Custom sheet and rolls

Custom sheet and rolls

One of the many advantages that set FedPlast apart from our competitors is that we do our best to accommodate our clients: We Appreciate a complex short custom run just as much as we do a simple standard long one.
We work very hard -today as we did for the past 40 years- on providing our clients with a wide variety of products, at attractive prices without compromising on quality.

This page presents most of the products and services Fedplast can provide to you.

Materials


HIPS (High Density PolyStyrene)

HIPS is a fairly rigid, relatively inexpensive polymer. It is easy to work with, and It has many uses, including outdoor signage, point of purchase displays (POP), printing, thermoformed applications and more. HIPS is available matt and in high gloss finishes (through co-extrusion). HIPS in it’s natural form is translucent, but it can be matched and colored in virtually any shade.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

ABS is a modified form of styrene. It is much more rigid, and is the product of choice for applications where toughness is required. It is commonly used in permanent displays, thermoforming, signs, machine guards, and more. ABS is naturally glossy, although dull grades are available as well.

HDPE (High Density PolyEthylene)

HDPE is extremely resilient and impact resistant. it is also resistant to extremely low temperatures (whereas other plastics like styrene become very brittle) and it is impervious to many chemicals and corrosives,it’s low-moisture absorbent and it’s non-toxic. Often used in liners, containers, trays, liquid and chemicals storage and tanks, hockey arenas, agricultural applications and many more.

LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)

LDPE is very resistant to chemicals, similarly to HDPE,, but it has a much lower density and it is much more flexible and resilient. Often used in packaging, trays, and other parts that need to be soft and pliable.

HMWPE (High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene)

HMWPE performs well under the most rigorous conditions of wear and environment . It has the highest known impact strength of any thermoplastic currently available. It has a very low coefficient of friction and extremely low moisture absorption. It is easily machined, sawed, milled, turned, planed, drilled or punched. Often used in wear surfaces, impact surfaces, liners,, non-stick surfaces. HMWPE offers a diversity of usage in tough applications in a wide range of industries.

PP (PolyPropylene)

Polypropylene is a relatively inexpensive, yet very versatile plastic. It has a high resistance to chemicals and acids, like HDPE, but it has a higher melting point, making it a better choice for certain applications: reusable containers made of PP, for example, are dishwasher safe, while containers made out of HDPE will most likely deform. PP also has a great resistance to fatigue, making it a good choice for parts that require a living hinge, like lids, packaging and more.

TPO (ThermoPlastic Olefin)

TPO is an oleofin based elastomer, similar in properties to PE and PP in terms of chemical resistance, but wiith a much higher content of rubber and other compounds which make it much more flexible and elastic. TPO is an ideal choice for gaskets, seals, roofing membranes, stamping and die cut applications. TPO is thermoformable and easy to pigment.

Additives

Additives are other “ingredients” we can add to our material to improve their performance, appearance or qualities. Fedplast has amassed a lot of experience and know-how regarding additives, and we can help you find what solution will work for your application, for the lowest cost possible.

UV Stabilizers

For chemical modification enhancing a polymer resistance to UV LIght. Commonly used in HIPS, ABS, PE, and PP when destined for outdoor use, such additives, depending on selection, will prevent yellowing as well as protect the polymer from degradation due to UV light exposure. This additive is commonly used in HIPS when destined for outdoor use.

Antistatic agents

By virtue of incompatibility with the target resin, these products migrate to the surface of the product, depositing a fine (and invisible) layer, facilitating dissipation of static charges. Used in products where static buildup is to be prevented, such as electronic packaging media.

Slip Agents

Modifies the linear coefficient of friction such that sheets do not slip against each other.

Antislip Agents

Modifies the coefficient of friction such that sheets slip with little friction against each other

Antioxidants

Protects polymers against damage caused by process heat and oxidation.

Fire resistance

enhances the polymers resistance to fire. Plastics can be protected in accordance with different UL specifications
In addition to the mentioned additives, we are expert at combining polymers, agents, and other materials to change the sheet qualities, finish and appearance. We have often found solutions and even more economical alternatives for many of our clients.

Extrusion capabilities

Fedplast has an impressive range of extrusion capabilities:

  • regular extrusion and coextrusion (where multiple layers are extruded together) from 0.010 inch thickness up to 0.500.
  • Width up to 72 Inches.
  • High control on finish: from matt to super high-gloss, we can control the appearance of the finish, by using different grades of polymers, and by coextruding different polymers one on another.
  • Variety of textures. We have an assortment of textured rolls which permit us to impress different textures to the sheet, the most popular of which are:
    • smooth
    • sandblast
    • sandgrain
    • haircell
    • morocco
    • and more…
  • Laminating: we have the capability of laminating films over the extruded sheets and rolls to enhance aestetics and functionality. For aestethics, films are available with woodgrain, marble, granite.
  • Corona treatment. to enable some polymers to better accept inks, paints and glues, we are able to corona treat both sides of our sheets.
Certain treatments and capabilities might not apply or be possible on all plastics. Please contact us to discuss your particular application.
