A new industrial plastics range from PPB Ltd

close up of plastic sheetsPPB Ltd has launched a new range of industrial plastics, which includes Lumex G (PETG) and Lumex A (APET).

Lumex G is the newest brand on the market for premium modified polyethylene terephthalates (PET-G). It is the best choice for thermoforming and hot line bending applications, says the company. The sheet doesn’t crystallise when thermoformed; and vacuum forming can be done without pre-drying and with significantly shorter cycle times. With a strength of 150 times stronger than that of glass it is 'ideal' for signage, display and POS.

Unlike traditional clear PET-G grades, Lumex G also comes in special finishes from stock such as Dense White, Gloss Black and Opal.

Lumex A is a premium quality amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET) designed for cost effective flat and arched POS/POP and signage applications.Lumex A is available in Anti-Glare and Opal finishes.

Both Lumex G and Lumex A are suitable for screen print and UV digital flat bed printing.

Richard Proctor, Managing Director of PPB, said: “The launch of the new range is already proving successful with substantial quantities of stock sold in the last six months. Our in-house conversion facility, including our Schelling saw and Cauhe guillotine, means we can convert stock sizes to bespoke requirements with a tolerance of plus or minus – 0.5mm accuracy.”
