Polypropylene (PP) is a highly-versatile material which is an excellent option for a wide range of applications in food and beverage packaging and containers. Polypropylene is a very widely-used material that is strong, rigid, durable, and resistant to heat, grease, sugar, acids, and more. These properties make PP a fantastic choice for many retail, foodservice, and food manufacturing and processing applications.
Applications for Polypropylene
Mullinix’s polypropylene materials are ideal when microwaveable or reheatable options are required, and it is also an excellent, cost-effective option for beverage cold cups and food trays. We produce a broad range of stock PP trays, deli containers, and cold cups in polypropylene, along with a full range of custom and made-to-orders sizes. PP products can be specified in clear, translucent, and opaque colors such as black and white.
Mullinix can modify polypropylene with fillers to enable a weight reduction of up to 25% without compromising strength or functional performance. We also have the ability to produce products with multiple layers to boost barrier properties, extend shelf life, and enhance supply chain and consumer experience in food manufacturing and processing applications.
