Springfield Plastics is the only U.S. manufacturer certified to use only 100% virgin resin in the manufacturing of all drainage pipe and accessories, thereby providing peace-of-mind through the highest quality and consistency available in today's drainage market.

Standard setting organizations, such as ASTM and USDA-NRCS, have required the use of virgin resin materials for many years. However, many drainage pipe companies continue to use recycled materials in their products to reduce their costs.

Regulators have always been concerned with the wide variability of the physical properties in recycled materials and how they affect the long-term performance of drainage pipe. The variability in the materials can lead to stress cracking, excessive deflection, reduced impact strengths and uneven wall distributions. If any of these things occur, the farmer/landowner could be looking at system failure.
