Why Zerust (VCI)?


Polyethylene vs Polypropylene

  • Polyethylene is translucent and prohibits a greater amount of light while polypropylene is transparent.
  • The lower static charge produced by polyethylene as opposed to the higher charge emitted by polypropylene means that polyethylene will attract much less dirt, dust and other foreign, organic elements.
  • Polyethylene is more flexible than polypropylene.
  • Polyethylene is soft and pliable and polypropylene is stiff and hard.
  • Due to its rigidity, polypropylene is more prone to tear, especially at the seams.
  • Polyethylene is porous and polypropylene is non-porous.
  • Polyethylene is stretchable and polypropylene is non-stretchable.
  • Polyethylene is ideal for every day types of packaging for industrial and commercial uses.
  • Polypropylene, particularly due to its high clarity is more suitable to retail applications
