It all starts with polypropylene granules


The principal component of PRIPLAK® is polypropylene in the
form of granules. Before this material was invented, the gaseous
residue from oil was burned at a pure loss. It is now recovered
to produce polypropylene, thus helping limit pollution of the
atmosphere. The granules are fed into an extruder where they
are melted, mixed and homogenised. The paste obtained then
passes between cylinders where it is flattened, then cooled
and cut into sheets.


Flexibility plus


Priplak®’s qualities and extreme ease of handling offer considerable conversion possibilities.

It can be printed using screen, UV inkjet or UV litho processes. It can also be decorated using hot foil and tampography.

Corona treatment for better print quality
PRIPLAK® sheets are treated on both sides, with an electric arc that oxidises the surface of the material.
This fine invisible layer improves the adhesion of inks suitable for printing on polypropylene.

It can be cut and creased using standard carton board platens. 
Priplak can be sewn, stapled, welded, glued, screwed, clipped, riveted or even sculpted – designers love the material as it allows them a great deal of creative freedom.They play on rounded or pyramid shapes, on transparency, superimposition of colours, and use tactile effects by integrating accessories such as beads, buttons or fabric trimmings.

Myriad of advantages for creative packaging and innovative advertising.
