BLISTER / VACUUM FORMING TRAYS MADE WITH
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most commonly used thermoplastic polymers in the world (next to only a few more widely used plastics like PETand PP). PVC has been around longer than most plastics having been first synthesized in 1872
HIPS – High Impact Polystyrene
It is a tough, rigid plastic material with high impact strength that can be guillotined, punched, routered or sawn easily, and is readily available in a wide variety of colours. Used widely for toys, packaging, signs, kicking plates, display and point of sale. If you are looking for a particular coloured plastic with good impact properties then HIPS is a first choice material. Polystyrene is particularly suitable for thermoforming meaning various shapes and objects can be produced from this material.
Some of the more commonly discussed plastics when searching for solutions for packaging. Unlike other types of plastics, is considered safe and is represented with the number “1” in the recycling world, indicating it is a safe option. These plastics are a type of thermoplastic polymer resin, useful in various applications including containers containing food and in thermoforming applications.
