Plastic Sheet Perforation
Lightweight, corrosion resistant, and cost-effective, perforated plastics are ideal for use in a variety of applications such as speaker covers and acoustic lining materials. Plastic materials, however, can vary widely in their reaction to preparation. Some perforated plastics become wavy, while others will shatter, crack, splinter, fray, or discolor.
McKey’s many years of perforation experience allow us to skillfully handle plastic sheet perforation to draw peak performance from these materials. Our materials experts work with our customers to minimize difficulties and maximize performance in a completed component. McKey supplies perforated plastics that are flat and easily formed or fabricated to shape.
Because plastics cannot be leveled or flattened, precise tooling and proper clearances are critically important. McKey’s in-house tooling experts can create custom tools for these applications.
McKey operates a selection of plastics only by appointment and will provide an oil-free setting for minimum compromise of finished components.
