Plastic products we cover

Product overview:

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

ABS is a thermoplastic polymer known for its strength, toughness, and impact resistance. It’s a copolymer made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadiene. Its ease of molding and superior surface finish make it a popular choice in both industrial and consumer products.


Ethylene is a hydrocarbon gas that is a key raw material in the chemical industry, primarily used in the production of polyethylene, the world’s most common plastic. It is also used to make other chemicals like ethylene oxide, ethylene glycol, and PVC. Ethylene is essential in the manufacture of films, packaging, containers, and pipes, playing a crucial role in various sectors including packaging, agriculture, and construction due to its versatility and the range of plastics and chemicals derived from it.

High density polyethylene (HDPE)

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a durable, rigid plastic widely used in the packaging industry. Known for its high strength-to-density ratio and chemical resistance, it is ideal for containers, bottles, and caps. HDPE is cost-effective and easily recyclable, aligning with sustainability objectives.

Low density polyethylene (LDPE)

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a flexible, lightweight, and moisture-resistant plastic commonly used in packaging. It’s cost-effective, easy to process, and recyclable, making it a go-to choice for both food and non-food packaging applications.

MEG (Monoethylene glycol)

MEG is primarily used as a raw material in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a type of polyester. PET is widely used in the manufacturing of plastic packaging materials, including bottles, containers, and films. MEG contributes to the PET polymer’s desirable properties such as clarity, strength, and barrier resistance. It’s crucial in the plastic packaging industry, especially in food and beverage packaging, due to its effective and safe containment properties. 

PET (polyethylene terephthalate)

A durable, lightweight, and recyclable thermoplastic widely used in packaging, especially for beverage bottles, food containers, and synthetic fibers. PET is known for its strength, thermal stability, and clarity.

PP (Polypropylene)

Polypropylene, commonly known as PP, is a versatile and cost-effective plastic material. Known for its chemical resistance, durability, and high melting point, this lightweight material is ideal for a range of packaging solutions, from food containers to industrial wrapping.

PTA (Purified Terephthalic Acid)

An organic compound primarily used as a raw material in the manufacture of PET and polyester fibers. PTA is crucial for producing plastics and fabrics with high durability and resistance to stretching.

Polystyrene (PS)

Polystyrene, a versatile plastic material, is commonly used in the packaging industry for its lightweight, insulating, and protective properties. We cover a range of products, such as expanded, general-purpose, and high-impact polystyrene. 

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a widely used plastic material in the packaging industry known for its durability, versatility, and resistance to moisture and chemicals. We cover prices for China, the USA, Germany, India, and Europe. 


A liquid hydrocarbon used as a monomer in the production of various plastics, including polystyrene, ABS, and SBR. Styrene is fundamental in creating plastics that are lightweight, strong, and easy to mold.

Paper products we cover

Product overview:


Paper in the packaging industry serves as a sustainable and versatile material, used for boxes, wrapping, and containers. We cover pricing for various types of paper, such as coated and double offset paper.


Boxboard is a lightweight yet sturdy paper material widely used in the packaging industry for consumer goods like cereals, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. Available in various grades and finishes, it offers a smooth surface ideal for high-quality printing and branding. Its versatility and recyclability make it a cost-effective and eco-friendly option for a wide range of packaging applications.

Fluting (Corrugated Medium)

Fluting is the wavy, central layer found in corrugated cardboard. Made from recycled paper or virgin fibres, it provides rigidity and cushioning, effectively contributing to the overall strength and impact resistance of the corrugated structure. Its cost-effectiveness and recyclability make it a sustainable choice for various packaging needs. We cover Fluting, Corrugated Paper and Fluting, Corrugated Paper (140 gram/m2).

Kraft Paper

A strong, durable paper known for its high tensile strength, made using the Kraft process. It’s commonly used for packaging, including bags, wrapping, and envelopes. Kraft paper is often preferred for its sturdiness and resistance to tearing, making it ideal for heavy or industrial items. We cover kraft paper and kraft paper, cardboard


A thick, sturdy paper material, heavier than standard paper. Paperboard is widely used in the packaging industry for making boxes, cartons, and other forms of packaging. It’s prized for its versatility, being easy to cut, fold, and decorate. It’s used for consumer goods packaging, including food and beverage, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.

Yarn Tube Paper

This is a type of heavy-duty paper used for making cores or tubes around which materials like yarn, thread, or tape are wound. It is designed to be strong and rigid to support the weight and tension of the wound materials. Yarn tube paper is essential in textile manufacturing, providing a stable core for efficient storage and use of thread-like materials.

Other packaging products we cover

Product overview:


A powerful solvent widely used in the production of plastics, synthetic fibers, and other chemical compounds. It’s key in manufacturing processes that require a strong, effective solvent, particularly in plastic and resin industries relevant to packaging.

Ethylene Glycol

Primarily used in the production of polyester fibers and resins, ethylene glycol is a crucial component in manufacturing PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), a common material in plastic bottles and food packaging.

Flat Glass

Flat glass refers to a type of glass that is manufactured in flat sheets. It is produced to create a uniform thickness and smooth surfaces. Flat glass is known for its clarity, durability, and versatility.

Butadiene Rubber

A type of synthetic rubber that is highly valued for its elasticity and durability. In packaging, it’s used for products that require flexible yet strong materials, such as seals and gaskets in container lids.

Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR)

A type of synthetic rubber that is highly valued for its elasticity and durability. In packaging, it’s used for products that require flexible yet strong materials, such as seals and gaskets in container lids.

Propylene Glycol

Known for its versatility as a solvent and its use in producing polymers. In packaging, it plays a role in creating certain types of plastics and coatings that are used in food and pharmaceutical packaging.

Propylene Oxide

A chemical primarily used in the production of polyether polyols, which are then used to create polyurethane foams. These foams are important in packaging for their cushioning properties, protecting goods during shipping and handling.
