Thin Plastic Sheets - PVC & POLYPROPYLENE

Thin Plastic Sheets - A great colour range!

There are three ranges of thin plastic sheets thickness 1.5mm and below (1.5mm=0.06"= 1/16th inch approx). They are PVC, Polypropylene and Polystyrene.
To look at the High IMPACT Polystyrene click here. Please note that this is not a foamed Polystyrene. It is a solid plastic.

Polystyrene flexible but not as repeatedly able to survive flexing and creasing as Polypropylene or PVC. Polypropylene can be repeatedly folded many times before failure. Polystyrene would probably snap after several flexings unless very thin!

To look at the availability of PVC and Polypropylenes please carry on looking down this page.

Cutting, printing & shaping.


We can cut these by guillotine or by a shaped knife into almost any shape you need.

Printing: The thin Polypropylene sheets can be are treated on both sides to give improved printing adhesion. This treatment remains effective from the date of production for 6 months. Our range is not guarantee suitable for printing unless you obtain a certified corona production date label. Some litho inks can be used with the corona treatment in effect. Some Litho and Screen printing inks are acceptable but Litho inks with a high mineral oil base should be avoided. Test them first. Vegetable / Soya based inks are usually suitable. Film lamination sealing is recommended if they are in contact with any Litho printed surface. They can be Hot Foil Blocked. Brass or steel block is preferred.

The thin Polypropylene sheets can be creased at room temperature up about 1400 microns. They can also be punched, perforated, welded and sewn.

PVC - please ask if there is any technical data you require.

Thin Plastic Sheets - PVC & POLYPROPYLENE Only

You can also cllick POLYSTYRENE as it has a good colour range but is harder and does not bend as much or fold like Polypropylene.


Colours, Finishes & Size availability.

The colours shown represent the closest match we can show on a website. They are not exact as lighting, reprographic methods and different producers cause considerable variation.

PVC - There is no colour chart, as availability chart below shows, they only come in White, and Clear Gloss & Matt. We can supply Black PVC from 1mm thickness.


This range of colours is less extensive but less expensive than the PRIME RANGE below. The colours and finishes are very similar but not identical. If you choose a colour from this range then try and stay choosing in this range as it is more expensive to mix ranges.
