The market

Europe is Arla Plast´s main market but we also manufacture and sell extruded plastic sheets to many countries outside Europe. In total we sell to over 45 countries. 

Extruded plastic sheets


Arla Plast currently has a strong position in the European PC plastic sheet market. PC (polycarbonate) is divided into three product categories:

• Transparent PC (TPC)
• Opaque PC (OPC)
• Multiwall PC (MWPC)

For example, PC is used to manufacture machine guards, noise protection and optical products (TPC), guards and components for industry, suitcases and packaging solutions (OPC) and swimming pool covers, greenhouses and various types of roofs for buildings such as sports arenas and railway stations.(MWPC).



Arla Plast has a strong regional position in ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic sheets in Northern Europe. 

ABS is mainly used to manufacture interior and exterior automotive parts and packaging.


Arla Plast has a strong position in PETG (polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) plastic sheets in Europe.

PETG is used to manufacture items including shop fittings, wall coverings and food‑related products.


The acquisition of Alphaplex in Germany now also provides us with a limited position in PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate).

PMMA is mainly used for outdoor applications and shop interiors.
