Cromar wins innovation prize

Published:  02 January, 2019

Leadax, a product by Cromar Building Supplies, has been awarded the Veluwse innovation prize of 2018.

The prize is awarded to innovative products in the manufacturing, food, energy or environmental technology industries.

Leadax is made from recycled plastic moulded onto aluminium mesh. It looks like lead and is as malleable and pliable as lead.

Roeland van Delden, Director of Leadax, said: “What makes Leadax unique is that it has the stability, impact resilience and pliability of lead. It also has the same look and feel as lead.

“But, it’s cheaper, non-toxic, 70% lighter and safer and easier for workers to work with.

“The makers of Leadax have come up with a lead alternative that is better than the original.”
