When we find something in the manufacturing world that we deem as useful or interesting we try to share that with our customers just in case it benefits them as well as us. Most recently, we have noticed that aluminum .010 vents are rapidly becoming the standard of the plastic/Styrofoam industries. .010 slots offer greater open area with less extrusion of material than so-called .015 "hole" vents. Meanwhile, a .095 head thickness allows for greater contour applications. If you haven't used Sinel slotted vents for your styro/plastic needs in awhile, we feel you'll be pleasantly surprised!
