Thermoplastics for Transportation Applications
Curbell Plastics, Inc., one of the nation’s premier suppliers of plastic sheet, rod, tube and film released a technical paper entitled, KYDEX® Thermoplastic Sheet for the Transportation Industry. The paper describes the performance characteristics which make KYDEX sheet the material of choice for aircraft, passenger trains, buses, RVs and all terrain vehicles.

Topics in the paper include: durability, impact strength, abrasion and scratch resistance, weight savings; standard and custom colors, variety of textures; design freedom and ease of fabrication; resistance to cleaning chemicals and corrosion and flammability requirements for mass transit and aviation.

Beth Summers, marketing communications project manager for Curbell Plastics, commented on the paper. “The transportation industry has some unique requirements for plastic materials including light weight, outstanding aesthetics, durability, and chemical resistance, as well as the ability to meet tough flammability requirements. KYDEX Thermoplastics offer tremendous value for many different transportation applications including seatbacks, tray tables, wall and ceiling panels, and window shrouds. We think this paper will be a great technical resource for designers of mass transportation equipment, aircraft, and specialty vehicles.”

Curbell supplies plastic sheet, rod, tube and film materials as well as adhesives and fabricated plastic parts to thousands of commercial businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and government agencies while offering innovative services, creative problem solving and next-day delivery.
