Custom sized FRP for use with water purification systems
A leading water clarifier manufacturer and engineering firm contacted the Kal-Lite Division with a very specific issue: They needed a cost-effective product to be used in direct contact with drinking water.
The Kal-Lite H2O product was developed based on a clarifier manufacturer’s needs. We developed a formula that is NSF-61 certified and can be immersed in water [direct-contact].
After working closely with our customer to develop the right product, Kal-Lite closely monitored
After a steadfast commitment to closely monitor all materials throughout formulation and a close partnership with our customer, Kal-Lite H2O components are a part of water purification systems around the world for both industrial and municipal applications.
Custom FRP panels for commercial doors
The commercial door manufacturing business is full of problems unique to each company’s processes. Some use a proprietary coating requiring a paintable surface; others need solid consistent color throughout the sheeting with a U.V. resistant resin rich surface. Additionally, many applications are looking to achieve special fire properties for code requirement.
Kal-Lite has developed a group of products designed to meet and exceed the needs of their unique manufacturing process, including:
- Cutting to size to minimize waste
- Developed custom colors giving the end user more reason to choose our customer
- Paintable no-sanding coating for more versatility
- Five finishes to select from
- Smaller minimum requirements to help keep our customer’s non-stocked inventory low
- Bondable back which helps any adhesive grip better
Industrial Metal Building Panels
A special blend of FRP designed for its superior strength and feather-weight. Proven to stand up to a hurricane.
Kal-Lite has long been used in industrial metal building panels for its easy to clean interior surface. But in this application, the problem was the core of the panel itself. Our customer needed something to replace the heavy metal plate used it their product that gives the panel rigidity.
Kal-Lite developed an ultra-thin continuous sheet with a very high concentration of fiberglass. With multiple layers of woven roving and chopped glass we can achieve a much greater strength to weight ratio – it is both strong and light! When the sheeting has been laminated to the core insulating material, it became a product strong enough to hold up to the most rigorous testing. In fact, the customers finished product has passed Dade County hurricane testing!
ULD: Air freight container
A ULD container manufacturer needed a product for a major air freight company.
The company needed a material that could handle the demands of airport loading-areas. Including conditions, such as: Weather around the world, thousands of packages moving in and out, spray from airplane de-icing, jet fuel, and fumes.
By communicating with our customer, Kal-Lite produced a group of products that were tailor-made to suit their needs. The material passed all required FAA tests in their class, and held up to stress from loading and unloading.
Flat sheet FRP from Kal-Lite was ideal for this application due to its lightweight and remarkable toughness. And with custom cutting from Kal-Lite, our customer could optimize efficiency where it mattered the most.
