Polypropylene (PP) Materials

Polypropylene, or PP is a commonly used plastic known for its good mechanical properties and resistance to heat and chemicals. Due to its wide range of properties and ability to act as a plastic and fiber material, polypropylene is a versatile material that is seen in a wide range of applications, including household and industrial products. This nonhygroscopic, opaque, semicrystalline material is easy to process and can be used in injection molding, blow molding, extrusion and thermoforming.

Classifications
