Get a preview of what you can expect to see from us at Luxe Pack NYC this year and be sure to visit us at booth B106!

Polypropylene Parts

This year at the forefront of our exhibit Impact Plastics will be highlighting the benefits of using polypropylene sheet. PP is a versatile material that can be used in thermoforming processes for a variety of end use markets. A strong and lightweight material, this plastic also has excellent temperature resistance, allowing for use in both hot and cold food applications. PP sheet is produced in a wide range of sizes, custom colors, tints and finishes and can be blended with mineral fillers such as calcium carbonate and talc. In addition, by switching to PP, consumers can experience up to a 30% yield on pounds purchased over polymers like PET, so you get more parts from the same amount of material! What’s not to love?

UltraClear PP Parts

If you read our blog you know how much we love our UltraClear polypropylene and this year at Luxe Pack NYC will mark this product’s introduction to the luxury packaging markets. Available in dazzling clear and custom clear tints, this material offers consumers an aesthetically pleasing product with increased efficiencies and sustainability attributes. Now with UltraClear PP, consumers can take advantage of the benefits inherent to PP without sacrificing consumer appeal with a beautiful packaging material that will really make your product shine!

Custom Color Calcium Carbonate Filled Polypropylene Parts

This year at Luxe Pack we will be exhibiting a product that brings with it a focus on sustainability. Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) filled PP offers a sustainable and cost efficient solution to polystyrene products for the cosmetics and fragrance industries. Using calcium carbonate filled PP sheet can displace petrochemicals by up to 40%, resulting in a product with a lower carbon footprint. In addition, studies have shown that using a 40% loaded calcium carbonate filled product can generate Green House Gas savings of up to 25%. This product is available in a variety of custom colors.

Custom Color HIPS & Flock Styrene

Flock Tex Flock Styrene.jpgImpact Plastics has been supplying high impact polystyrene (HIPS) in custom colors and finishes to the cosmetics and fragrance industry for decades. A versatile material, HIPS offers easy processing and is available in virtually any color under the sun. In addition, this material offers excellent impact resistance and stiffness to keep delicate products safe.

For many years, Impact Plastics has partnered with Flock Tex as the supplier of the HIPS substrate used in Flock Styrene from Flock Tex, a unique and highly customizable luxury packaging material that will set your product apart. This year, in addition to the custom color flock materials, Flock Tex will be exhibiting glitter flock and European suede flock styrene products. 

Flock Polypropylene

Offering an alternative to the traditional Flock Styrene that has become synonymous with luxury packaging in the cosmetics and fragrance markets, this year Flock Tex will be exhibiting a Flock PP. This flock PP will enable customers to continue to experience the luxurious look and feel of a flock material, while taking advantage of the increased yield and cost savings associated with making the switch from polystyrene to PP.
