Specialty materials are generally intended for a specific purpose and may come with a particular surface finish or an internal modification. We stock a large range of these materials and can also machine them to your requirements. Applications for specialty materials cover food cutting boards, play grounds, pleasure boat parts, signage boards, privacy partitions, light-weight panels for automotive, skate board ramps and much more! Please contact us for further technical information and availability.
Densetec™ Cutting Board is engineered for durability, low maintenance and safety. Its textured, matte surface safely holds food in place without slipping. The bright "natural" colour is favoured for its sanitary look. By colour coding the food to the colour of the Densetec™ Cutting Board such as blue for fish, red for red meat, yellow for poultry, etc., the risk of spreading micro-organisms is greatly diminished.
Densetec™ Playground Board is making a big splash in the playground industry. The variety of bright contrasting colours make it perfectly suited to this environment where high impact colours are required. Because the colour is embedded in the sheet, it never needs painting. Especially with the rigors of child play on the equipment this material must be tough! It generally lasts much longer than wood.
Densetec™ Sign Board is manufactured by extruding one colour on the inside and a contrasting colour on the outside. The layers are combined while the material is still molten. The result is a superior homogenous sheet that is guaranteed not to delaminate, crack or chip. The durable textured finish resists scratches and marring. The product is UV stabilized to resist deterioration in harsh outdoor environments, making it the perfect signage material.
Densetec™ Marine Board is specially formulated to withstand the rigors of harsh outdoor marine environments. It is UV-stabilised to resist damage and retain its beauty, even after years of direct sunlight. Increasingly, Densetec™ Marine Board is replacing wood and laminates in boating applications.
Densetec™ Post Industrial Light Weight is a utility grade sheet material that is approximately 20% lighter than standard weight HD-PE sheet. The material employs a foamed core capped with full weight skin to achieve weight reduction. A thickness of 12mm weighs only 0.69g/cm3 and absorbs virtually no moisture.
Densetec™ Pipe Grade is a higher molecular weight material than standard HD-PE. The material displays improved performance in a variety of piping applications. UV stabilised and ideal for use in outdoor applications. Densetec™ HD-PE Pipe Grade can be used in a variety of applications including manhole lids and bottoms, pipe reducers, trenches, sumps, pipe flanges, pipe end caps, tanks, milled flange adapters and lifting lugs.
Need more slip from your current UHMWPE sheet? The unique bubble surface of Rocket Plate™ creates point contact that considerably lowers the coefficient of friction. Rocket Plate™ can be used anywhere where you have to move large flat surfaced objects such as panels and boxes or under conveyor belts.
Shot-Blocker™ is resistant to projectiles, ricochet, heat and fire. It is a self extinguishing thermoset composite that will not catch fire or give off toxic smoke when exposed to intense heat, making it ideal for all types of civilian and military/defence applications. Shot-Blocker™ can be manufactured in five levels of bullet resistance depending on the weapon threat and security function. Meets UL-752 standards.
This tough, non-splintering surface is wear resistant, abrasion resistant, and moisture resistant and tailored specifically for skate parks. The low thermal expansion and contraction of SkatePlate 3000™ handles extreme changes in temperature and provides an excellent wear resistance for long life, in either indoor or outdoor environments. The material has a special matt surface texture engineered for skate boarding requirements.
