Materials Used for PPE Products
Along with various shapes, we supply different materials used for PPE products:
- Acrylic – This type of plastic, also known as Plexiglass, is a transparent thermoplastic that boasts several unique characteristics not found in other plastic materials. Key benefits: Weighs 50 percent less than glass, and it’s resistant to temperature fluctuations, chemicals, and high impact, making it ideal for COVID plastic barriers.
- Mylar – Officially called BoPET, the acronym for biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate, plastics manufacturers make this polyester film from stretched PET (polyethylene terephthalate). Key benefits: Outstanding barrier against gasses, odors, moisture, and airborne contaminants, and due to its flexibility, it too is a great option for COVID protection screens.
- Polycarbonate – This is a type of thermoplastic polymer with carbonate groups as part of its chemical composition. Easy to work and mold, it’s an excellent choice for COVID plastic barriers. Key benefits: Easy to cut, shape, and install, lightweight, and it’s 250 times stronger than glass, making it ideal for protective barriers in factories, warehouses, and manufacturing plants.
- PVC – PVC, the acronym for Polyvinyl chloride, ranks as number three in the most commonly manufactured plastic in the entire world. It’s available in both rigid and flexible forms. Key benefits: Resists abrasions, it’s lightweight, has excellent toughness and mechanical strength, and it’s easy to cut, shape, weld, and join.
Numerous businesses depend on our plastics, including hospitals, airports, restaurants, and schools. Manufacturers can even customize a COVID-19 plastic screen guard for the interior of emergency response vehicles. Other uses for our products include:
- Business Offices – Installing a COVID plastic shield for a desk lets employees safely perform their duties and communicate with customers,
- Convenient and Grocery Stores – Cashiers can help shoppers at the checkout while staying safe behind a COVID guard shield.
With our expertise, we can help you select the right material for a COVID guard shield or any other protective barrier. Regardless of the type, size, or configuration of the space involved, we can accommodate your needs.
