About Polypropylene:

It is a linear structure based on the monomer CnH2n. It is manufactured from propylene gas in presence of a catalyst such as titanium chloride. Beside PP is a by-product of oil refining processes.

Properties of polypropylene

Listed below are the reasons why polypropylene is commonly used in our daily life:

  • Light in weight
    For example, PP has the lowest density (i.e 0.90-0.92 g/cm3) of the resins.
  • Excellent resistance to stress and high resistant to cracking (i.e. it has high tensile and compressive strength)
  • High operational temperatures with a melting point of 160°C
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • It is highly resistant to most alkalis and acid, organic solvents, degreasing agents and electrolytic attack. On the contrary is less resistance to aromatic, aliphatic and chlorinated solvents and UV.
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-staining
  • Easy to produce, assembly and an economic material


Application of Polypropylene:

In general Polypropylene  can be used for manufacturing housewares, packaging,  monofilaments and film tapes, pipes, containers, boat hulls, seat shells and automotive parts e.g. battery cases and bumpers, semiconductors etc. Its resistance to bacterial growth makes it suitable to be used in medical equipment.
