Densetec Technical Specifications
Tredsafe Colour Stack - From Fahr Industries
PCR Colour Stack - From Farh Industries

Face Finish: Textured (typically "orange peel" or "desert sand" finish with round or square slip-resistant pattern on TredSafe top surfaces only)


UV Stability: Where applicable Densetec HDPE sheets are manufactured with a standard 5 year UV protection package. The materials contain 0.1% antioxidant and 0.4% UV stabiliser in the final product. We would expect this to give a 5 year protection level dependant upon the conditions where the product is used. Please note the following sheets do not have a UV protection package as standard: Utility Board, Partition Board and Cutting Board.


Expansion: The coefficient of thermal expansion for Densetec HDPE is approximately 1.5mm per metre per 10deg C.


Pigments: None of our pigments have heavy metal contents in their pigment packages. We do not manufacture any sheets in colours that contain heavy metals (including cadmium or chromium). Most of the colours that we supply for playground equipment, for example, are even FDA approved, meaning that they are safe for food applications (FDA - US Food and Drug Administration).


Fire Rating: ASTM Test D1248, tested fire rating UL94HB. Densetec HDPE does not cause or suffer from surface flash in any way.
