Recyclable products are characterized by the fact that they can be single-variety recycled and that recycling is possible at a similar quality level.
The more purely a material can be reclaimed or processed, the greater the possibilities for high-quality recycling and thus the greater the range of applications. A prerequisite for recycling, meaning the shredding and processing of building products, is therefore the use of detachable joints of different material groups more specifically those whose separation is simple and less energy-intensive, or also single-material solutions. Difficult to detach adhesive joints without solvent solubility as well as the use of composite materials are problematic. The use of assembly foams and wet joining techniques when installing the products also make it difficult to separate the materials without leaving residues.
