High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)

By and large, HIPS is used for in-store packaging for products such as cosmetics, over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, and tools. It's aesthetic makes it ideal for products that require opaque black, white, natural or colors. For retailers, HIPS’s dimensional strength is also helpful as it is highly tamper resistant.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

PVC is one of the most common thermoform plastics in the industry. PVC is an affordable, lightweight, and durable plastic solution for a multitude of uses. PVC is exceptionally easy to fabricate, bond, and weld. When the project specifications demand a certain aesthetic, we can make it as clear as glass or colorful.

Polyethylene Terephthalate (APET/RPET)

PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) is used for disposable plastic containers and frozen-food containers. It’s available in both APET (“virgin” form) or in RPET (recycled form). PET is popular because it is highly recyclable and provides a strong oil barrier which helps prevent chemicals from attacking the plastic. It is used for disposable plastic containers, retail packaging, and food packaging. PET can be completely clear or colorful.

Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG)

While PETG often carries a higher price point than PET, it has exceptional thermoforming characteristics and is easier to die cut. Plus, PETG has fantastic impact resistance for highly-detailed components that demand structural integrity. PETG is often used in the medical vertical as it is FDA compliant.

  • Chemical resistant
  • Deep draw thermoforming
  • Easy to die cut
  • Impact resistance
  • Machinable
  • FDA compliant

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

In the same family as PET, HDPE is known for its durability and strength. While not clear like PET, it can be color matched and is most popular natural. HDPE is FDA approved and can withstand a broad range of temperatures (-110 to 167° F).
