Hendrix Wire & Cable, a provider of overhead and underground power distribution products based in Milford, N.H., has announced its Cradle-to-Cradle recycling program for the return and recycling of the company's HPI polyethylene insulators products.
Hendrix's line of HPI Insulators are made from high-density polyethylene, a No. 2 recyclable plastic that can be reconstructed for reuse when its product life cycle has ended.
As part of Hendrix's Cradle-to-Cradle program, customers are encouraged to dispose of insulators by sending any used HPI products to a local recycler, or by shipping them back to Hendrix for recycling at no additional cost.
Hendrix HPI Polyethylene Insulators are suited for both bare wire and covered conductors and offer an alternative solution to porcelain insulators. According to the company, HPI Polyethylene Insulators offer longer leakage distance and higher impulse strength. Additionally, the insulators accept any conductor or tie and can be used interchangeably with porcelain insulators.
