Prepare a meal, step onto a new playground, or use a public restroom and chances are you'll encounter a plastic product made by Polymer Industries of Henagar, Alabama. Cutting board sheets, playground equipment and restroom partitions are only a few of the many applications of Polymer Industries' wide range of products.

For public transportation applications, we have several products to highlight this year at the APTA Expo:

  • We enable buses to load and unload safer and with less damage to the equipment and loading area through the use of our Densetec Bus Curb products. 
  • Our Polyslick Flexi Fend products are used in docking areas to protect the dock structure and the boats as they as they dock and deploy each time.
  • For slippery surfaces found inside train/subway stations and around ferry boats, our Ultrapoly Anti-Skid and Densetec Anti-Skid products to provide safe stairs and walkways by adding traction in areas that are wet and dangerous.

  • POLYSLICK Bus Curb
    POLYSLICK® BUS CURB is a synthetic fender designed to reduce street curb and transit station curb damage as well as reduce damage to bus wheels and tires....

  • POLYSLICK® BUS CURB is a custom formulated synthetic fender designed to reduce street curb and transit station
    curb damage as well as reduce damage to bus wheels and tires. Damage especially occurs when drivers are
    executing "precision or close docking". This safety oriented action is required to reduce the gap between the
    curb or station platform and the boarding floor of the bus. POLYSLICK® BUS CURB allows buses to impact and
    glide smoothly along the curb face maintaining a minimum boarding gap while protecting the curb and bus.
    Our standard high visibility colors are consistent and UV stabilized throughout the material so they permanently
    enforce the bus zone. No more painting!
  • ULTRAPOLY ANTI-SKID
    Safeguards pedestrian and vehicular slip hazard areas. These non-skid technologies are a direct replacement for non-skid tapes and paints.
    ...

  • ULTRAPOLY Anti-Skid® technology initially developed for the United States Navy has been scaled down for commercial use. New to the ULTRAPOLY Anti-Skid® family is BraxxTM permanent non-skid sheet. These non-skid technologies are a direct replacement for non-skid tapes and paints for industrial applications. 

    The product has a wear and impact resistant baseplate of ultra high molecular polyethylene (UHMW-PE). The surface of the sheet is covered with raised non-skid truncated domes comprised of sand or slag. Not only is the product a tactile warning surface, it also has a contrasting color theme (dark on light or light on dark). BraxxTM is available in UV yellow with a black slag surface and blue with a white sand surface.
  • POLYSLICK Flexi Fend
    Patented fenders used in ferry applications and other large dock/large ship applications to absorb energy and prevent damage....

  • The unique leaf spring shape of Flexi Fend allows it to flex with impact and return to shape with no permanent damage. Fenders fully recover from repeated collisions and heavy loads. Made of lightweight UHMWPE, Flexi Fend installs easily and is virtually maintenance free.
  • DENSETEC ANTI-SKID
    Densetec® Anti Skid is specifically designed for marine industries incorporating the latest available technologies to produce a non-skid surface ideal for all type of flooring applications....

  • Densetec® Anti Skid is specifically designed for the playground and marine industries incorporating the latest available technologies to produce a non-skid surface ideal for all type of flooring applications. 

    Firstly, Anti Skid incorporates an embossed surface with your choice of either round or square protrusions on one side of the sheet. These protrusions actually grip the tread of the shoe of the person walking on the surface. Also, water drains on the surface of the sheet beneath the protrusions making Anti Skid especially effective in wet conditions. 

    Secondly, Anti Skid is manufactured by using a high grip compound on the surface of the sheet presenting a tacky, high coefficient of friction material on the walking surface. This material is a more skid resistant material than HDPE and enhances the anti-skid properties. 

    DENSETEC Anti Skid is an ideal material for use as decking in playgrounds, boats, or anywhere an anti-skid surface is a requirement for a safe walkway or platform.
