FAQ’s


What is Polyolefin?

A polyolefin is a type of polymer produced from a simple olefin as a monomer. For example, polyethylene is the polyolefin produced by polymerizing the olefin ethylene. Polypropylene is another common polyolefin which is made from the olefin propylene.

Is Polyolefin toxic?

Polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) make up over half of the +150 million metric tons of thermoplastics demanded worldwide (with PE accounting for nearly two-thirds of all POs), and both plastics are acceptably safe.

Is Polyolefin a thermoplastic?

Thermoplastic olefin (TPO), thermoplastic polyolefin or olefinic thermoplasticelastomers refer to polymer/filler blends usually consisting of some fraction of athermoplastic, an elastomer or rubber, and usually a filler- TPO is used extensively in the automotive industry.

Is Polyolefin food safe?

There are no harmful chemicals, additives or by products that can be absorbed by the contents and therefore consumed by the user of the packaging. Polyolefins are extremely safe in contact with food. Polyolefins are safe to use at ambient temperatures.

Are Polyolefins recyclable?

Polyolefin raw materials are cost-effective. Their densities are the lowest of all plastics – meaning more products per kilogram of material. Polyolefins are successfully recycled into new plastic products. Polyolefins recycling rates can increase if consumers separate their recyclables from the rest of their waste.

What does HDPE stand for?

HDPE stands for high density polyethylene which is an exceptionally durable plastic. Mostly known for it’s strength to density ratio and it is resistant to all types of weather conditions such as rain, ice, snow and salt.

What does PP stand for?

Polypropylene is a popular choice among those seeking high temperature resistance, high corrosion resistance and excellent tensile strength. Polypropylene sheet stands up very well to heat and wear, while proving exceptional performance in applications such as structural tanks for chemicals, machine parts, cutting boards etc.

What does HMW stand for?

HMWPE is a High Molecular Weight Polyethylene sheet. It boasts excellent impact strength & stress crack resistance and is more economical than standard UHMW. It is a top pick for wear applications and machined parts.

Are your products UV protected?

Our plastic sheet is available with a UV inhibitor which expands the life of the product for outdoor applications.

How do I clean plastic sheet?

Just simply use lukewarm water and soap with a soft cloth, or sponge. We do not recommend any abrasive cleaners, or materials which can scratch or scuff the finish.

Can the finish be painted?

Due to the durability of the material it will never need painting, staining or sealing. The colour penetrates all the way through the material.

What tools can be used to cut plastic?

Plastic sheet cuts easily with any type of saw such as circular, panel saws or CNC Router.

Can you custom cut anything?

Yes, as long as you provide a DXF file with your drawing we can custom cut any project.
