These White 0.5mm Polypropylene Sheets are suitable for a wide range of D&T applications. These opaque sheets have a high opacity considering they are made from a relatively thin material. One surface of the sheet has a satin (very smooth) finish and the other has a slightly more coarse sand emboss finish.
The 0.5mm gauge makes the sheets flexible and therefore ideal for products requiring a curved finish. The surfaces of the sheets are treated to make them suitable for printing (including sublimation printing). They are also static treated to minimise dust attraction.
Polypropylene sheets are often used to make products such as office stationery, folders, files, covers, signs, lamps, lightings, jewellery, fashion accessories, etc.
Working with Polypropylene:
These Polypropylene sheets can be cut safely on a laser cutter (please note the edges will be slightly 'burred' and do not appear 'polished' like Perspex) and unlike PVC they do not create any chlorine gas. The sheets can also be cut using a sharp knife. You can crease the material using a cold or hot creasing technique. The resulting 'hinges' can be folded many times without the material breaking.

Thank you for your question, I would say it wasn't that scratch resistant. You can cut these sheets pretty easily with a sharp knife or guillotine so you would likely cut through pretty quickly.
I'm looking for vac form sheets I can sublimated first. Is this the best product? Thanks
Thank you for your question, these sheets can be sublimated and vacuum formed so this would be your best option that we stock.
Thank you for your question, you need a sublimation printer to print onto polypropylene. This is basically a printer that applies the dyes with heat. You do need to have a printer able to perform sublimation printing and specific dyes and inks for it but you can normally easily google to find out if your printer is capable of this. Obviously polypropylene is also stiffer than paper so it would also need to be a printer capable of printing onto something like card.
We don’t have any data to show how it would cope with the elements, it may become brittle or the colour may fade. Depending on the extremes in weather that the sheet would be exposed to would depend on how long the material would last. Also it would depend on how you wanted to fix it to the wall, a glue that is suitable for use outside and can be used with Polypropylene would be the most suitable option.
