07 Sep No Other Flat Sheet Panel Stacks Up Like Plaspanel
A long list of benefits and wide variety of applications makes new Plaspanel® a superior alternative to other flat sheet products. Made from recycled plastic waste in high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Plaspanel is strong yet lightweight and easy to work with.
Each panel is a standard 2440 mm x 1220 mm and comes in a range of thicknesses from 9 mm to 32 mm. “Plaspanel’s workability would be one of its major benefits,” Gordon Long, Manager of Builda Panels believes. “Using standard tools you can cut it, drill it and route it – there’s no rough edges – just a clean, smooth finish. You can also heat weld it for quick, seamless fabrication on or off-site.”
The waterproof properties of Plaspanel make it ideal for use in moist environments. “You can put Plaspanel in direct contact with the ground and it won’t rot or place it onto a concrete slab and it won’t swell like other flat sheet products,” Long says.
This makes it particularly useful for marine and bathroom applications as Plaspanel will not delaminate, or rust and as the colour penetrates the entire board there is no need for maintenance. Cleaning is severely reduced as well as the smooth non-stick surface resists mould and bacteria growth and is easy to clean.
Bacteria resistant qualities make Plaspanel ideal for agricultural applications where it can be used in produce bins, kennels, stables, horse studs and breeding pens to reduce the risk of contamination and disease.
Councils, manufacturing, materials handling, furniture, agricultural and construction industries will all save on labour, maintenance and repair costs with Plaspanel. And with all off-cuts from these fully recycled plastic panels also recyclable – there’s an environmental saving as well.
