Polypropylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material similar to the EP, however, it is more resistant, rigid and melts at a higher temperature. It possesses high characteristics of resistance to chemical agents, is weldable and is normally used at temperatures between +5°C and +90°C.
Being nonpolar, it is very chemically resistant: up to 120°C retains its strength characteristics in the presence of aqueous solutions containing salts, acids and strong alkalis. Compared to the engineering plastics, however, poor mechanical strength: tensile, bending, compression, abrasion etc…
Compared to PE is more rigid but less resistant to shocks. The PP is widely used in the production of components for the chemical, petrochemical and electroplating.
