Transportation

With over 7 billion people, the economical movement of people has become a priority for the world’s population.

Transit systems range from school buses, rail cars and high speed train systems to airplanes. Ecological requirements like the reduction of CO2 emissions and the need to reduce general traffic jams push the public transportation system to one of the top priorities in every city.

To make public transportation safe and comfortable, while reducing the carbon footprint within the community, plastics offer versatility, innovation and allow for creativity with materials that have a proven track record of performance.

Plastifab is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with SEKISUI Polymer Innovations, LLC for opaque mass transit interior profiles. SEKISUI’s resin compounds KYDEX®P88 and KYDEX®P2200 matched with Plastifab’s profile extrusion and in house tooling capabilities, give you the flexibility in form and design which was long sought for in the mass transit market.

The frequently needed profiles for trims, exposed edges and joints can now be an integral part of your design and offer attractive transitions from part to part.
