Product Information

Replas sheeting is 100% solid plastic sheets 2.4×1.2m in size currently available in thickness range from 7 to 60 mm in recycled HDPE, LLDPE, LDPE and PP. This sheeting is manufactured in Australia (Carrum Downs, Victoria) in a range of colours, in smooth or textured surface finish. Unlike timber based sheets or panels, Replas sheeting is tough, strong & durable, will not rot, crack, swell, determinate, mildew or be attacked by termites. It will last for years outdoors and in continuous contact with water and many corrosive chemicals that would attack and destroy most metals.

Replas sheeting can be used for a huge range of applications in many industries including Agriculture, Aquaculture, Building & Construction, Chemical, Equine, Manufacturing, Marine, Materials Handling, Signage, Transport, etc.

Replas sheeting can be sawed, routed, drilled and machined using standard equipment used for timber, and can be heat welded using specialised plastic welding equipment. We can cut components out of full panels to the exact shape and size using our CNC router.  Please supply a dimension sketch or CAD drawing (DWG or DXF), and details of material and quantity required and we will provide a quotation to you during the next working day.

  1. Cleaning sheeting

HDPE sheets, and parts made from HDPE sheets, should be cleaned using a high pressure washer or soap and water. In case of graffiti, use a commercial graffiti removal product according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and rinse off thoroughly with water. Solvents are OK to use for cleaning, but DO NOT use any abrasive cleaners such as JIF or scouring pads / steel wool as the surface will be permanently scratched.

  1. UV

Carbon black is added to all our black materials at the rate recommended by the manufacturer for protection against UV degradation. All coloured raw materials have UV-resistant pigments and a chemical UV stabilizer added during compounding at the maximum recommended addition rate for the best possible UV protection. All black and coloured sheets are covered by our 15 year warranty against structural failure when used outdoors. This structural warranty does not cover fading.  If excessive fading or colour change is experienced within the first 12 months of outdoor exposure, we will replace the faulty parts.

Note: Natural materials are not suitable for long term use outdoors. Natural sheets are covered by our 15 year warranty against structural failure only when used indoors.

Recycled background information

We compression mould sheets from both recycled and virgin HDPE and PP materials at our manufacturing facility in Carrum Downs. All coloured sheets are made from 97-98% recycled HDPE with the addition of UV resistant pigments and UV stabiliser that protects the polymer from UV degradation. Black sheets are made from 100% recycled HDPE or PP with the addition of carbon black for UV resistance. We also make to order virgin black HDPE sheets and virgin natural HDPE and PP sheets.

We buy only Australian made raw materials. Our virgin materials are supplied by the two local manufacturers QENOS (HDPE) and Lyondell Basell (PP). Our recycled materials are sourced from a number of companies around Australia that specialize in recycling of plastics.

All recycled materials are derived only from industrial sources (not post-consumer) to ensure product quality and consistency. We do not use any fillers or foaming agents in our raw materials to retain the original mechanical and chemical properties of the polymer. Each batch of material is tested for contamination before use. All scrap generated at Design Flow during trimming and machining of our sheets is recycled back into black material pellets and re-used. We also collect scrap from our sheets for recycling from a number of our customers.

In our production process we control the sheet thickness by accurately measuring the weight of raw material in each mould, which results in sheet thickness tolerance of +/-5% of nominal thickness. Each sheet is checked for thickness and defects after manufacture. Each sheet is trimmed to size or cut into parts on our CNC routers. CNC cutting tolerance is +/-0.5mm.
