Alusid Launches a Recycled Commercial Tile Line Named Sequel
It started with a research project between David Binns and Alasdair Bremner at the University of Central Lancashire: investigating new ways to use waste for large-scale surfacing. Now, after co-founding Alusid, the ceramics professor and the PhD in refractory concrete, respectively, are launching their first commercial tile range based on the innovative recycled material they invented. Dubbed Sequel, it’s offered in three sizes and colors in a material made from 98 percent recycled glass, ceramic, and mineral waste, all combined by sintering, a process that utilizes heat and compression. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, the tile is also completely recyclable itself. The line is available directly to the trade for the first time through architectural tile specialist Parkside.
