NexCycle is a division of the largest supplier of cullet to the glass container/bottle industry. Cullet offers many advantages over other raw materials used in container manufacturing. Its lower melting point requires less energy, prolongs furnace life, increases throughput, and can reduce emissions.

Use of cullet by fiberglass manufacturers continues to rise each year. Cullet’s advantages include energy savings, prolonged furnace life and higher melting capacity. Industry standards for product quality and consistency are extremely high. NexCycle is an integral source of supply to Fiberglass manufacturers.

NexCycle is a major supplier into the Bead industry’s demand for cullet. Cullet offers a more cost-effective alternative to virgin glass in bead manufacturing. Once the cullet has been melted into rounded glass pellets, the resulting beads are sold for use in reflective paints for highway striping, as well as for use in peening and cleaning metals.

Nexcylce sells ground glass to the abrasive industry under the name “WhiteBlast.” Glass is an ideal abrasive since it is competitively priced, leaves good profiles, has high performance results, and provides superior worker safety, Glass has no free silica and will not cause silicosis.
