Plastix Plus has adapted the use of heavy duty, high quality plastics, such as Vycom's Hitec HDPE, in lieu of using wood, metal or aluminum. The result was a product that lasts longer and is much more forgiving on the equipment you use. Plastic does not warp, rot or fade like wood and does not rust like metal. Plastic is a softer material, therefore, it will not damage the finish or functionality of your equipment.
Mike Snow, president and co-owner of Plastix Plus in Cypress, Texas has found that Vycom’s Hitec HDPE ½ inch matte finish black works best for these applications, because it is chemical and abrasion –resistant, easy to weld and fabricate and has a texture that prevents tools from sliding around.
