Dulux Powder Coatings collaborate with Transmutation to develop a sustainable product solution.

3 May 2024


Dulux Powder Coatings have collaborated with South Australian recycling business, Transmutation to sustainably recycle powder waste from our factories.


Transmutation’s vision is to educate customers to the concepts of reduce, reuse, and recycle by only selling and manufacturing items that are made from recycled materials, aligning perfectly with Dulux Powder Coatings’ sustainability goals.


Using powder waste, Transmutation have found a way to turn this into plastic feedstock that can be used to displace virgin plastic in products. This is known as PostPrime Plastic™ pellet feedstock and the first product produced using this material is a Bar Chair.


What is a Bar Chair?


PostPrime Plastic™ Bar Chairs are used to support reinforcing bar / mesh when placing concrete. Additionally, bar chairs help to ensure the correct concrete cover is poured as per design specifications.


Why PostPrime™ Bar Chairs?


In addition to providing a sustainable solution to ordinary Bar Chairs, Transmutations’s PostPrime Plastic™ Bar Chairs are GECA certified. The GECA certification indicates that a product has been assessed from a whole of life perspective as an environmentally preferable product. In addition, this product provides the following benefits:
