InnoPlen® PP

PP, which is produced from propylene monomer, has a lower density, higher softening point and higher brittle point compared to Polyethylene. PP is resistant to acids, bases and many chemical solvents. When exposed to UV radiation, degradation in PP may take place. Besides, PP is sensitive to oxidation at higher temperatures. Three basic types of PP are currently available: Homopolymer(PPh), random copolymer, and block copolymer Homopolymers(PPh) have a high isotactic index, which indicates the greater crystallinity, higher melting point, greater stiffness, tensile strength, and hardness values. Block copolymers which contain a polymer matrix having a dispersed rubbery copolymer phase have the best impact resistance.
