Pawling and Alpar to Offer Sustainable Wall Protection Solutions to Construction Industry

Pawling, a supplier of athletic flooring, entrance matting, wall protection, traffic and parking safety solutions, has announced that it has purchased Alpar Architectural Products. Alpar manufactures renewable and bio-based alternative products to be used for glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) wall protection.

The commitment of Pawling towards sustainability is shown through the acquisition of Minnesota-based Alpar Architectural Products. Pawling offers the construction industry with eco-friendly alternatives to PVC products.

Greg Holen, Pawling’s General Manager stated that the objective of the company is to supply an alternative eco-friendly product to PVC and also raise the industry to a new height. The special license has been obtained by the company for deTerra bio-based polymer through the purchase of Alpar Architectural. This polymer can be used in the specialty building products industry, he added.

Currently, the only material that meets the IgCC and USDA standards is DeTerra bio-based polymer, which can be used in bio-based products. This polymer is made using more than 90% of rapidly-renewable materials and is free from petroleum. When fire tests are conducted, the polymer surpasses the ABS, PETG and PVC performances with no use of halogenated fire retardants.

As the strengths of Alpar Architectural and Pawling are combined, they will offer a complete range of access to customers for high-quality sustainable wall protection solutions.
