Consequently, Palram is committed to always being at the forefront of technology. Palram is aware of the challenges that come with manufacturing and often needs fast or adjustable solutions to meet a range of circumstances that each project’s environment might subject to installation and longevity of products. Therefore, through Palram’s implementation of technology throughout its operations, it can identify customers’ needs and communicate with them to come up with the most effective and affordable solutions for its clients. These technologies include Palram Metal Match PC Profile Technology™ which provides fast, economical custom-matching for any metal corrugations. Palram also has SolarSmart™ which controls the light transmittance, indoor heat, and radiation of its products, as well as HYG Technology™ which is used as an active antimicrobial protection across its applications. Additionally, a crucial technology for Palram is Palram BioBase™ which is part of the company’s sustainability initiative to produce plastics that are derived from renewable resources. All of these solutions are often used in large-scale projects that require unique solutions to address the specific needs of every project’s design requirement, engineering constraints, as well as logistical issues. Therefore, we can see that throughout Palram’s service offers and manufacturing options, they have produced a range of products and services that are designed to ensure customer satisfaction and show the leading role that Palram plays across the polycarbonate and PVC industry.  

Furthermore, a crucial step of Palram’s operations is working towards a more sustainable future. As a manufacturer of plastic-based solutions, Palram has been working to find solutions that develop both the company and the industry towards a greener, cleaner world for future generations. Therefore, Palram is a committed member of VinylPlus, a voluntary sustainable development program that is part of the European PVC industry. Members of this program guarantee that its products are recyclable and maintain a green production process. Additionally, it ensures that all PVC products are produced using regrind vinyl, all in an effort towards a path of carbon-plastic neutrality across the industry.  

It is working to reduce waste through closed-loop manufacturing, as the production of its plastic sheet plants operate with an internal recycling process where scraps and ground-up and repurposed plastics are reused. Therefore, its manufacturing process produces less than 1% waste, and recycles more than 13,000 tons of polycarbonate and PVC every year. Additionally, it produces climate-friendly thermoplastic sheets – which are constructed by replacing fossil fuel-based materials with bio-based feedstock which moves the company’s whole manufacturing process towards a greener future. The production process of durable end-products on recycled materials contributes to the efficient use of resources and increases the material value in a world that is constantly looking for new ways to be more sustainable.  

In a further movement towards sustainability across the industry, Palram has continued to produce innovative materials including thermoplastic sheets to become more climate-friendly, whilst also implementing energy-efficient daylight building products that comply with green building regulations. Consequently, as part of its commitment to environmental and energy sustainability, Palram ensures that it complies with international standards and regulations across the entire company. Overall, by contributing toward facilitating more sustainable practices and solutions for buildings on a global scale using sustainable resources, it plays a crucial role in the construction of energy-efficient buildings which are building the future for sustainability within the construction industry.  

Palram is such a giant company that is exemplifying how focusing on sustainability whilst providing essential solutions to meet its customer’s need is possible, especially as the demand for polycarbonate and PVC use across industries is increasing. Therefore, the company serves as a crucial single resource for polycarbonate, PVC and acrylic sheets in all their forms across the industry, which has only expanded over the last 60 years to place them as a key player across vast industries from its humble beginnings in Israel.
