Polypropylene
PP
Polypropene
Polypropylene (a.k.a. PP, Polypropene) is a thermoplastic polymer made of propylene with 10,000 to 20,000 monomer units. It is the second most produced commodity plastic behind only polyethylene. In a qualitative approach, PP is a colorless, translucent to transparent solid with a glossy surface. PP is versatile, durable and extremely rugged material. Its properties and texture vary depending on the process used to create it. It is known to have good tensile strength despite its lightweight. PP has great elasticity, fatigue resistance, water resistance, has a higher melting point than most other plastics in the market, good resistance to chemicals, greater scratch resistance than other polyolefins, good environmental stress cracking resistance, good processability via injection molding and extrusion, and a low moisture absorption rate.
