We have a new product available in our mix: Foamlite P Polypropylene. This is a lightweight plastic that offers 30% weight savings over other materials commonly used in similar applications which include everything from tank cladding, washdown areas, cargo crates among many others. Additional benefits to the product include excellent chemical resistance, UV and moisture resistance. The product is weldable and adhesives can be used (this is not the case for all plastics). One of the better rules of thumb for Foamlite is to use it as a replacement for wood, where wood’s deficiencies (rot, moisture absorption, cracking) are unacceptable.
Important to know as well is this is a European manufactured product meaning it is manufactured under metric system measurements not the imperial system like most North American made plastics. The sheet is available in thicknesses from 6mm (approximately 1/4″) to 21mm (approximately 7/8″) and in one size only that is 2000mm x 3048mm. We are not stocking this product at our locations but bringing it in from our supplier as necessary, therefore a 1-2 week delivery is typical. Lastly, Foamlite is available in three colors: black, grey, and white only.
