Polypropylene (PP) is a homopolymer polyolefin thermoplastic. Polyolefin’s are partially crystalline thermoplastics which exhibit very high chemical resistance.
Polypropylene has a very low specific density of .91g/cm and is one of the lighter plastics. Its rigidity, hardness and strength plus the ability to be easily welded makes it ideal for use in corrosion resistant applications.
Polypropylene is non-toxic and authorised for use in the food sector; it is also resistant to diluted acids, alkali and salt solutions, water, alcohol and petrol.
