Yes, MastaPlastas are a genuinely eco-friendly product – pollution is definitely not on our agenda.
Our adhesive is incredibly strong – but it is also environmentally friendly, being water-based and solvent-free. Some 99% of solvents used in the production of our MastaHide fabric is recycled. MastaPlasta is proud to be approved by Peta, and MastaHide is a true deluxe alternative to real leather – you will not find any formaldehyde or volatile organic compounds here. Although it is soft, supple with all the qualities of luxury leather, it is also stain-resistant, so no necessary harsh cleansers are needed. Our MastaPlastas are sun-resistant, mould-resistant, extremely tough yet breathable and extremely soft.
Our whole production process is set up to be as environmentally friendly as possible. MastaPlastas are designed and made in the UK, using UK-made raw materials as far as possible. Our packaging is of course recyclable, and as much as possible is itself made from recycled products. Our working practices are first-rate – the two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise that we have picked up along the way can vouch for that.
There are more than half a million MastaPlastas shoring up damaged products in all corners of the world, from Dubai to Alaska, from Israel to Ireland, from Singapore to Switzerland; in living rooms, hotels, restaurants, clinics, schools, universities, beauty salons, trucks, churches, marinas, kennels… And that means hundreds of thousands of products given extended lives and saved from our clogged-up landfills. In the UK alone, 800,000 tonnes of “good” furniture ends up in landfills every year. Together we can change that.
