about polypropylene

Polypropylene is an ideal material for creative and distinctive stationery solutions because of its unlimited potential for design and shape, has extreme versatility for colour, finish and gauge, is lightweight yet impressively sturdy. It is attractive, contemporary and tactile with excellent impact strength. Its high design ability allows for many creative possibilities in shape, contour or to suit brand design including window cut-outs and curves. Because it is highly printable it can be decorated to match corporate brand and campaign graphics.

The polypropylene we use is made in Australia from 100% Australian raw materials.  It is waterproof and ideal for traditional stationery, display and consumer packaging with the added benefits of being food-contact safe with no plasticisers, chlorine, leachable components or heavy metals.

Recycling:  Creative Plastics is an environmentally responsible company and all of our post-production waste polypropylene is recycled and re-used.

Colours and thicknesses: Polypropylene comes in a wide range of colours and thicknesses. It can be transparent or opaque. Our colour chart below indicates colours as well as their closest PMS match.
