Bloomer Plastics Inc.'s Cast Polypropylene Films are manufactured to customer specifications: Monolayer, Coextruded, and Extrusion Coated to various substrates. We offer multiple emboss patterns, widths from 2.5" to 84", and thicknesses from 1-30 mils. Our PP film is produced in natural and various colors. BPI will perform custom color matches if your application warrants.

We engineer our films to meet your specific needs. View our various PP film typical value sheets to see if our PP Films will work for your application.

Our PP Films are currently used in a variety of markets from Notebook Covers to Food Packaging to the Automotive and Construction industries. PP can be treated for ink adhesion for printing. BPI can corona treat one or both sides of the material to enhance the surface for your application.

Why do our customers choose PP over PE? Cast PP offers some distinct advantages over PE: high crystalline nature, higher heat resistance, greater modulus, increased solvent resistance, superior hydroscopic characteristics, and better dimension stability.
