Polyethylene


Our polyethylene (PE) sheet and roll stock is a highly versatile material that can be used for a large number of converted products. Our high density polyethylene material offers an exceptional durability, stress crack resistance and is weather resistant.

Our PE extruded material is “graphic quality” and is ideal for printing, including litho, screen and flexo. Polyethylene is completely recyclable and can be reclaimed by most community recycling centers.

Our PE material comes in a variety of surface textures and is available in thicknesses from 0.010 to 0.0125 gauge. We can extrude any PMS opaque color and have several stock colors in a variety of thicknesses.

Polypropylene


Our extruded polypropylene (PP) sheet and roll stock has many of the same characteristics as our polyethylene material. It is a versatile material that can be used for a wide range of applications. Our PP material is durable, impact resistant and weather resistant.

Our polypropylene is “graphic quality” and can be printed similarly to polyethylene. The BIGGEST difference between PE and PP is that our extruded polypropylene can be completely transparent. This is a tremendous benefit when using polypropylene for packaging applications.

Our PP material comes in a variety of surface textures and is available in thicknesses from 0.012 to 0.125 gauge. We can extrude PP clear, as a tint or any PMS opaque color and we have several stock finishes in clear and 7 tints in a variety of thicknesses.

2nd Genesis-Recyclable Polyethylene Material


PolyPrime believes its important to minimize our impact on the planet by re-using reclaimed plastic hence we have developed our 2nd Genesis recycled sheet.  Our 2nd Genesis sheet is extruded polyethylene post-consumer plastic (PE-PCR) from reclaimed milk jugs which can be converted into many applications. Not only is 2nd Genesis good for the environment it is typically less expensive than virgin PE resin.

We can produce this in a natural translucent, tinted translucent and any PMS opaque color.  We can extrude PE-PCR in thicknesses from 0.015 to 0.125 gauge.  PolyPrime inventories 6 stock colors and 6 translucent trend colors in several standard thicknesses.
