PP (Polypropylene) is a semycrystalline thermoplastic, known for its resistance to chemical agents.
It is completely inert and does not easily interact with any substance, for this reason it is commonly used for the packaging of food and chemicals.
It is a flexible and durable material, with a high resistance to impacts and wear.
High-performance material with flexible applications
Lightweight material with excellent chemical resistance and fatigue life suitable for wet environments. It has an elongation at break and a stiffness superior to PA that allows it to be used for flexible applications in aggressive environments.
Due to its chemical composition, each thermoplastic polymer is characterised by a different resistance to the different classes of chemicals, including apparently harmless substances such as food and cleaning products.
