how is ReGard™ created?

it all begins with plastic bottles.

 

Putterman Athletics’ supply chain captures post-consumer beverage containers before they reach the landfill.

 

 

waste becomes resource.

 

  • Plastic bottles are ground down into flakes
  • Flakes are converted into pellets 
  • Pellets are extruded into fibers 
  • Fibers are woven into yarn 
  • Yarn is woven into fabric
 

then the magic happens.

 

Products are custom designed by our experienced engineering team into sustainable athletic facility solutions:

  • Athletic Divider Curtains 
  • Field Covers 
  • Gym Floor Covers 
  • Padding 
  • Stadium Seat Covers 
  • Windscreen
