Which Protective Sleeve For Your Vinyl Records?
To meet our customers' requirements, we have three different types of plastic sleeves in our catalogue: polyethylene sleeves, polypropylene sleeves and PVC sleeves. In order to make your choice easier, we have created this page to explain the characteristics of these three materials:
Polyethylene (PE) sleeves are soft, flexible and anti-static with a standard transparency. Sometimes high transparency is not desired when the record is frequently exposed to daylight. This economic sleeve is ideal if protecting your record is your primary objective.
Sleeves made of polypropylene (PP) are ideal to put your records in the spotlight, thanks to their high transparency and gloss. The polypropylene sleeve is very smooth and also flexible but not as soft as the polyethylene because polypropylene is a harder material than polyethylene. Unlike polyethylene, folds and wrinkles are definitive. Polypropylene is also not anti-static. It reminds you of the cellophane film used to wrap flower bouquets, for example.
