Care should be taken in selecting the most suitable quality for each application. Advice is available but final responsibility remains with the customer.

If you don’t see a product suitable for your requirements above please contact our sales office, as alternatives may be available.

Our economy grades are made to a very high standard with similar properties to the standard grades. They have a lower base polymer content, so can sometimes be used as a cheaper solution in less exacting applications.

Operating Temperatures

In today’s competitive market yields are of vital importance. With the above in mind we have a policy of stocking a wide range of thicknesses and roll widths to give our customers maximum choice with clear tolerance definitions.
