Polypropylene (PP) also known as Polypropene, is a synthetic resin which is a polymer of propylene or in other words ,a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling, textiles, etc.
Polypropylene’s (PP) intrinsic properties of high stiffness, good strength and inertness toward acids, alkalis and solvents, plus its traditional cost advantage over other thermoplastic polymers, has secured its position in a wide range of consumer and industrial products, manufactured by several high-volume forming methods. In addition, its low density and earlier cost advantage advantage over thermoplastic polymers made it suitable for application that were weight and cost conscious.
PP and its alloys have become the plastic of choice in the automobile market where it can provide substantial weight saving. It is used in internal and external body panels and its heat resistance make it suitable for use for components in the engine compartment. PP’s low density, combined with good mechanical properties ( especially when filled or compounded) and good injection moulding characteristics, make it very suitable for the large-volume, weight-conscious automotive market. Over a third of plastic in automobiles are PP and PP alloys.
One of the advantages of polypropylene is that it is fully recyclable and that it is easier to recycle than almost any other plastics. It even flows more easily as it degrades. Nowadays most environmental friendly companies are using this product which AMAG supplies from trusted resources.
