Thank you Novolex – The plastic to make more face shields has arrived! @Novolex @MakeitLabs @NYCmakesPPE #MakersHelpingNYC #NewYorkStrong #NewYorkTough

Thank you Novolex for the plastic donation so our team at Adafruit as well as teams in NYC can continue manufacturing face shields for the NYC area and beyond. The plastic that is needed for the face shield became nearly impossible to source, Novolex’s high quality plastic is here, and we’re able to resume production as well as other groups.

From everyone at Adafruit, and the NYC region, thank you Novolex.

“Novolex is privileged to donate the plastic sheet desperately needed for the production of face shields to protect healthcare and other first responders as they tackle the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Novolex Vice President of Public Affairs, Phil Rozenski. “Individual face shields will be cut from up to one ton rolls of transparent polyethylene produced at Novolex manufacturing centers and affixed onto head harnesses at assembly points across the country. Our 10,000 employee families are thrilled to be part of this effort.”
