polypropylene packaging solutions in a wide variety of sizes, models, and configurations. As our organization continues to grow, we are providing customers with more options – creating a single source for their end-to-end packaging needs.”

Free of dust and fiber, MDI polypropylene plastic can help manufacturers looking to meet FDA regulations in medical and disaster-relief applications. Polypropylene tolerates extreme temperatures, beneficial for a variety of storage and transport applications. In display and presentation, polypropylene’s clean edges help keep the focus on the product instead of the packaging. Manufacturers can take advantage of the plastic’s rigid nature and impact resistance by using it for dividers, partitions or sleeves in transport containers. Also, polypropylene is easy to clean, and resists mold, mildew, and insects – delivering specific benefits for the harvest, storage, and transportation of agricultural products.

Combining twin-wall, polypropylene packaging with protective foam provides a best-fit protection for electronics, medical devices and high-value, fragile products. The package design incorporates protection against shock, vibration, and chemical and water damage.

The new polypropylene offerings complement MDI’s existing polyethylene plastic and protective foam packaging and expand on the organization’s vertically integrated manufacturing, product assembly and kitting services.
