Identifying an unmet need in the all-terrain vehicle market, the industrial design team at the Soucy group demonstrated innovation and initiative in designing a UHMW-PE plow (ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene).

The Need

By comparing the properties of plastic to metal characteristics, the Soucy group industrial design team, in close collaboration with the Soucy Plastiques team, recognized a need in the market for an ATV high-density plastic plow.

The Challenge

The engineering team had to employ all of its expertise to push back the limits of this material. The lack of specifications and models could have been an obstacle, but the design team overcame this difficulty by creating, without preconception, an unquestionably innovative product.

The Solution and its Advantages

The composition of the UHMW-PE plow allows the implementation of a more complex and detailed industrial design, which is therefore more effective. Soucy Plastiques has created a product that is becoming a reference point in the industry.

  • Lightness
  • Flexibility
  • Shock absorption, which results in a smoother ride
  • No permanent deformation (regains its shape)
  • Easy installation and operation
  • Snow, mud or any other material do not stick to the plow
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Unlimited combination of colours and patterns
