Plasticprop Sample Kit

The Plasticprop Sample Kit introduces samples of 20 most relevant plastic grades. Samples are designed to reveal the properties and behaviour of each plastic both in use and in process.

"I developed the sample kit for my own use because in plastic design, hands-on experience is essential when choosing and evaluating materials. Since then, I have sold the kit all over the world and to many companies, including notable mobile manufacturers, design agencies, material suppliers and design schools." Markus Paloheimo

The sample kit costs 295 € (VAT 0%). The kit includes a booklet that describes the different materials and guides to observe their properties.

Positive Plastics Sample Kit
