This is an extremely popular item.
This product is exactly the same as our standard 4 mil dual pocket sleeve, except it has two 2.25 inch flaps that are creased to easily tuck inside the pocket and isn't secured with a resealable tape.
Unlike the standard PVC sleeves that you typically find used with picture discs, the flaps for these sleeves are specially designed to avoid cracking, and since CPP is used due to it's "natural hinge" capabilities, our expectations is that these sleeves will last quite a long time under normal use.
This design is meant to protect your album cover while still giving you easy access to the vinyl record. I don't recommend storing your record in the pocket without a good inner sleeve. The pictures are just to demonstrate the two pocket design.
Our CPP sleeves have excellent properties including clear transparency, scratch resistance, heat resistance, and moisture proof. CPP (cast polypropylene) film has a clear advantage over standard BOPP, polyethylene, Mylar or PVC sleeves.
What are the advantages of cast polypropylene? CPP has higher tear and impact resistance values, better cold temperature performance and moisture transmission properties than standard sleeves. CPP won't turn cloudy over the normal life of the product, unlike other films. CPP is very hard to crease unlike BOPP and has some stretch forgiveness.
Cast Polypropylene is usually used in applications that require superior optical properties such as gloss, transparency, surface smoothness, and good tear resistance.
They are a true premium product to protect your expensive, irreplaceable record collection for years to come. No other product will give you this amazing clarity.
