This translucent white PP has an especially fine frosted surface that was specially developed for UV offset printing and, in order to achieve a better colour adherence, it is also corona treated on both sides. This material is especially good for use in making light fixtures or other types of lighting objects: it allows a great deal of light to pass though it and gives off an elegant shine. Care should be taken in such uses 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. This PP (as well as POLYPROPYLENE TRANSLUCENT, MOTHER-OF-PEARL COLOUR) is more opaque than the other versions of this material.
Translucent polypropylene is a very popular material for making covers for broschures, folders, student term papers or presentations. 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.
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.
