- Due to much higher than usual demand for polypropylene sheets, some lines are now in short supply.
- We are unsure when normal supply will resume, for some lines it may be months before they are back in stock.
- We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
These 0.8mm 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 fine sand finish and the other has a sand finish.
The 0.8mm 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.
- Flexible opaque sheets.
- Can be printed on.
- Laser cutter safe.
- Suitable for a wide range of D&T applications.
- 1 x Polypropylene Sheet 0.8mm x 1100mm x 650mm.

- Please note that there can be a colour variation between batches and product lines of these sheets as part of the manufacturing process.

Thank you for your question, the sheets are 1100mm x 650mm.
Thank you for your question, we can indeed ship to Cyprus, it does vary based on the service selected but likely 2-4 working days.
Thank you for your question, I am afraid we do not at present, we do sell frosted sheets but not in black.
Thank you for you question, it is slightly hard to advise on that I am afraid. Polypropylene is not conductive but can respond to heat and we have not tested it with 480V so hard for me to advise.
I am wondering if the fine sanded sides of these sheets are smooth enough to serve as a semi-dry erase board. That is, I know it won't be perfect as a dry erase, so I'll have acetone and/or glass cleaner handy to erase smudges. I am interested in the aqua blue specifically.
Also, the color of the sheet in the accompanying pictures and videos does not appear to be "aqua blue" per se. At least as defined by internet images. Are the images and video still up to date regarding the color of this product?
Thank you for your questions, I have trialled with some of our board markers on some scrap pieces of polypropylene and with a little acetone and wipes the board pens I used came off quite easily so I think that should work.
As ever there is always a slight disconnect in colour of items on a screen compared to real life those sheets reasonably match that. I believe we titled it as Aqua blue to try and differentiate it obviously from our 0.5mm Dark Blue Sheet to try and flag it was a different colour to customers.
Many Thanks Terry
Thank you for your question, I am afraid we have not tested this sheet with Epoxy resin so I would recommend testing a small piece first. However, based on what I know of these sheets and epoxy this should work but would still recommend testing first.
Thank you for your question, I am afraid not they need to be labelled for holding in our stores as we hold other thicknesses that are very similar.
We do stock this material on the link below you can find the various styles of polypropylene we stock. Pleas be aware this material is not black out but it has been used in a fair number of lamp shade projects.
Please let me know asap :D
Hi, you should be able to print on either side of the material, so yes it could be double sided. However it is unlikely to work in a normal laser printer. The recommended printing methods are Offset Printer, Screen Printing or Sublimation Printing.
Hi Rhona, The product was original stated as a clear material, however after an issue with the material we discovered that the material isn’t guaranteed to be completely clear, as such this product was altered to reflect this updated information. As such this is the same product that was previously listed as clear, the change now better suits the product we stock.
Hello Vanessa, 350 micron is equal to 0.35mm as such this sheet would be 800 micron. The thinnest sheet we stock is 0.5mm or 500 micron, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/materials/polypropylene.html?cat=222
Can you tell if I could use this to make flowers, as in Foamiran, touching it to an iron to make it curl a little Thank you.
(as in this video)
Hello Jay, I don’t believe this would be suitable. I think if you put an iron onto the material it would just melt and not curl.
I am hoping to make a flexible box for photography. How would you form folds and creases and would you think it would be strong enough to hold a small smart phone or tablet on top?
Hi Carmen, the polypropylene can be folded using a Cold and hot creasing technique, depending on the thickness. It should be fairly rigid so should be able to take a small amount of weight. It would be worth testing it first to make sure what its maximum load is.
We don’t have a particular glue that we recommended for this product, however you would need to ensure it is safe to use with polypropylene, the datasheet states, ‘ViPrint can be glued with PUR glue or hot melt, although welding is the preferred option’.
I don’t believe this product would turn yellow or frosted with the elements although the full effects of prolonged expose isn’t known. Also we don’t know of a direct method of fixing the sheets to a metal roof, although if you wanted to use an adhesive you would need to ensure this is safe to use on polypropylene. You are able to drill the material very easily.
According to the manufacture the product has been used for vacuum forming, however they do not recommend that it is used as the product doesn’t function well under this manufacturing process
This product would be suitable for this use as it is a flexible but durable material. You could easily cut this into strips and overlap them using a sharp knife or scissors. This is however the largest sheet size we stock, and also the thickest we do.
1)is food or drink ok to consume if it touches the plastic.?
2)Does the plastic have any strong smell as if water touches it will the water change in smell or taste?
3)I was looking for roughly 2 meter by 2 meter. Is that possible. (A)If yes how much will it be including postage.(B) If not what's the largest size u do and how much is it.
4)If I need any holes inside will you b able to do it and will there b an additional cost. If yes how much. Thank you
I have spoken to our supplier regarding if this product is safe to be used in a food environment. They have confirmed that this product is safe to use and be in contact with food, however neither ourselves nor our supplier have a certificate to state that it is food safe. The largest sheet size we stock is the one listed on the website of 1100mmX650mm.
Yes it is possible to cut this polypropylene sheet with a sharp knife, such as a stanley knife.
I have a clear piece of glass measuring: Length 11" and the with is 60"
I have Blue sheet of regular construction paper that I plan to place as a back ground bellow the glass. I would like to know if you have for sale a sheet of Perspex that I can place on top of the Blue sheet of the construction paper that will give it the illusion of subtle waves on water.
Or if you have a product that I can purchase from you that I can place under my piece of glass that will give it the appearance of a sky Blue, subtle waves. I have a few small ships that will go on top of my glass to give he "illusion" of small boats on a sky blue river. Please advice. Thank you kindly.
The only Perspex we do are smooth sheets, for the effect you are after you would need a textured sheet of Perspex which unfortunately we don’t stock.
Yes it is possible to laser etch, however depending on the power and speed you set the laser cutter to, depends on the outcome. After a few trial runs we have worked out a lower power and lower speed option is best, 20% power and 25 speed give a nice outcome on the product.
I have checked this and the sheets are fine to be used with the sublimation printing method.
I have checked with our suppliers and this product doesn’t have a UL94 rating as it hasn’t been tested. They have stated that most polypropylene has a low UL94 rating.
