Industry Applications

REFLECTIVE FILMS

Reflective films are multi-layered films incorporating glass beads and a mirror-reflective layer. They reflect light strongly when illuminated from the front or at an incident angle. Available in a range of colours, they have performance characteristics such as durability and reflectivity values engineered according to the requirements of the application.

PHOTOLUMINESCENT FILMS AND SHEET

These are quality, long-afterglow products, typically used for safety signage, and achieve glow times of at least 12 hours after as little as 5 minutes light activation.

PIGMENTS

These are quality, long-afterglow pigments, and achieve glow times of at least 12 hours after as little as 5 minutes light activation.

Components and Functionalities

PurgeX®™ A

PurgeX®™ A is cell cast acrylic in granular form. As distinct from the T, S and R grades, PurgeX®™ A grade is typically used in unblended form (i.e. at 100%) in extrusion and compounding processes.

PurgeX®™ A provides a gentle scrubbing effect to the screw and barrel and removes build up of carbonised material.

PurgeX®™ A softens but does not melt, therefore it provides a scrubbing effect – it does not scratch or wear the screw or barrel.
