New Hoffman Type 4X Polyester Enclosures Offer Superior Performance and Protection in Chemical and UV Environments



Robust POLYPRO(TM) Enclosures Feature Durable Polyester Construction

Anoka, MN-February 18, 2008-Hoffman announces POLYPRO(TM) Type 4X Polyester Enclosures for housing electrical and electronic controls in harsh environments. The robust enclosures provide excellent corrosion protection, flame resistance and ultraviolet protection in both indoor and outdoor applications. POLYPRO Enclosures include features for easy assembly and mounting, and the durable, yet flexible polyester material is easily modified to meet a wide range of application needs.

Competitively-priced POLYPRO Enclosures are available in a variety of sizes ranging from 6 x 4 x 4 inches to 18 x 16 x 10 inches and feature non-glass filled polyester construction, providing numerous advantages over alternative non-metallic materials. POLYPRO Enclosures are UV stabilized and chemically resistant to a broad range of solvents, alkalis and acids. The lightweight POLYPRO enclosure series also delivers excellent water absorption resistance for reduced swelling and offers impact resistance up to ten times greater than fiberglass. POLYPRO Enclosures are easily modified to include holes and cutouts, tapped holes and colors. Plus, POLYPRO Enclosures are recyclable.

"The POLYPRO Type 4X enclosure series is an exceptional new option for applications requiring robust environmental resistance," said Nathan Espinosa, Hoffman product manager. "POLYPRO Enclosures offer rugged non-glass filled polyester construction, making them a superior alternative for harsh environments where traditional metallic enclosures are not as suitable." Espinosa adds, "The POLYPRO enclosure series is long-lasting, durable and more resistant to chemical agents, making it an ideal solution for harsh, corrosive environments."

The POLYPRO enclosure series is available in 10 solid door and 10 window door models featuring an external snap-together body and cover for easy assembly, and an overlapping tongue and groove raised cover with a seamless foam-in-place gasket for a secure seal. In addition, a molded layout grid on the inside of the cover and body assists with component mounting, and an integrated rail system allows for easy panel height adjustment. Plus, POLYPRO Enclosures meet UL and CSA Type 4X, IP66, and several additional industry standards, and they are RoHS compliant.
