Milford, N.H. - 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. Familiar household products that are made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) are items such as milk, juice or water containers, liquid detergent bottles as well as margarine and yogurt tubs.
Hendrix has developed polyethylene insulators that not only address the growing concern to minimize our environmental impact, but also as a means of minimizing costs to customers as an incentive to do so. Unlike traditional porcelain insulators, Hendrix's line of HPI Insulators are made from High Density Polyethylene, a #2 recyclable plastic that can be reconstructed for reuse when its product life cycle has ended. As part of Hendrix's new Cradle-to-Cradle program, customers are encouraged to dispose of insulators by sending any used HPI products to a local recycler, or by simply shipping them back to Hendrix for recycling - at no additional cost. To take advantage of the new Cradle-to-Cradle recycling program, simply ship any used HPI Insulators Products to the following address: Hendrix Wire & Cable, Cradle to Cradle Program, 53 Old Wilton Road, Milford, NH 03055-0326.
Hendrix HPI Polyethylene Insulators are suited for both 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. Additionally, every HPI Polyethylene Insulator easily withstands ultraviolet rays and offers greater track resistance due to the proprietary high-density polyethylene material.
With the ability to resist wear and tear, including chipping, cracking or breaking, Hendrix HPI Polyethylene Insulators have an increased lifespan over competitor's products. Additionally, the insulators accept any conductor or tie and can be used interchangeably with porcelain insulators.
The Hendrix Molded Products division has been offering innovative product solutions to the electric utility industry for over 40 years. For more information about the Polyethylene Insulators and other products and service solutions from Hendrix, please visit www.hendrix-wc.com.
