Hendrickson's new Aero Bright, a mirror-finish, non-metal bumper, delivers durability and high-impact resistance in a lightweight package.

Aero Bright is a composition of formable, shiny, weatherable films and thick-sheet thermoforming technology.

Thermoforming starts with a flat rectangular sheet of plastic clamped to a frame and heated to a specific temperature. The sheet is then pulled tightly over a tool with a vacuum.

To achieve strength and durability, special manufacturing techniques are used to retain the thickness of material when forming the HAB bumper. Hendrickson holds exclusive rights to this weatherable film technology for the Class 5-8 commercial vehicle industry.

For complete details, phone Hendrickson at 800-356-6737.
