Polypropylene, a synthetic resin built up by the polymerization of propylene. One of the important family of polyolefin resins, polypropylene is molded or extruded into many plastic products in which toughness, flexibility, light weight, and heat resistance are required. It is also spun into fibres for employment in industrial and household textiles. Propylene can also be polymerized with ethylene to produce an elastic ethylene-propylene copolymer.
PP belongs to polyolefin family of polymers and is one of the top 3 most used polymers today. Polypropylene has applications, both as a plastic and as a fiber, in:
- Automotive Industry
- Industrial Applications
- Consumer Goods, and
