Alkemi polyester


Renewed Materials, Inc. was founded by architect and renowned designer Demir Hamami with the objective to provide sophisticated recycled surfaces to the sustainable design community. With a focus on social and environmental responsibility, Hamami has honed his vision to provide a variety of uniquely beautiful surfacing solutions produced directly from salvaged waste. Award winning ALKEMI-polyester is a recycled surface material composed of post-industrial scrap waste (34% by weight or 60% by volume). Made from fine flake aluminum milling scrap, which commonly burns up as a heavy smoke pollutant when exposed to conventional aluminum recycling, ALKEMI-polyester leaves no hazardous footprint. Available in a variety of designer colors and surface aesthetics as classic and honed, it may be fabricated and installed using standard solid surface fabrication methods.
