Performance Statement

Plaztech Industries is committed to continually improving and ensuring the ongoing quality of its products.

As part of this process we have recently completed a range of tests, carried out independently, to assess the performance levels of our duct products and how they performed against a number of our competitors’ products.

The key performance criteria that were selected for testing include; Impact Strength, Weathering, Gloss Retention, Modulas (stiffness), Heat DistortionTemperature andYield Strength. All of these characteristics put together determine the overall performance that is experienced during installation and throughout the life of the product.

You will see in the following charts and test results the overall performance ratings for Ezyduct®/Myduct® and 4 other competitor products which were all exposed to exactly the same testing regime.

Table 1.Test results for all 4 products across all performance criteria
