Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene is a rugged material that is highly resistant to many chemical solvents, bases, and acids. It remains strong and durable up to 141°F, which makes it a popular material for heat-sterilization containers.

It is used in both the food (PP is FDA compliant) and medical industries, as well as in automotive steering wheels, textile machinery parts, and even components of prosthetic limbs.

PP has a very low specific gravity and is one of the lightest plastics available, making it highly attractive for use in industries where weight is an important factor.
