XPP-M for PS & PVC Replacement


Polystyrene and PVC have historically been the material of choice for a vast range of medical and pharmaceutical packaging applications - from diagnostic kits and sterile barrier trays, to form-fill-seal unit-dosing pods, and much more. But lack of recycling options and sustainability challenges, health and safety concerns regarding presence of certain materials in PS and PVC, and the rising cost of materials, have sent OEM medical companies and converters in search of alternatives.

XPP Medical Solutions for safe, sustainable PS & PVC replacement. ICPG’s XPP™ polypropylene is a revolutionary mono-material rollstock solution that maintains all of the positive attributes of current PS and PVC materials – processing, function, safety, quality, cost – in the form of a more sustainable and recyclable solution that offers drop-in process compatibility for PS & PVC replacement made easy. 

Explore the benefits of switching to XPP-M including: 

  • Drop-in process compatibility in thermoforming & FFS
  • Improved OTR & MVTR barrier performance
