PP

POLYPROPYLENE

Polypropylene (PP) offers a diverse set of properties, making it a versatile choice for various applications. Notably, it exhibits superior heat resistance compared to polyethylene (PE). While commonly available in white, clarified grades of PP are also accessible, showcasing exceptional contact clarity. The extensive range of properties offered by PP allows for its utilization in products that demand high impact resistance and long-term dimensional stability, further enhanced by its remarkable chemical resistance.

As the third most extensively produced commodity plastic, after PE, PP finds significant usage in packaging and labeling industries. Its popularity stems from its wide availability and suitability for diverse packaging needs.

PE

POLYETHYLENE

Polyethylene (PE) stands as one of the most extensively manufactured plastics globally. It encompasses different variations such as LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene), LDPE (low density), MDPE (medium density), and HDPE (high density). With its diverse range of grades, polyethylene caters to a broad spectrum of properties, allowing for tailored utilization according to the specific requirements of your packaging.

From providing a soft and flexible composition to delivering a rigid and robust structure, the various grades of polyethylene offer a versatile selection that can be adeptly employed to meet the unique demands of your packaging needs.
