Polypropylene

 

     

Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic material and is one of the lightest thermoplastics on the market.  It is very tough and versatile for many applications and has a great chemical resistance.  Although Polypropylene can be translucent it is generally available as solid colours with or without a texture.  It can be used for fabrication, thermoforming or just as a sheet cut to size.


What are the advantages Polypropylene?

  • Simple processing.
  • Low density.
  • Excellent chemical resistance against most chemicals.
  • Excellent heat distortion temperature (above 100°C).
  • Generally suitable for food product contact.
  • The properties can be modified using different fillers, thus enhancing its characteristics, such as stiffness and rigidity, as well as heat distortion resistance.

What types of Polypropylene do we offer?

  • Homo-polymer is a multi-purpose polypropylene with an extremely wide scope of application.  Generally suitable for higher temperatures.
  • Block co-polymer is a polypropylene which contains 5-15% of ethylene. This improves impact resistance even at low temperatures.
  • Static co-polymer is a polypropylene which contains 1-7% of co-monomer ethylene and is applied when a more elastic and transparent material is required.

 

Which characteristics can be improved?

  • Visual appearance.
  • Dimensional stability.
  • Stiffness.
  • Abrasion resistance.
  • Friction (higher or lower).
  • Various weather influence resistance (UV resistance).
  • Fire retardancy. (UL94, Glow Wire Classifications).
  • Antistatic characteristics and electrical conductivity,

What applications are Polypropylene especially suitable for?

Polypropylene can be processed effectively employing various processing procedures.

It is most suitable for fabrication including hot air welding along with thermoforming.
