Product Summary of Polypropylene (PP)

A relatively tough semi-crystalline polyolefin with similar properties to those of high density polyethylene. However, Polypropylene (PP) is available as either a fairly rigid and marginally more brittle homopolymer or as the more flexible and impact resistant copolymer. It is used in a variety of packaging applications as well as household containers and in many automotive applications. It is also widely used as a fiber material, being utilized in carpets for hard wearing areas, such as those found around swimming pools and miniature golf courses. More recent developments have seen it used in honeycomb panels and as both matrix and fibers in composites.

Characteristics of Polypropylene (PP) include:

  • Low density
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Tough
  • Suitable for contact with food
  • Better thermal properties compared to polyethylenes
