Meeting What’s Important In Agriculture And Heavy Equipment

While no colour tolerance system is perfect, the ellipsoid tolerance of CMC best represents the differences observed by our eyes.

Based on the higher degree of agreement, SEKISUI KYDEX utilizes CMC tolerance to inspect the colour of its thermoplastic sheet products.


The subject of gloss is more comprehensive than how “shiny” a surface appears to the human eye. This technical brief outlines and educates on the subject of gloss and the terms that can be used to describe it.


Thermoplastics offer important advantages over fiberglass, sheet metal, and sheet molding. Thermo­plastics are lighter and resist chemical damage and heat, all while giving you the power to transform the look and feel of your agricultural or heavy equipment products with custom colour and welcoming imagery.
