Cadillac Plastic has rapidly become an integral partner in the fight against the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
A number of our key customers are striving to keep up with demand for protective equipment for key workers across the UK.
We are supporting them in supplying high-performance materials used in the production of protective visors and masks, as well as for labelling key equipment such as ventilators.
Materials including Melinex 505 and Lexan 8010MC provide benefits including flexibility, durability and clarity - vital in the production of protective equipment such as visors and masks in particular.
Whilst, Lexan Polycarbonate films including FR65, 8B35 and 8010MC, and Reflex provide temperature resistance, good printability and ease of processing for forming and bending, all useful in the production of labelling for equipment that needs to be durable.

As we find ourselves in strange and challenging times, we felt it important to provide a brief update on activity at Cadillac Plastic Limited.
We would like to reassure you that at the present time, our operations continue as normal. We are working to manage the impacts of the Coronavirus, whilst ensuring the wellbeing of employees and customers; but please be assured we are still in the office, ready to take your calls and process your orders.
This may change in the coming days and weeks, but we are closely monitoring the situation and following advice issued by the Government.
We have taken several steps to adapt our business operations:
• We have increased our stock holding to see us through the coming months. Delays in delivery may occur, but we will be working to reduce any potential impact and we do not anticipate a high risk of this.
• We are reducing interaction with delivery drivers where possible to protect staff and minimise the risk of cross-contamination.
• Our sales team is office-based and as such we are following guidance around social distancing, as far as possible.
• Visitors to the Cadillac Plastic office are minimal and access is being controlled.
• We will continue to keep all lines of communication open with our customers and suppliers. Should your require additional information please contact us on 01793 648500 or email: email@example.com.
We hope that our customers and colleagues remain safe at this time, and are able to maintain business operations as far as possible.

Cadillac Plastic advises all customers that the possibility of supplies of our materials being affected by the coronavirus are minimal. Whilst we do import certain products from China and there is some evidence that the virus can live on surfaces, materials are shipped via sea freight with a port-to-port transit time of approximately 27 days. Based on our current knowledge, this is well beyond the time the virus can survive outside of the human body. We will continue to monitor the latest information on this virus and will provide updates if the advice changes.
Over the last twelve months, due to the availability of some of the most advanced, specialist products on the market, Cadillac Plastic has further grown its business within the Aircraft interior and mass-transit industries.
