SABIC introduces proven STADECK heavy-duty panels to the Americas

 |  Subj: Press-releses

<p>SABIC, a&nbsp;global&nbsp;leader in&nbsp;the&nbsp;chemical&nbsp;industry will&nbsp;showcase for&nbsp;the&nbsp;first time in&nbsp;the&nbsp;Americas, STADECK heavy duty-panels for&nbsp;scaffolding and&nbsp;numerous other applications, at&nbsp;the&nbsp;NAHB&nbsp; International&nbsp;Builders Show in&nbsp;Las Vegas on&nbsp;February 1921. This follows the&nbsp;successful&nbsp;launch of&nbsp;these high-strength but&nbsp;extremely lightweight panels for&nbsp;the&nbsp;building and&nbsp;construction industry in&nbsp;Europe last year.</p> <p>Lightweight and&nbsp;highly durable, STADECK panels are made from&nbsp;glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic resin and&nbsp;are up&nbsp;to&nbsp;60&nbsp;percent lighter than wooden planks. The&nbsp;weight savings have an&nbsp;important influence on&nbsp;energy consumption during&nbsp;transport where SABIC estimates the&nbsp;total&nbsp;savings cost can be over&nbsp;30&nbsp;percent. Moreover, the&nbsp;excellent recyclability and&nbsp;long expected lifetime of&nbsp;STADECK panels make them&nbsp;more sustainable and&nbsp;efficient than standard wooden planks often used for&nbsp;scaffolding.</p> <p>Due to&nbsp;their unique construction, STADECK panels can stay outdoors for&nbsp;long periods and&nbsp;never rot or&nbsp;corrode. The&nbsp;panels are highly resistant to&nbsp;weathering, which means they withstand not&nbsp;only&nbsp;UV&nbsp;radiation and&nbsp;rain, but&nbsp;also&nbsp;chemicals commonly used in&nbsp;the&nbsp;construction industry. They have excellent flame-retardant properties as&nbsp;well.</p> <p>STADECK panels conform&nbsp;to&nbsp;NEN-EN 128111, the&nbsp;European standard that&nbsp;specifies performance requirements and&nbsp;methods of&nbsp;structural&nbsp;and&nbsp;general&nbsp;design for&nbsp;access and&nbsp;working scaffolds. They also have anti-slip properties, which is an&nbsp;important requirement for&nbsp;workers on&nbsp;building sites.</p> <p>In&nbsp;addition to&nbsp;scaffolding, the&nbsp;panels offer significant advantages in&nbsp;applications where weight saving and&nbsp;high strength are important. STADECK panels are well&nbsp;suited for&nbsp;frame works decking, fencing, floodwalls, jetties, sheathing, wheel&nbsp;chair ramps and&nbsp;numerous other purposes. They can be installed quickly and&nbsp;easily, which makes them&nbsp;ideal&nbsp;for&nbsp;temporary applications such&nbsp;as&nbsp;flooring at&nbsp;events and&nbsp;festivals. Because&nbsp;they are more lightweight, they are also easier to&nbsp;handle than wooden panels.</p> <p>The&nbsp;panels, which can be produced in&nbsp;different colors, come in&nbsp;standard dimensionsgauge 2.165&nbsp;in, width 9.06&nbsp;in; and&nbsp;lengths of&nbsp;118&nbsp;in&nbsp;and&nbsp;236&nbsp;inwith&nbsp;custom&nbsp;lengths available on&nbsp;request.</p>
