Primex Announces Prime Bubble-X™ Board for Printing and Containers

Primex has announced the release of its Prime Bubble-X™, a unique air-bubble co-extruded polypropylene board designed with a print-friendly matte surface on both sides. This innovative technology provides printers and retailers with a lightweight substrate that is strong, extremely rigid and moisture and chemical resistant for use both indoors and in extreme outdoor weather conditions.

Bubble-X is ideal for point of purchase displays, signs, mail totes, sleeve packs and other types of containers which require high strength to weight ratios and enhanced printability when compared to corrugated plastic and paper boards. Bubble-X is made from 100 percent recyclable polypropylene through Primex’s exclusive extrusion process and comes in a variety of colors, gauges from three to five millimeters and widths up to 60 inches.

“Our multi-layer sheet extrusion process allows us to tailor the sheet properties based on the end user’s needs,” said Dan Purpura, process development engineering manager for Primex Plastics. Additional properties and characteristics can be added during production to meet customer specifications.
