Introduction to Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene (PP) is a low-cost engineering thermoplastic with Good strength and high elasticity. However, the impact strength might be altered according to the grade of PP. However, depending on the PP grade, the impact strength may change.

It has superior chemical inertness and wears resistance, making it ideal for food packaging and many other applications.
