Polyethylene, a polyolefin, is the largest volume thermoplastic polymer used today. 
It is available in a wide variety of grades and formulations that have an equally wide range of properties. 
In general, polyethylene’s are characterized by toughness, excellent chemical resistance and electrical properties, low co-efficient of friction, near zero moisture absorption, light weight and ease of processing.


Playground Board

Ralloy Playground Board is an ideal substrate for all outdoor environments. A variety of bright contrasting colours make it perfectly suited where high impact colours are required. As the colour is embedded in the sheet, it never needs painting. This material lasts much longer than wood.

The versatile properties of Ralloy Playground Board make it virtually vandal resistant. The UV stabiliser added to the material make the colours fade-resistant and the standard properties of HDPE used in the production make it weather-resistant and the perfect choice for outdoor environments.

Design potential is unlimited with Ralloy Playground Board. Mulford Plastics welcomes custom orders for machining of this material.

Signboard

Ralloy Signboard is manufactured by extruding one colour on the inside and a contrasting colour on the outside. The layers are combined while the material is still molten. The result is a homogenous sheet that is guaranteed not to delaminate, crack or chip. It is superior to other sign materials, which are separate layers of material laminated together. Ralloy Sign Board is easily routed or engraved using current CNC router technology. As the skin of the material is removed by the router, the inside colour shows through, a sign is easily fabricated with minimum finishing requirements. The durable textured finish resists scratches and marring. The product is UV stabilized to resist deterioration in harsh outdoor environments, making it the perfect signage material.
