These Translucent 0.8mm Polypropylene Sheets are suitable for a wide range of D&T applications. These translucent sheets have a high light transmission and a smooth finish.

The 0.8mm gauge makes the sheets flexible and therefore ideal for products requiring a curved finish. The surfaces of the sheets are treated to make them suitable for printing (including sublimation printing). They are also static treated to minimise dust attraction.

Polypropylene sheets are often used to make products such as office stationery, folders, files, covers, signs, lamps, lightings, jewellery, fashion accessories, etc.

Working with Polypropylene:

These Polypropylene sheets can be cut safely on a laser cutter (please note the edges will be slightly 'burred' and do not appear 'polished' like Perspex) and unlike PVC they do not create any chlorine gas. The sheets can also be cut using a sharp knife. You can crease the material using a cold or hot creasing technique. The resulting 'hinges' can be folded many times without the material breaking.

Features:

  • High light transmission.
  • Flexible translucent sheets.
  • Can be printed on.
  • Laser cutter safe.
  • Suitable for a wide range of D&T applications.

    Hi Rhona, The product was original stated as a clear material, however after an issue with the material we discovered that the material isn’t guaranteed to be completely clear, as such this product was altered to reflect this updated information. As such this is the same product that was previously listed as clear, the change now better suits the product we stock.

    Hi Carmen, the polypropylene can be folded using a Cold and hot creasing technique, depending on the thickness. It should be fairly rigid so should be able to take a small amount of weight. It would be worth testing it first to make sure what its maximum load is.

    We don’t have a particular glue that we recommended for this product, however you would need to ensure it is safe to use with polypropylene, the datasheet states, ‘ViPrint can be glued with PUR glue or hot melt, although welding is the preferred option’.

    I don’t believe this product would turn yellow or frosted with the elements although the full effects of prolonged expose isn’t known. Also we don’t know of a direct method of fixing the sheets to a metal roof, although if you wanted to use an adhesive you would need to ensure this is safe to use on polypropylene. You are able to drill the material very easily.

    According to the manufacture the product has been used for vacuum forming, however they do not recommend that it is used as the product doesn’t function well under this manufacturing process

    We are currently awaiting a delivery from our supplier, normally any items that are ordered while out of stock will be placed on back order, and this will then be dispatched once in stock. We would expect this product to be back in stock in around 5 working days as long as our supplier has stock of the item.

    Unfortunately we wouldn’t be able to supply this product in that size as the sheets come in pre-cut to us. We also wouldn’t be able to order the sheet in at the size you require. Apologise that we are unable to help with this request.

    This product would be suitable for this use as it is a flexible but durable material. You could easily cut this into strips and overlap them using a sharp knife or scissors. This is however the largest sheet size we stock, and also the thickest we do.

    I have spoken to our supplier regarding if this product is safe to be used in a food environment. They have confirmed that this product is safe to use and be in contact with food, however neither ourselves nor our supplier have a certificate to state that it is food safe. The largest sheet size we stock is the one listed on the website of 1100mmX650mm.
