ViSpec HD 2100

A HDPE sheet with excellent impact properties at very low temperatures, with very good chemical resistance and stiffness. It is particular resistant to stress whitening when bent Fume extraction equipment
Chemical tanks
Chemical equipment 
- Very high impact resistance
- Very tough
- High chemical resistance
 ViSpec VHMW 2160

A HDPE sheet offering the traditional characteristics of a quality material including excellent impact performance at low temperatures, good chemical resistance, and very good stiffness. This material has been modified with a high molecular weight, which significantly improves mechanical strength and abrasion resistance.

- Very high impact resistance
- Very tough and stiffer than HDPE
- High chemical resistance
- Easy to recycle 
 ViSpec Celmar 3180

A Polypropylenesheet modified for improved impact resistance with polyester fabric laminated to one side.  The polyester backing is ‘laid-up’ with glass reinforced resins to produce strong lightweight structures.  The major benefit of Celmar® is that it allows designers to use the superb chemical resistance of polypropylene and replace costly alternatives such as stainless and rubber lined mild steel.
