Recommendations for Fabrication and Installation

Anti-infection and counter screens made of SIMOGLAS™ are an effective means of protecting against contamination via droplets.

These plastic screens can be routed with most saws and cutting tools and can be installed using a variety of methods, including U-rails, frames, clips, screws and fasteners. The material is not notch sensitive, so it will not crack or fracture during assembly.

Cutting

These plastic screens can be routed with most saws and cutting tools.

Set-up: Cutting 15 sheets at a time

Blade speed: 3500 rpm

Blade spec: 16” diameter blade, 1/8” thick, 60 tooth blade, carbide tips

Source: SCM in Duluth GA. Model is a Galaxy 125 PLM 3800.

*If only cutting one sheet at a time, try a 100 tooth blade for cleaner cut with a faster cross cut speed *May vary depending on type of machine utilized

Welding

Weld-On 2007 works great for this product when fixturing.  The bond is as strong as the material when cured.

Cleaning

SIMOGLAS™ clear thermoplastic sheet can be cleaned daily using standard cleaning products. Follow the instructions on the bottle and make sure to remove all of the product residue with a soft cloth after cleaning. For heavier soiling, isopropyl alcohol can be used.

Compared to other clear materials, SIMOGLAS (far left) will not show surface crazing as a result of cleaning with strong chemical cleaners, such as isopropyl alcohol.

Chemical Resistance and Cleanability

SIMOGLAS was formulated to have superior chemical resistance compared to other clear materials, especially in installations where stress or tension is applied to the screen. Therefore, it can be cleaned more frequently using strong chemical cleaning products and will maintain its durability and appearance.
