Kemlite manufactures three primary fiberglass reinforced plastic (frp) products used by the Truck Trailer, Van Body, and Rail Industries:
* Translucent Roof Panel – see-through roofs for dry van trailers and truck bodies
* Liner Panels – lightweight panels used in refrigerated truck trailers and truck bodies
* Heavy Duty Scuffplate Panels – protective wear band for dry and refrigerated trailers, van bodies, and rail cars
Started in 1954, Kemlite produces product on six wide panel machines in three separate plant locations. Known as the industry leader, Kemlite is responsible for introducing Kemply® laminated panels, King-size liner panels (full width, full height), Translucent roof panels, Lightweight liner panels, Tapered liner panels, On-line wedge cut panels, LumaShield protective film, thermally efficient Reefer RoofTM, and high impact GatorPlate and Monster ScuffPlate.
Kemlite’s unique process can produce panels in a thickness range from 0.050″ up to 0.240″. Panels can be produced to your specific length and width requirements – from a 4′ X 8′ panel up to a 9′ X 600′ coil. Panel finishes are available with an embossed or smooth surface. All OEM panels include LumaShield protective surface film for enhanced cleanability and weathering.
Products produced by Kemlite must pass “real world” test requirements. These tests focus on puncture and impact strengths as well as tear strength and rivet pullout strength. Kemlite’s unique manufacturing process allows for the use of coarse, stiff fiberglass that contributes significantly to the excellent physical properties of its panels.
With its ISO 9002 certification and focus on Operational Excellence, Kemlite is not only recognized for its engineering leadership but also as the quality and service leader in the industry.
