APET

APET

Plaspro have been proudly producing and supplying first-rate Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate (APET) to satisfied customers for many years.

Its versatility, precision, strength and ability to perform in temperatures ranging from -40c to +70c make it an ideal plastic for many manufacturers. In addition, APET offers excellent clarity, selling itself to those producing packaging and point of sale displays.

APET is a perfect choice for food packaging due to the barrier it provides to liquids and gases, whilst protecting the item’s flavour and aromas.

Produced primarily with a blue tint to give a clear azure colour, Plaspro can also produce APET in other colours should this be required.

Further details will be available soon. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us today or fill in the query form to the right.

HMPP

HMPP

Our HMPP has a primed satin side offering you superior ink adhesion. The glossy, scratch resistant side is corona-treated – to create the adhesion on the plastic surface – which is then guaranteed for six months if it is being used with conventional screen printing and for three months when used for UV screen and Litho printing. You will need to ensure that any ink used in the printing process is suitable for plastic that has been corona-treated.

The plastic can be cut and creased to the required size and shape when at room temperature – if it is too cold, it will become brittle and break when being cut.

The HMPP sheets are degradable by UV light and combustion but are not biodegradable. They should be stored in a dry and shaded environment.

HMPP sheets are developed to replace HiPS when producing horticultural labels in a wet environment. It is not a suitable plastic to use for direct food contact as it does not conform to the required norms.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team today, or fill in the query form to the right.
