Using Durable Polypropylene in Repackaging Home CD and DVD Collections

Posted in Media Packaging Solutions with tags , , on July 28, 2010 by retailsecurityproducts

CDs and DVDs are more fragile than they look and while great care is taken to ensure that they are preserved well, sometimes it all comes down to packaging. Packaging, after all, works not just to display graphics and images on covers and on the discs but also to provide protection. But many discs sold in the market come with packaging that isn’t meant to last as long as the discs themselves. If you’re thinking of repackaging your home CDs and DVDs, you’re better off using polypropylene, a material known for its reliability and durability.

Polypropylene, also known as PP, is an excellent alternative for people looking for environmentally friendly repackaging materials. It’s one of the top choices to replace plastic packaging, which, while still popular, is being frowned upon because of the long-term damage it poses for the environment. Here are just a few of its advantages for use in home CD and DVD repackaging:

Strength and durability
Polypropylene is a strong material and its durability makes it ideal for repackaging and storing CDs and DVDs. Polypropylene is stronger than plastic, even at the same thickness. It is also more flexible, which significantly reduces the possibility of breaking during use. This makes it more efficient as packaging material, minimizing waste, inconvenient store returns and complaints.

Resistant to grease and moisture
Polypropylene offers reliable protection from moisture, grime, oil and dirt for home CDs and DVDs. Unlike paper or fiberboard, it isn’t permeable, so damage to discs can be prevented. Polypropylene is also resistant to high heat. It’s long-lasting, which assures you that discs will be protected for many years to come.

Transparent packaging
Polypropylene offers excellent clarity as a repackaging material for home CDs and DVDs. If you want ultra-transparent material to allow you to view text, graphics and images on discs or sleeves, this is an excellent choice.

Polypropylene costs less than other types of plastics that are still in use as packaging or repackaging material for CDs and DVDs.

One of the best reasons for using polypropylene as repackaging material for CDs and DVDs is its 100% recyclability. At the end of the life of a product, the plastic packaging used to encase it is either buried in landfills or burned. With polypropylene, recycling is not an issue. The material can be extracted, recycled and manufactured into a similar product or an entirely different one, which extends its life and usefulness.


Avatar’s DVD Case is from Brackley Industries

Although it’s too late to announce it, we’re here to let you know that Brackley Industries won the DVD case contract for Avatar!

Avatar’s DVD version was released worldwide last April 29.  And we’re proud to reiterate that the DVD case that the movie Avatar comes in is from us – the ONE-Time cases.

Here are some more information about our ONE-Time cases.
ONE-Time cases are very strong, high quality cases. They include a lock that can also be removed for those who are not into these locks. These cases are significantly weighing more at 81 grams, while the common ones in the market are more lightweight approx. 55 grams so they’re less durable.

ONE-Time cases are “designer” cases, that’s why the media company behind Avatar chose us. They are not your usual cases. The lock inside is apparently for security which also means that the disc and contents have not been tampered with. For DVD collectors, this means you are the first person to touch the inner case and contents. Fantastic, isn’t it?
Oh, and these cases are also 100% recyclable and made from safe virgin material.
