The packaging of any product is crucial to its attraction and its successful sale, as a key component of its branding and presentation. Manufacturers today look for the most creative and practical ways to wrap products of all types so that they can be transported and stored efficiently, and displayed to best advantage.
Mapal is a leading supplier of customized polypropylene sheets for packaging.
These can be cut and creased using all the technologies generally used for cardboard, but they offer many advantages over card in terms of visibility and durability. The sheets can be easily die-cut and hot stamped using conventional machines like Tigel, Bobst and Heidelberg. They can be glued using PUR hot–melt adhesives, or cut and folded into an infinite array of possible shapes.
Mapal has developed Maplon Light as the perfect medium for printed signage and point-of-sale advertising materials. Although these specialist polypropylene sheets are just 2 or 3 millimeters (0.08’ or 0.12’) thick, they punch way above their weight – they are super-light and robust, highly scratch-proof, resistant to heat and chemicals, and 100% opaque.
Maplon Light sheets are designed to meet the specific needs of high impact marketing materials such as printed exhibition boards, signs, POS and POP displays. Because of their high resistance to UV light, Maplon Light sheets are ideally suited to outdoor advertising displays, performing much better than PVC sheets. When you print your marketing and advertising messages on Maplon Light, you can be sure that they will not fade.
Maplon Light sheets can be supplied in extra-large formats – up to 1.22 meters (4’) wide and 2.44 meters (8’) long. They are suitable for either screen or digital printing, and can be embossed using matt or quartz techniques. Unlike PVC, Maplon can be safely cut using lasers. Together with all of Mapal’s PP products, these sheets are environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable.
Mapal produces a range of superior polypropylene sheets that are designed to be printed using digital, off-set, litho and screen-printing methods. These sheets offer a great alternative to paper due to their greater resistance to tearing, water and chemicals.
Maximum Width: 1750 mm Thickness: 150 micron to 3000 micron Embossing Options: Gloss, Sand, Orange, Satin, Diagonal, Pix.
Off-set and Litho Printing - Conventional and UV Mapal’s polypropylene sheets are manufactured with technologies and formulae that maintain the Corona treatment at a high level for at least one year under good storage conditions. A wide range of embossing options is available to meet specific needs.
Digital Printing Hewlett-Packard (HP) approves a number of its Indigo Printers for printing on Mapal sheets. Our polypropylene sheets are specially manufactured to allow good ink adhesion with a one-year shelf life. This provides a cost-effective alternative to other plastics and substrates.
