Understanding the role of CertainTeed Foundations in meeting Green Building Standards
Form-A-Drain lineals are manufactured from 100% pre- and post-consumer PVC, including
common post-consumer containers such as shampoo bottles. The overall pre- and post-consumer
recycled content of Form-A-Drain system components is 92%.
CertainTeed diverts millions of pounds/year of PVC from landfills by recycling this
material into our product formulation for Form-A-Drain.
In addition to landfill waste reduction, the use of recycled PVC in our product
reduces the release of CO2 from the extraction and processing of raw materials that
are used to create virgin PVC.
