3A COMPOSITES IS TRYING TO SUPPORT WITH DIFFERENT MATERIALS TO REDUCE THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS
The safety of customers, employees, and facilities is always of primary importance. In order to fight against Covid-19, 3A Composites strictly applies the official guidelines, measures and recommendations of WHO on their sites as well as in all private environments. As largest European manufacturer of plastic and composite sheets, the company is attempting to alleviate the ongoing crisis by providing different materials offering many benefits to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. With its eleven production sites all over Europe, the company is ready to help. Production capabilities have been increased and production schedules have been changed to fulfill requirements for protective materials.
So far 3A Composites was able to contribute in the following projects that were realized with its materials:
TEMPORARY MEDICAL FACILITIES
London’s NHS Nightingale Hospital was built in a fortnight using white rigid PVC foamboards for temporary partition walls at ExCeL exhibition centre to separate individuals infected with Covid-19. This temporary hospital offers space for 4.000 patients.
Why FOREX® | FOAMALITE®?
In addition 3A Composites’ range of Aluminium Composite Materials including ALUCOBOND®, DIBOND® and ALUCORE® are perfect materials for temporary walls, transport boxes as well as medical furniture and clean rooms.
FACE SHIELDS / VISORS
Multiple companies are currently producing face visors using 3A Composites’ thin 0,5mm A-PET (amorphous polyethylene terephthalate) sheets, to protect doctors, nursing staff and people who can’t avoid direct contact with others.
Why LUMEX® A | HIPEX® A?
HYGIENIC PROTECTION WALLS
Clear transparent sheet materials are currently being used for hygienic protection walls in the health & retail industry to prevent the further spread of the virus. Within 3A Composites’ range of products different plastic sheets can be used for such applications: CRYLON®/AKRYLON®/PERSPEX® XT extruded acrylic glass sheets, PERSPEX®/CRYLUX™ cast acrylic glass sheets, IMPEX® polycarbonate sheets; LUMEX®/HIPEX® PET sheets. But not only the clear sheet itself, often a material combination is used, e.g holders to fix the clear sheets are made out of KAPA® or FOREX® / FOAMALITE®.
Why cast/extruded acrylic glass sheets?
3A Composites is here to help and to assist customers with their requirements to find the right material and to fight together against Covid-19!
