Translucent polypropylene is a very popular material for making covers for broschures, folders, student term papers or presentations. The wide colour range allows you to easily distinguish among different documents. The somewhat rough surface does not show up fingerprints and lends it a kind of restrained elegance. It is very easy to make a folder out of PP film by simply cutting and folding it. When used as a hinge-joint it is practically indefatigable. These sheets of PP can also be used as packing material and as decoration.
Light objects or lamps made from translucent polypropylene sheets are especially beautiful: the material allows a great deal of light through it and gives off an elegant glow. The range of colours available provides the means for creating a wide variety of mood lighting. Care should be taken when making lamps that there is enough ventilation for the fixture and enough distance between the light (heat source) and the film because PP is itself only heat resistant to a limited degree.
Cutting PP sheets can be done especially well using a GUILLOTINE PAPER CUTTER or fly cutter but good results can be obtained with a blade and straight edge as well. The sheets can be stamped using normal punching tools. Making a groove for a hinge or a fold should be done with a round groove knife (e.g. a FOLDING BONE) working on an even, solid substrate.
