Description

Polypropylene is a linear hydrocarbon polymer. It is semi-rigid and saturated, also known as a polyolefin. Being one of the most versatile polymeric materials, PP is available either as a fiber or a plastic.
White and translucent in appearance, polypropylene is an all-round thermoplastic with high durability and lightweight. It has a low density, a slippery surface and a low coefficient of friction. It is also an excellent resistant to heat, electricity, fatigue, chemicals and organic solvents. Stress-cracking is not an issue for PP as it also displays good levels of corrosion resistance.
