Proplex for the Crafts Industry; a fantastic alternative to corrugated card

Our Proplex Plastic sheeting has recently been used by an arts and crafts supplier with great feedback. The customer supplies organisations such as schools, holiday clubs and Brownies and recommends using 2mm Proplex instead of corrugated card for any number of art and crafts activities. The material cuts really easy and doesnt leave a sharp edge when cut as well as being more durable, flexible and doesn’t go soggy when used with PVA glue!

So next time you are on your next art project, having fun with arts and crafts or run a kids club and need some material to work with, try Proplex!

Proplex plastic sheeting used as the basis of a screen for a quick drying area for timber products

Recently a timber mouldings company approached us for a solution to help build a quick drying room for their products including Handrails, Timber Columns, Skirtings among other items. The requirement was for plastic sheeting that was lightweight and durable to be used as a screen for the quick drying area. The frame work for the drying area was created using wood and then our Proplex plastic sheeting was used to make the screen by being stapled to the inside of the frame. Another important factor was the need for the material to meet LPS1207 which was met by our Proplex FR grade material. The Proplex was perfect for the job and the client was drying their timber materials in no time, job well done.

Materials Appropriate for Screed Protection While Curing During Sub Floor Preparation

We provide floor protection for all applications and in particular it is worth noting some of our products that are great for specifically protecting screed floors while curing during sub floor preparation. Our FR Felt, FR Breathershield and Proplex FR are great products to protect the curing screeding during Sub Floor preparation stages. Lots of flooring contractors do this and will be using products like Ply, Hardboard which are not ideal and need a better alternative. This is where Protec can help and recommend one of the previously mentioned products which have all had great feedback for this application from a series of clients.

Breathershield FR has been specially designed by Protec to provide a solution for newly installed timber where it is essential that the moisture is allowed to escape into the atmosphere while at the same time fulfilling LPS1207 Flame Retardant certification

Handrail/Balustrade Protectors:

A wooden handrail or balustrade on the stairs can be easily knocked and dented or scratched by this traffic so it it important to use foam Handrail/Balustrade Protectors on these items that can often be bespoke made and costly to replace
