Arnco’s Environmentally Friendly ecofil Marks Strong Year

South Gate, Calif.-based Arnco marks the one-year anniversary of its revolutionary product ecofil. Released last year at World of Concrete, ecofil has become a success with many customers. The company has sold over 10 million pounds of ecofil during its first year, equivalent to approximately 40,000 tires filled. 

“ecofil has proven itself as a viable tire flatproofing alternative with the benefits of using 50% less petrochemicals and an inherently less expensive price.  Its performance benefits have also been proven in most OTR tire applications,” said Larry Carapellotti, Arnco president.

Carapellotti continued, “Presently, the prices of oil and petrochemicals have stabilized mainly due to the weak demand caused by the worldwide recession. But we can be sure that as demand increases we will see more spikes in these highly speculative commodities and the price of flatproofing will increase accordingly. That is why we at Arnco are committed to the concept of less oil dependent products which are both good for the planet and more stable economically.”

To thank its customers, Arnco has initiated the One Tote, One Tree program. Through this program, Arnco is planting one tree for every tote of Arnco material sold. Since starting the program, the company has planted almost 13,000 trees.
