Curbell Plastics stocks plastic sheet, film, rod, and tube for use in disease prevention applications such as partitions and barriers. Transparent and antimicrobial plastic sheets are available for cashier shields, table dividers, and sneeze guards. Various gauges and lengths of our polyester, PETG, and polycarbonate films are used in PPE face masks. Antimicrobial formulations of plastics are going into high traffic areas such as cash register stations, mass transit systems, and emergency vehicles to help inhibit the growth of unwanted microorganisms on highly touched surfaces. 

Grocery stores, hospitals, schools, transportation companies, municipalities, and manufacturing plants turned to Curbell for quality materials to rapidly build physical safety barriers for hundreds to thousands of essential employees and customers. Our plastics experts actively participated by providing partition solutions so restaurants, retail shops, schools, and others could reopen their doors with peace of mind. As more organizations think holistically about design, durability, and the user experience of disease prevention applications, Curbell Plastics is available to lend material expertise, machining and conversion capabilities, and help to overcome application design challenges.
