Sustainable Manufacturing

Victaulic has been an innovator in manufacturing throughout its history – our global lean processes reduce waste and increase efficiency. Our products are manufactured using recycled and natural elements – fire, water, metal and sand. We manufacture close to the markets we serve to provide superior product delivery as well as conserve our natural resources and reduce transportation related pollution.

Victaulic prevents 70 tons of sand per week from reaching landfills

6–10 million tons of sand are used worldwide in the foundry manufacturing process each year. At Victaulic, 100% of the sand used in our foundries is reclaimed, recycled or given beneficial disposal. Our sand reclamation efforts allow us to recycle 2,496 tons of sand each year in the U.S. alone.

Each week Victaulic prevents 70 tons of sand from being dumped into landfills in the U.S. – the equivalent of four dump truck loads.

Through dip coating processes Victaulic reduces VOCs in the atmosphere by 2/3

Conventional spray painting has only a 40% transfer efficiency rate. That means 50–60% of the paint is wasted and a high percentage of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are released into the atmosphere. Dip coating results in 0% waste and fewer VOCs.

More than 75% of all Victaulic couplings and fittings are dip coated.
