Infection Protection…continued

In an interview with Forbes, Mitch Grindley, Plaskolite’s Executive Chairman, reports their ramped up production was extruding enough acrylic sheet to be used for over 200,000 barriers back in March-April, 2020 with current revenue up 6- fold while current deliveries running about 15 weeks

Lucite International has been supplying polymer at record volumes to Plaskolite.

Altuglas/Arkema meanwhile reports the increased revenue brings them up to full capacity but has no plans to expand and may still may be looking to divest its MMA monomer and sheet business.

Typical completed barriers are being marketed for an average of $250 uninstalled by companies such as Display World, E & T Plastics and Faulkner Plastics.
