Plastic sheets differ considerably in their technical properties. These properties vary in respect to hardness, elasticity and heat resistance. On this page, we detail all of our heat resistant sheets.
Our range includes a large selection of plastic sheets in different colours, finishes and thicknesses. A frequently asked question is: which material is recommended for a certain application? If you are thinking of buying a kitchen splashback, for example, heat resistance is an important consideration when making your choice. However, because there are different expectations for each sheet, we have developed a selection tool to always give you personalised advice whenever and wherever you want it.
Every plastic sheet has a special property such as transparency, strength or heat resistance. But when is it important to know why a plastic sheet is heat resistant? What does ‘heat resistant’ actually mean? Heat resistance means: the ability of a material to retain its own properties at high temperatures. However, when the temperature rises above the maximum recommended temperature for a material – which depends on the duration of the thermal load – its properties change so much that it is no longer suitable for its original application (e.g. unintentional deformation). The maximum temperatures vary from one material to another.
We have a wide range of plastic sheets that differ in colour, finish and thickness. The heat-resistant ACP or aluminium composite panels, for example, are available in many different colours. The transparent polycarbonate sheets are ideal for outdoor applications because they are highly resistant to high temperatures and UV radiation; as a result, the panels do not yellow from the sun.
Our ACP (aluminium composite panels) are resistant to various chemicals such as acids, bases, oils and strong solvents. The panel is also insensitive to temperature changes. It can be used in temperatures from -50°C up to +90°C. This sheet is, for example, ideal as a splashback in a kitchen. Transparent polycarbonate panels, on the other hand, are regularly used as glazing for burglary-sensitive, and anti-vandalism objects, such as bus shelters at bus stops, bicycle shelters and waiting rooms.
With our selection tool, we provide you with personalised advice whenever and wherever you want. You simply select the properties you need – such as plastic, heat resistant – and a list of suitable heat resistant plastic sheets will be displayed.
