Rigid Plastics

UFP Technologies has access to an array of rigid plastics we utilize to create custom packaging for consumer goods via thermoforming.

APET
Amorphous polyester material, rigid and clear, typically used for high volume, thin gauge packaging.

PETE
Polyethylene Terephthalate is clear, tough, and has excellent gas and moisture barrier properties. It's commonly used in soft drink bottles, injection molded consumer product containers, and both food and non-food containers.

PETG
A clear, tough, thermoplastic material that is easy to thermoform. It is ideal for medical applications because it stands up to radiation and chemical sterilization techniques without changing color.

ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Stryrene)
A thermoplastic known for lightness, rigidity and moldability. It comes in conductive and anti-static grades.

Kydex®
A brand of thermoplastic products from Kleerdex Company, LLG. It's an extremely durable combination of acrylic and PVC that can be formed or molded into a range of thicknesses and grades. Advantages include rigidity, impact strength, light weight and chemical resistance.
