Fixing and Installation

Plaspanel multi-purpose panels can be drilled, routed or sawn with standard wood working tools. Consideration should be given to thermal movement of the panel during installation as the panel can expand approximately ¼ inch along the 96 inch dimension over a temperature change of 100°F. Screw holes should be drilled oversized to allow for movement. The greater the hole diameter, provided the panel is still fastened securely, the better the installation. Satisfactory adhesive bonds can not generally be achieved with panels made from polyethylene (PE).

Material Safety Data

All work with these panels should be carried out in such a way as to minimize the generation of shavings and fines. Excessive levels of shavings and fines may present a slippage hazard on hard surfaces. Safety glasses and a replaceable filter or disposable half face respirator should be worn when machining.

Storage

Keep panels away from sources of heat, flame or sparks, and stored flat and fully supported.

Painting

Plaspanel can not be painted with conventional paint systems.

Recycling

The manufacturing process not only produces panels from plastic waste but the panels can themselves be recycled. Off-cuts and general waste material should be placed in containers separate from other waste for recycling.

UV Stabilization of Plaspanel

Plaspanel (PE) is UV stabilised and manufactured to provide mechanical strength and colour consistency.

UV Stabilization of Plaspanel

Plaspanel (PE) is UV stabilised and manufactured to provide mechanical strength and colour consistency.

Mechanical Strength

Plaspanel is designed to produce a long-term mechanical life and 10 years plus would be a reasonable expectation.

Colour

Our colour base is selected to provide minimum degradation through a large range of external and internal applications. Over a period of time some light coloured surface degradation will develop depending on the severity of the environment. It must be noted that darker colours will provide the highest contrast ratio with the lighter colours the least.
