US Liner Company, a division of American Made LLC, is relaunching Bulitex and Bulitex Hybrid. The woven thermoplastic composite sheet that in 1999 offered a high-impact, lightweight alternative to fiberglass-reinforced thermoset plastic (FRP), wood, steel, and aluminum is back and available for delivery starting in July 2012.
Michael LaRocco, president of US Liner, said, “Bulitex and Bulitex Hybrid can be mixed and matched with any of its other materials (Versitex and Ecotex) to meet performance requirements and budget needs.”
Jeff Meek, vice-president of sales and marketing, said, “Not only are we excited to have our woven materials back in our arsenal again, but we are able to roll-back our pricing to 2008 levels. Over the last 18 months, US Liner has invested tens of millions of dollars to have the equipment necessary to meet the ever-increasing customer requirements for timely material.”
US Liner’s full line of reinforced composite materials includes:
•Bulitex—Fully woven layers
•Bulitex Hybrid—Woven/Bi-directional combination layers
•Versitex—Fully bi-directional layers
•Ecotex—Recycled core with woven or bi-directional skins
All US Liner materials are available in a variety of thicknesses and widths up to 106 inches. They are normally supplied in bulk coils up to 1,200 feet long. Materials can be cut using a circular saw with carbide-tipped blade and can easily be sheared, routed, or drilled for simple installation. Because materials are made using thermoplastic polypropylene, they can be formed into even complex shapes or welded—with no loss of strength.
