EcoTec Surfaces is an environmentally friendly solid surface alternative that is 25% lighter than traditional solid surfaces, and is ideal for installations where weight is an issue, especially for the cruise ship and luxury yacht industry. It is also fire resistant, scratch resistant, and antibacterial. EcoTec Surfaces can be molded into any shape and is available in a wide range of colors.
EcoTec Surfaces contains at least 53% recycled renewable materials, specifically 25% post-consumer recycled glass and 28% bio-renewable soybean resin. EcoTec Surfaces’ recycled glass content includes windshield glass, which is a difficult glass to recycle and rarely used in other recycled glass products.
Our goal with EcoTec Surfaces is to provide an environmentally friendly recycled and renewable alternative to solid surfaces that is lighter, stronger, and greener. EcoTec Surfaces can be used anywhere solid surfaces can be used, from countertops to shower stalls, sink basins to vanities, and more.

February 4, 2013: EcoTec Surfaces Passes Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials Standard ANSI/UL723
The test is performed in a “Steiner Tunnel.” The tunnel is 24-feet long and 2-feet wide. A 24-foot piece of the test material is suspended from the top of the tunnel. An open flame is set from burners below the surface of the material over the first 4-feet and air is used to push the flame down the surface. Measurements are taken regarding the time it takes for the flame to accelerate down the material as well as density of the smoke in the tunnel.
EcoTec's material performed exceptionally well having a flame spread index of less than 25 and a smoke development index of less than 450. These results qualify the material as Class 1, Class A. These are the highest levels attainable for both residential and commercial construction.
