Polypropylene (PP) is one of the most economical high purity olefin materials with a combination of outstanding physical, chemical, mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. Polypropylene provides excellent resistance to organic solvents, degreasing agents and electrolytic attack. It is light in weight, resistant to staining, and has a low moisture absorption rate. Compared to polyethylene, it has a lower impact strength, but superior working temperature and tensile strength.

It is easily fabricated, can be thermoformed, vacuum formed, and welded.

Key Features;

  • Lightweight
  • Mechanically tough and rigid
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High purity
  • No moisture absorption
  • Good resistance to stress cracking
  • Abrasion resistant
