Primary Materials


Our Polyethylene and Polypropylene are members of the Polyolefin family of plastics. FORMflex polyolefin's are extremely durable with a multitude of applications. It is important to understand the advantages of polyolefin's, some of their more common applications, and with whom you should pursue polyolefin's as the material of choice. Plastic is, by far, the most widely used material for domestic packaging applications. Contrary to what some may believe, a high acceptance level of plastics already exists with both graphic and package designers, as well as within the general public. Recent trends demonstrate a growing preference toward plastics for all packaging, and especially for those requiring decoration. The ease with which these materials can be recycled by the individual consumer not only protects the environment, but also increases their desirability. The ability to add post-consumer recycled content to our polyethylene has made it a material of choice for many of our customers. Special additives, ABS, Styrene and high molecular weight materials are also available upon request.
