Polymax

I've seeen a lot of talk about Polymax in this group. It looks really cool, and I apologize, cause I'm sure this has been covered... I just can't find it. So...

What is Polymax? What is it made of? How strong is it? How much does it weigh? How much does it cost? and most importantly...
WHERE DO YOU BUY IT?

Thanks

$110 bucks for shipping??? Try this place, it looks the same, but the shipping is like $8 per pieces.

I ordered 3 sheets to make walkways between the side rails on my cat frame (11 inches center to center). Shipping to Oregon was $28. I was a little disappointed in how flexible the stuff is, but I can make it work. I would have used aluminum diamond plate, but I like the fact that you can still place straps anywhere around the frame through the PolyMax.

I use heavy duty zip ties too, all of the straps gets so expensive. It took me a while, but I got used to it, just making sure to step on top of a frame piece, not a poly span. I also used pieces of wood to shim between two spans (cheaper than fittings) that worked pretty well, but I don't do that any more. Yes, it's nice to be able to strap stuff to it, anywhere you want. But beware if you are doing so in big water and NOT going through/around a frame piece. I've never had carnage that way (and had a Class IV flip) but it seems a bit of a risk. For important stuff (toolbox and camera box), I make sure the strap goes around at least one frame tube.

You could also try doubling it up, to reduce the flexy.

I couldn't find on farmtek...how big are the sheets? Is this the cutting board type material or the chicken flooring I saw on there that has a grid type pattern?

Thanks guys.. I am thinking of using it between the sidrailes on my cat frame. I plan on putting a rocket box on top, I'll be sure to go around the rails with the straps.
