An Evolution in Sustainable Material

Remade by Midton – Sustainable Materials & Products using Recycled Acrylic

Remade is Midton’s new sustainable product, providing a unique and eco-friendly alternative to virgin acrylic. 

Remade represents localised plastic recycling, and remanufacturing, at its best.

Sculptural forms, to your specifications.

This innovative new material:

  • Maintains material purity
  • Massively reduces the consumption of virgin plastics
  • Provides you with an attractive and viable opportunity to make the sustainable choice

You can find Remade in standardised sheet and block formats in our store. However, if you’re looking for something more specific, we can cast, mould, and machine Remade acrylic into parts, or sculptural forms, to your specification.

Remade Originals

Remade Originals offers diverse collections with a wide range of colours and textures to suit your preferences. Subculture embodies boldness, while Odyssey draws inspiration from the dark, starry skies of Argyll. These collections are crafted using clear acrylic granulate, the most common and abundant type in the industry. The waste processor produces granulate in various sizes, mixed with tinted, opaque PMMA binder, resulting in environmentally friendly products with unique depth and character.

100% recyclable
Up to 70% industrial waste. 

Frequently Asked Questions about Recycled Acrylic

What is recycled acrylic, and how is it different from traditional acrylic?

Recycled acrylic is a sustainable variant of acrylic that is made from post-consumer or post-industrial waste acrylic. It undergoes a careful process of cleaning, sorting, and transforming the waste into usable granulate. Unlike traditional acrylic, which is made from raw materials, recycled acrylic helps reduce waste and conserves resources, making it an eco-friendly choice.

How are products manufactured using recycled acrylic?

The manufacturing process starts by collecting and processing waste acrylic. The sorted waste is then cleaned, shredded, and transformed into granulate. This recycled acrylic granulate is carefully mixed with a tinted, opaque binder of pure PMMA to create a unique blend of color and depth. The resulting material is then moulded or fabricated into various products, such as sheets, panels, or even intricate designs, using cutting-edge techniques and machinery.

What are the environmental benefits of using recycled acrylic?

Using recycled acrylic contributes to significant environmental benefits. By diverting waste acrylic from landfills and repurposing it, we reduce the strain on natural resources and decrease energy consumption. Recycling acrylic also helps mitigate carbon emissions associated with the production of new acrylic. By choosing products made with recycled acrylic, you actively participate in promoting a circular economy and reducing the ecological footprint.

Can recycled acrylic be recycled again at the end of its lifecycle?

Certainly! Recycled acrylic has the remarkable advantage of being fully recyclable at the end of its useful life. Once the product made with recycled acrylic reaches the end of its lifecycle, it can be collected, processed, and transformed into granulate once again. This closed-loop recycling process ensures that recycled acrylic can be reused repeatedly, minimising waste and promoting sustainability throughout its lifecycle.

How does the use of recycled acrylic contribute to a circular economy?

The use of recycled acrylic promotes a circular economy by closing the loop on the material’s lifecycle. Instead of discarding waste acrylic, it is collected, processed, and transformed into new products. This reduces the demand for raw materials and minimises waste, fostering a more sustainable and efficient system where resources are continually reused and recycled.
