General

Where specific applications, whether it be extreme concentration of UV or florescent lighting then ensure you advise our technical department to develop a product specifically tailored to meet the required conditions.

Accelerated Weather Testing

It must be noted that accelerated weathering is not the same as natural outdoor weathering but does provide a prediction of colour performance.

Results indicate the following:

  • 5 years Champagne/White/Grey (minimal change)
  • 2 years Green (minimal change)
  • 2 years Black (significant change)

Acoustics

Plaspanel 25 mm thick panels have an S.T.C. rating of 31 dB which is excellent as a sound isolator. Plaspanel performs well in preventing sound from travelling from one source to the other.

  • Applications:
  • Audio Speaker Boxes
  • Engine Enclosures
  • Machinery Noise Dampeners
  • Roadside Barriers S.T.C. Rating

The higher the S.T.C. rating the better material performs as a sound isolator. A comparison of common materials is as follows:

Material
Transmission
Loss dB
Timber, Fir
25 mm
21
Plywood
25 mm
23
Gypsum Board
12 mm
17
Concrete Block, Hollow Core
100 mm
30
Brick

Plaspanel reflects sound rather than absorbing sound, showing similar characteristics as brick and concrete.
