Q. Can special sizes and / or colours be manufactured and supplied? What would be the delivery lead time for these?
A. Subject to minimum production volumes, smaller or larger panels can be supplied. We are limited in relation to special colours, as the regrind raw material may require special master batch colorants at considerable additional cost. Such special manufacture orders are usually 6-8 weeks delivery from receipt of official order.
 
Q. Will there be any colour variations between sheets?
A. Because we only use all regrind / recycled raw material from regular sources, there is a small variation only from time to time.
 
Q. Can Plaspanel® be fixed directly to framing for wall cladding and linings?
A. Our product can be glued to timber / metal framing using quality construction adhesive. It is recommended that usual sarking / building foil is also installed for external cladding applications.
