This week I welcome Brian Gaughan of IntegriCo Composites on the show to discuss how their patented technology is using recycled landfill-bound plastic to create composite railroad ties that far exceed industry standards for high consistency and structural integrity.
Their products are formulated from extremely tough plastic, and the specialized, low-heat process used by IntegriCo preserves the properties of plastic that make it such a strong and versatile raw material.
Their railroad ties provide benefits for all major rail tie applications from the extreme loading conditions of Class I heavy axle load applications to the caustic environment of an industrial chemical processing plant.
On this interview, you hear Brian share the history of their company and how they are diverting and reusing landfill-bound plastic to create extremely durable products. To date, they have reused over 80 million pounds of plastic since 2009!
