ICON TEJA is a manufacturer of roofing tiles based in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. All our products are manufactured using carefully separated recycled polymers and fine screened silica sand. We are dedicated to recycling and to continual development of new technologies and materials.
“With the advent of new technologies and development of polymer recycling industry, we were able to create an innovative polymer-sand material – Polysand™, which is the base of all our products.”
Polysand™ is an innovative material of the 21st century. The first attempt to use polymer as a connecting link in building products was made back in the 90s. The rapidly evolving plastic industry led to the development of new composite materials. After the successful attempt to use polymer instead of cement, the first polymer-sand based tiles were introduced to the market. Today, Polysand Corp. has significantly improved the manufacturing process of this material and continues to develop it further.
Polysand™ is a mixture of recycled plastic and screened fine silica sand. When mixed together with high quality pigment and protective additives this material is almost unbreakable and can withstand severe weather conditions and harsh environments.
