Polypropylene Sheets

Polypropylene (PP) is a member of the environmentally-friendly polyolefin family. Like its sister HDPE, polypropylene’s electrical properties, chemical and temperature resistance makes it a terrific choice for many industrial applications. Polypropylene has exceptional contact clarity, and resists distortion in lower gauges, which makes it ideal for applications that require heat sealing, like packaging materials, boxes, binders, and portfolios.

In addition to the stock sizes and finishes we carry, our PP sheeting can be produced to match specific colors, thicknesses and finishes.
