MATERIAL DATA SHEET

Single SidedPriplak Polyprop can be digitally printed direct to the face of the material on our large format printers using UV cured inks which offer market leading print quality, robustness and longevity.

Spot WhiteWhen working with colour variations of Priplak Polyprop we can still print direct to surface in full colour underpinning your print with a spot white to ensure it is as vibrant as it would have been if printed on a white sheet.

Spot White (Clear Material) – With clear materials a white ink is often required to add the ability to include white areas of a design or to underpin CMYK printing to give it a denser appearance.

White Flood Priplak Polyprop can be printed with a full coverage white ink layer to back up a colour printed design giving you the appearance of a white background. This is popular when printing in reverse.

Backlit Mode When producing light box graphics, or prints that will be illuminated from behind we can print in backlit mode to increase the saturation of ink to ensure your design retains its intended look and finish.

Priplak and the environment an environmentally sound plastic

Polypropylene offers many advantages due to its composition. It is a polyolefin, and doesn’t contain any halogens, or Chlorine.
It is also free from any plastifiers, such as phtalates, which are often used in the production of PVC. After finishing with a product made from Priplak, the material can be recycled, or burnt or added to landfill, without any risk of toxic substances harming the environment or people’s health.

A recyclable product and a recycled range

During its lifecycle, one of the key features of polypropylene is its ability to be recycled many times without any significant change in its physical properties. Priplak has also embarked on an ambitious scheme to collect some of the waste from larger customers. Together with its physical characteristics this has enabled Priplak to develop a certified range of 100% recycled polypropylene.
