PPB Ltd has become a UK stockist of POLYCASA acrylic sheets made from manufacturer 3A Composite. The new substrates to the PPB industrial plastics portfolio include the AKRYLON®, CRYLON® XT and CRYLUX® CAST acrylics ranges.
AKRYLON® and CRYLON® XT acrylics are a range of cost effective extruded acrylic sheets. Unlike some cast acrylic products, they do not vary in thickness and are manufactured to very tight tolerances.
CRYLUX® Cast acrylic is a range of high quality cast acrylic sheets. As well as traditional clear sheet, CRYLUX® cast acrylic is available in a full range of colours, tints and clear blocks from 40mm to 100mm thick. A bespoke colour matching service is also available. Cast acrylic, unlike extruded acrylic, provides a greater thermal stability and a high resistance when exposed to solvents, says the company.
The ranges are suitable for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor applications and are easy to handle, can be thermoformed, and fabricated into attractive designs for all retail, POS, furniture, shop fitting or display use.
To support these new products, PPB appointed Darren Raistrick as product manager for plastics in 2015. Darren joined PPB from PaperlinX and has much experience in the industrial plastics market.
Richard Proctor, Managing Director for PPB, said: “We are delighted to be stocking the new Polycasa range. We are already looking at expanding the range, and 2017 will see the addition of new colours to the CRYLUX range. Our in-house conversion facility including our Schelling Saw and Cauhe Guillotine means we can convert stock sizes to bespoke requirements with a tolerance of + or – 0.5mm accuracy. Many of our clients are using this facility to cut sheets to the final job size required.”
