Polypropylene

Polypropylene is produced by an extrusion or pressing process and available in two grades - Homopolymer and Copolymer. Homopolymer is the harder and more rigid grade whilst Copolymer is more flexible and has better low temperature impact performance.

Polypropylene is lightweight with a typical density of 910kg/m3 . It has low moisture absorption which can improve product and component stability whilst also helping with bacterial resistance.

The material exhibits excellent acid and chemical resistance and can be easily shaped and formed allowing the material to be used in many varied industries. Polypropylene can be welded with simple welding equipment and a welding rod.

Other benefits include:

  • Lightweight
  • Excellent impact resistance
  • Resistance to chemical or acid attack
  • Good electrical insulation
  • Machinable
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Easily formed, welded & machined
  • Excellent tensile and compressive strength
