New thermoformable TPO sheet from Spartech Corp., Clayton, Mo., reportedly offers improved processability for RV, bus, truck, and marine applications. “Extreme” sheet products comprise three grades that provide a wider processing window, better sag control, and enhanced aesthetics, Spartech says. Extreme LG is a low- to medium-gloss product and Extreme HG provides high gloss (85%) and excellent depth of image in a range of colors. Extreme D is a two-layer construction with Spartech’s Korad acrylic. It imparts gloss plus abrasion and chemical resistance, thus eliminating the need for paint or other coatings. Among the first commercial applications are 8 × 10 ft RV exterior panels. Widths up to 120 in. and thicknesses from 60 to 325 mils are available. (817) 652-4330 • www.spartech.com
