Storm Board is a plastic board made from recycled materials. Storm Board is a moulded plastic product and is produced larger than the end size. Standard boards are made from 100% mixed waste plastic. This is usually classed as “unrecyclable” plastic and includes bottle tops, crisp packets, cosmetic packaging, food packaging, garden toys etc. The plastic is cleaned and cooked at over 200˚C during processing.
Storm Board is the most utilitarian of our boards. It has a smooth PE/PP surface encapsulating the mixed plastic waste core. It’s really tough, easy to clean, with good chemical resistance. It is hard for paint/graffiti to stick to it unless a key is made by sanding. It is formable, UV stable and can be plastic welded. The colour will be speckled. Storm Boards are cuttable using a hand saw, skill saw or circular saw. They are lightweight and easy to work with. The boards are stiff and keep their shape for any installation. They are waterproof with a long life outdoors. These boards are weldable for watertight installations and formable with heat. They are hygienic and easy to clean.
What to expect:
It may sound silly, but plastic is not wood and does not react like wood, Wood is stiffer and planed to very tight tolerances. Storm Board will have a smooth surface of recycled plastic, encapsulating a 100% waste plastic core. A pallet of Storm Board will often have a dip in the middle, which is a result of the cooling process. If you turn the boards over on a flat surface, this will come out. Storm Board edges will be higher than the centre. The voids that make up the cellular core will be irregular, some larger than others. This is what makes the boards light and stiff.
Plastic or Wood Board?
When choosing Storm Board over plywood, consider the application and total final cost. Outdoors, for example, as a boarding, Storm Board does not need painting, does not need aluminium composite, will outlast plywood, is jet washable and can be reused on the next site. It does expand/contract more than plywood, and so a slightly different fixing profile should be used, like the top hat system. The key in transitioning from wood to plastic boards is to adapt the system used currently for wood slightly so that it is ideal for plastic and sustainable reuse.
The boards come as an oversized 2.4m x1.2m x19mm sheet and weigh 32 kgs.
