Keeping it safe in glass manufacturing plants with HDPE

Handling glass panels in manufacturing facilities can be a challenge
with the risk of the panels hitting each other and causing injury to workers.

Allplastics Engineering addresses this hazard by offering Evolution
Windows custom made black, high density polyethylene panels with CNC routed grooves.
Not only do the polyethylene panels eliminate the problem of the glass sheets
hitting each other, but they also promote the sliding of glass panels in and
out of storage – safely.

These grooved panels can also be used in acrylic and polycarbonate sheet

HDPE has exceptional sliding properties, good chemical resistance and
easy machinability; is lightweight and cost effective; is available in various
grades suitable to specific conditions and applications; and is recyclable.
Allplastics can also offer recycled graded if required.

Key benefits of the polyethylene panels include low weight; excellent
chemical resistance; weldability; very high surface release properties; does
not absorb water; is non-toxic and self-lubricating; and has very low
coefficient of friction and excellent dampening characteristics.

Applications include food grade cutting boards (natural); parts
subjected to high impact stresses; flow promotion; conveyor parts subject to
wear and requiring low friction; components in touch with foodstuffs; timber
replacement; pads for transport and infrastructure; wear strips; agriculture –
feeding troughs and feed bins; flanged bushes for marine environments; non-stick
rollers; and custom tanks.
