RPVC – Reprocessed Rigid Vinyl

This post industrial recycled material is formulated for ease of sealing using traditional radio frequency and ultrasonic technics needed for secure packaging. RPVC is easy to process, very durable and resistant to cracking. Material distribution on deep draw parts is exceptional using proper tooling techniques.  Material can often be down gauged over materials because of its strength. Available in clear, black and white in thickness from 10 to 60 mils. Complete line of three types of Static Control products include Static Dissipative, Washable Static Dissipative and Low Charging Antistat. End uses include consumer packaging, clamshell, blister & specialty applications.

APET – Prime Grade Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate 

APET is virgin grade clear material used in speciality applications where aesthetics and superior functionality are critical. End uses include convenience food containers and medical packaging.

RPET – Reprocessed Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate 

This clear material comes from plastic reclaimed through the recycling stream, such as plastic bottles from post consumer curbside recycling and post industrial flake from a variety of manufacturing processes. The quality of RPET has greatly improved over the years and is often preferred over prime grade PET because of its consistency. RPET is the go to material for many applications because of its low cost and availability. Complete line of three types of Static Control products include Static Dissipative, Washable Static Dissipative and Low Charging Antistat. Available in thickness from 12 to 60 mils. End uses include consumer packaging, clamshell, blister, food containers, lids & dunnage trays.

PLA  – Polylactic Acid 

This biopolymer is made from annually renewable resources such as dextrose derived from plants. Ingeo requires less non-renewable energy in its manufacturing process. End uses include natural and organic food packaging and other applications requiring excellent flavor and aroma barrier.

RPETG – Reprocessed Glycolized Amorphous Polyethylene

Is a glycol enhanced 100% recycled copolyester available in clear, blue tint and custom colors. Known best for its fast cycle times and ease of formability. RPETG is a common cost effective choice among processors. End markets include packaging and dunnage trays.

HIPS – Prime Grade High Impact Polystyrene 

Is a vesatile material with a wide range of product choices. Lowest industry minimums on custom color matches and many assorted surface finishes including smooth, matte, high gloss, sandblast, sandgrain, haircell, morocco and more. Available in both roll and sheet formats in thicknesses from .010" to .250". Many uses include signage, point of purchase displays, printing & thermoforming applications.

UHIPS – Utility Grade High Impact Polystyrene 

When cost and sustainability is a consideration, Utility HIPS is often the material of choice. Not a product produced from prime resin sources. The quality continues to be excellent. Formability is much better because of heat history and most noticable when produced with a blend of prime and recycled content.  A good choice for those non critical applications for bedding packs & propagation trays, 

PP  – Prime Grade & Utility Grade Polypropylene 

An ultimate choice for those demanding food processing applications. Available in both copolymer and monopolyer product types with both Talc or Calcium enhanced fillers. 

TPO – Thermoplastic Olefin

TPO is an oleofin based elastomer, similar in properties to PE and PP in terms of chemical resistance, but with a much higher content of rubber and other compounds which make it much more flexible and elastic. TPO is an ideal choice for gaskets, seals, roofing membranes, stamping and die cut applications. TPO is thermoformable and easy to pigment.

LDPE – Low Density Polyethylene

LDPE is very resistant to chemicals, similarly to HDPE, but it has a much lower density and it is much more flexible and resilient. Often used in packaging, trays, and other parts that need to be soft and pliable.

HDPE – High Density Polyethylene

HDPE is extremely resilient and impact resistant. it is also resistant to extremely low temperatures (whereas other plastics like styrene become very brittle) and it is impervious to many chemicals and corrosives,it’s low-moisture absorbent and it’s non-toxic. Often used in liners, containers, trays, liquid and chemicals storage and tanks, hockey arenas, agricultural applications and many more.

HMWPE – High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

High molecular weight polyethylene performs well under the most rigorous conditions of wear and environment . It has the highest known impact strength of any thermoplastic currently available. It has a very low coefficient of friction and extremely low moisture absorption. It is easily machined, sawed, milled, turned, planed, drilled or punched. Often used in wear surfaces, impact surfaces, liners and non-stick surfaces. HMWPE offers a diversity of usage in tough applications in a wide range of industries.

ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

ABS is a modified form of styrene with outstanding impact strength and high mechanical strength. It is much more rigid, and is the product of choice for applications where toughness is required. It is commonly used in permanent displays, thermoforming, signs, machine guards, and more. ABS is naturally glossy, although dull grades are available as well. Available in flame retardant grade.
