Tubelite now manufactures all of its architectural extruded aluminum products (including storefront, curtain wall, entrance, and daylight control) with EcoLuminum, a high-recycled-content aluminum billet composition developed with environmentally friendly finishes. EcoLuminum requires 95% less energy to produce than standard, nonrecycled billet, and its anodized finish sends 90% less waste to landfills than traditional caustic-etch anodizing. Tubelite formulated EcoLuminum’s standard billet composition contains a minimum of 80% reclaimed aluminum, with a post-consumer content average of 34%. Paint finishes are also applied and controlled in an environmentally effective manner.
