HIPEX® G are extruded polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PET-G) sheets, which are characterized by good optical properties, easy processability and very good impact resistance. Moreover, HIPEX® G sheets are flame retardant rated ”difficult-to-ignite” (Fire behavior according to EN 13501-1: B-s1, d0), are suitable for food applications and can be printed with UV curing inks.

Especially for applications in the field of vacuum forming and thermoforming, HIPEX® G sheets are the best choice as they don't crystallize and can be processed without pre-drying (time and energy saving). Thanks to its easy formability, the material offers designers and fabricators various possibilities, from simple shapes to complex constructions.

The sheets are available with or without UV protection and in addition to the clear and opal white versions also in a variety of colours and design patterns.

HIPEX® G sheets are suitable e.g. for all kinds of glazing (bus shelters, posters, machines), for medical appliance packaging, displays and signs for interior and exterior use as well as for three-dimensional POS/POP displays.

Recycled content

We are already recovering and reusing our own production waste to create new material in the manufacture of HIPEX® sheets, and we aim to continue increasing the proportion of recycled regrind content in the future.

All raw materials used in our HIPEX® sheets comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, HIPEX® sheets are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).

Fossil CO2 bond in the material

HIPEX® sheets contain fossil carbon as the raw material Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is used in their manufacture.

Product life cycle

Our HIPEX® product family comprises Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), a durable thermoplastic. In addition to good long-term properties, this material provides excellent resistance to chemicals, especially our HIPEX®A (A-PET) version. In accordance with EN ISO 13501-1, both HIPEX® A and HIPEX® G sheets are also classified as "B-s1,d0" and are rated "difficult-to-ignite". The HIPEX® version featuring UV protection offers good weather resistance and these sheets can also be used in outdoor applications for periods of several years. HIPEX®A sheets are sturdy and robust with a high impact strength even at temperatures as low as minus 20°C.

Recyclability

The whole HIPEX® product family can be sorted into individual types for recycling and reuse. HIPEX® A can be disposed of in category 1 (PET) plastic waste in the same way as, for example, PET plastic bottles, meaning it is extremely suitable for recycling. At 3A Composites, we are committed to processing our production waste within the company and using it again to manufacture new products.
