Newcomerstown, OH A new Sand surface texture of PVC/acrylic sheet for thermoforming, fabricating and membrane pressing has been introduced by Boltaron.
Developed initially for aircraft interiors requiring a non-glare surface that is attractive, resistant to soiling and easy to clean rapidly, the texture is now offered as a standard on all Boltaron sheet products utilized for mass transit interior components, industrial parts and building products, as well as aircraft components.
The new texture and other standards, including Coarse Matte, Felt, Haircell, Levant, Mesa and Suede, are said to retain their three-dimensional appearance during vacuum forming and membrane pressing operations.
Also available is an unlimited selection of custom textures with low minimums.
Sheet products available with the new texture range in thickness from 0.018 in. (0.46 mm) to 3.0 in. (76.2 mm), exhibit impact resistance to 20 ft-lbs/in (1059 J/m) and are offered in unlimited colors, metallics and patterns with FAR 25.853 (a) and (d), ABD-0031, BSS-7239, MVSS Docket 90 and 90A, UL 94 V-0 and 5V, Class 1-A, ASTM E-84 and FM 4910 fire ratings.
