Quinn Plastics : 08 February, 2002  (New Product)
Vink Mannheim, a subsidiary of the well known European distributor of semi-finished Plastics 'Vink', uses Spectar sheets in roofing/cladding application for supermarket trolley shelters.
Vink supplied Spectar to Frank GmbH of Nordheim (Germany) who have built trolley shelters for a well known English supermarket-chain. 'Spectar sheet have ideal properties for these trolley shelters. It's Impact-resistance offers a good balance between quality and price', said Andreas Ponto, spokesmen of Frank GmbH. 'We foresee to place approximately 500 trolley shelters', he added.

The Shelters are domed with Spectar UV Clear, with a thickness of 5 mm. Vink Mannheim ordered approximately 7000m2 of Spectar sheets in total for this project.

Spectar sheet offers excellent clarity, outstanding toughness, cold formable, machinable, die cuttable and excellent thermoforming properties. This material meets the standards required for street furniture in many applications such as bus shelters, light frames, bicycle sheds, passageways or arcades.

Barlo Plastics' business director of High Impact products, Ayub Adams said: 'Commercial street furniture requires demanding features.
Street furniture is exposed to extensive use of public life with vulnerability to vandalism and has to be resistant to weathering too. Spectar not only offers good optical and aesthetic properties but it is also proportionally tough material and is durable with high impact properties.'

In addition Spectar Sheet is easy to process and can be decorated by spray paints, vinyl films, and printing processes. It is economical and less expensive than available high impact sheet products. Spectar offer outstanding chemical resistance and is FDA food contact approved with regulatory fire test approval.
