Polystyrene trays

This fountain is made of polystyrene... do you know what this means? We'll tell you in a moment! Polystyrene is a thermoplastic polymer with many properties that is used to create, among other things, a wide variety of consumer products.

Thus, plastic trays are characterised by the fact that they are light, resistant, hygienic and easy to stack. And you don't have to worry about them falling on the floor, because they won't break into small pieces that could cause harm to the bearer.

And what are these trays used for? To transport food of all kinds in a safe, fast, convenient and hygienic way. Not only that, as there are different models and sizes, they can be used to present foodstuffs at a catering or event such as birthdays, parties or anniversaries. From a gathering with friends or family to a distinguished event, these platters can be adapted to your needs.

Oriented polystyrene trays

Now that you know about polystyrene, let's move on to OPS or oriented polystyrene. You may ask yourself: "but isn't it the same thing? OPS is a derivative of polystyrene, however, it is more transparent.

Among other qualities, it is able to resist food oils and fats, it is disposable and easily recyclable. At the same time, these rectangular, square or round plastic trays can transport hot and cold food (between -10 ºC - 70 ºC).

As for the uses given to them, the food service in take away businesses, canteens, catering or hospitals stands out due to their practicality and hygiene.

Expanded polystyrene trays

And we continue with polystyrene! We promise that this is the last one we have. In this case we are talking about EPS (expanded polystyrene) or FOAM, a foamed plastic component derived from polystyrene.

These dishes have isothermal properties, so they will maintain the temperature of the food. They are also hygienic and safe (even more so if a lid is placed on top). The only thing to remember is that they cannot withstand the high temperatures of microwaves.

Plastic trays made of this material offer many advantages, which are of particular benefit to catering businesses. With them, salads, starters and all kinds of food to share among your guests will retain their flavour and properties.

Polypropylene trays

Polypropylene (another of our thermoplastic polymer friends) is also well known in the food sector for its numerous properties.

Polyethylene trays

This material, better known as PET, is a plastic polymer used for beverage containers among many other applications. One of them, plastic trays, whose rigidity and resistance to breakage is ideal for transporting groceries safely.

With an elegant design, they are capable of carrying foods of different weights and temperatures, making them the perfect choice for distinguished events. You can also add an elegant touch to your table by leaving the platters as a food presentation so that your guests can serve themselves what they want.
