Where We'll Be

This year at NPE2018, Impact Plastics will be debuting our new 903D polypropylene sheet at the Gabler Thermoform Booth, located in the West Hall Level 2, Booth W7763.  Here you can see 903D polypropylene sheet from Impact Plastics run on a high-efficiency thermoforming machine designed to increase thermoforming output by 50% compared to other machines on the market.

Prisma 6810 Bell Peppers 3-527218-editedOur new product, Impact 903D PP sheet is a first-of-its-kind clarified block copolymer PP resin. Produced in partnership with Braskem utilizing their Prisma 6810 resin, 903D PP sheet provides the ultimate balance of properties - offering the stiffness characteristic of a homopolymer, the toughness of an impact copolymer, and the clarity of a random copolymer, all in one single-resin solution. Typical impact copolymers are characterized by a cloudy or milky appearance in their natural state, leaving consumers to sacrifice clarity in order to achieve the balance of properties required for certain applications. But with Impact 903D PP sheet, consumers can now experience the same properties, even at low temperatures, without sacrificing clarity and aesthetics.
