HDPE - HIGH DENSITY
POLYETHYLENE is a rigid, tough and strong resin of natural milky color. HDPE has
very good stress crack resistance as well as high impact and melt strength. HDPE
is appropriate for personal care, beverages, food and chemicals.
LDPE - LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE
is weaker, tensile strength is lower, and its resilence is higher compared
PP - POLYPROPYLENE is
a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications, including food packaging,
textiles, laboratory equipment, automotive components, and polymer banknotes. It
is unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids and suitable for
“hot filling” packaging.
PET - POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE
is a strong, lightweight plastic resin and form of polyester that closely resembles
glass in clarity and takes colorants well. PET is commonly used in food packaging
due to its strong barrier properties against water vapor, dilute acids, gases, oils
and alcohols. PET is also shatter-resistant, slightly flexible and easy to recycle.
PETG -GLYCOL MODIFIED
POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE is a durable material with an excellent gloss and clarity.
The chemical resistance is fair but testing is highly recommended.
SAN - STYRENE ACRYLONITRILE
RESINS is a combination of Styrene and Acrylonitrile, this combination provides
strong packaging but tends to yellow more quickly
ACRYLIC - Poly(methyl
methacrylate) (PMMA)- very high scratch and impact resistance, does not contain
the potentially harmful bisphenol-A subunits found in polycarbonate, looks like
