Master LockMaster Lock Company LLC recently achieved a recycled content validation from UL Environment for its Safety padlocks.  UL Environment awarded recycled content validations for several padlock series that contain at least 34% of recycled content, including the A1100/S1100 Anodized Aluminum locks (65%), the 6835/S6835 series Powder Coated Aluminum locks (62%), and the S31, 406 and 410 and 411 series Zenex™thermoplastic locks (at least 34%). 

UL is the leader in third party product testing and certifications, and validates claims for manufacturers representing a wide cross-section of industries.  The UL validation mark indicates that a product has been thoroughly reviewed to meet stringent criteria for the claims they make, which helps purchasers feel confident that product claims are accurate while avoiding greenwashing.

“The UL Environment validation for recycled content of Master Lock’s Safety padlocks is important for many reasons.  It provides peace of mind to the market that we are committed to the sustainability of the environment, remarked Jessica Nelson, Associate Product Manager for Master Lock Company LLC. 

“Our Safety padlocks are manufactured using a high percentage of recycled metal, and the majority of the padlock components and aluminum lock bodies are manufactured using recycled material.  Additionally, Master Lock’s Safety padlocks are manufactured using FDA compliant lubricants, which are safe for use in food processing facilities.”
