It is obtained by means of an extrusion process of one or more layers of SHOCK-PROOF POLYSTYRENE (HIPS). It is characterised by high mechanical strength with good resistance also at low temperatures. Because of the high stress-cracking resistance to some halogenated hydrocarbons used in polyurethane insulating foam formulations, MP FR 85 is particularly suitable for extrusion of sheets for thermoforming for refrigerator cold rooms and counter doors. Please contact our Engineering Department for further information. On request, it is supplied with CORONA treatment to enhance the grip of the polyurethane foams. It can be made in a vast range of colours, and in a glossy and/or matt finish. It is manufactured in compliance with the requirements of DIRECTIVE 2002/72/EC “Plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food” and its amendments, accompanied by the relative declaration of suitability.
