DS Smith Plastics Launches a More Economic Vehicle Protection Flooring and Lining Under their OEM Auto Components’ Brand, AkyDrive®
Made of extruded polypropylene plastic, AkyDrive® Flooring HX and Lining 1200 are a sustainable and economical solution to provide extra protection to commercial vehicles.
Normal daily usage causes some deterioration to the flooring of commercial vehicles. Therefore, manufacturers are interested in finding a durable, lightweight and impact resistant material that can provide extra protection to the flooring and the side walls on these types of vehicles.
Featuring an embossed flat slip-resistant, easy-to-clean, oil and lubricant-resistant surface, the new AkyDrive® Flooring HX by DS Smith Plastics is the perfect response to daily demands of commercial vehicle users.
The second solution, AkyDrive Lining 1200, offers an improved scratch-resistant surface allowing the conditions of the interior of the vehicle to better withstand the wear and tear of daily usage.
Both AkyDrive Flooring HX and Lining 1200 offer double advantages of strength and lightness. While lightweight reduces fuel consumption and optimizes payload; the durability and strength of polypropylene offers superior resistance to impact when compared with traditional materials such as wood.
Flooring and linings made of extruded polypropylene are a better option than traditional wood protection solutions due to its durability and lightweight. The new AkyDrive Flooring HX and Lining 1200 offer commercial vehicle owners additional protection and superior impact resistance. — Jeremy Freneat, OEM Market Segment Manager of DS Smith Plastics, Extruded Products
AkyDrive Flooring HX and Lining 1200 are made of non-toxic, VOC-free extruded polypropylene sheets. They are fully recyclable at end-of-life.
