, nose and throat discomfort and more.
VOC emission indoors can be up to ten times as much as outdoors, which directly affects a person’s air quality. Moreover, more exposure for longer periods of time to VOC emission may increase health risks.
Also, all of our products are recyclable once their product life ends. In fact, recycled polymers are significantly cheaper than virgin materials. It is just one of the many “green initiatives” we’ve enacted as a company.
Vycom is proud to offer American-made products. All of our products are made in our state-of-the-art factory in Scranton, Pennsylvania. As a part of The AZEK Company, which has 4 locations and over 800 team members, our sustainable development process includes operating efficiently in order to cut out waste.
Vycom is one of the industry leaders of manufacturing premium, branded, low maintenance building products, including PVC products. In addition, our family of products provide innovative solutions designed for a variety of applications in many different industries. For instance, our product materials are built for graphic & display, fire safe, playground & recreational, food processing, chemical & corrosion resistant, display & outdoor cabinetry, and marine & outdoor usage.
It’s our holistic approach that we apply to every part of our company that makes Vycom a sustainable innovative solutions company.
