Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET)

Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) is an environmentally responsible material with 25%-100% post-consumer or post-industrial content. RPET paint and wallpaper trays are strong, flexible and tear resistant with an excellent solvent resistant moisture barrier. With 100% trim scrap recovery, RPET features high recyclability.

Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling, plastic parts and reusable containers, laboratory equipment, and automotive components. An additional polymer made from the monomer propylene, it is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids, making it an excellent material for thermoforming paint or wallpaper trays.

High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)

High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a naturally translucent sheet of plastic that forms and die-cuts easily. A wide processing window allows fast, efficient production, making HIPS an economical option with fast processing rates. HIPS offers multi-layer extrusion capabilities for added gloss and surface options or increased barrier properties. Specialty grades are also available for customizing your paint or wallpaper trays.
