Polypropylene is a white polymer capable of undergoing transition to an elastic and fluid state upon heating. Propylene gas (propene) is used for its production. Subsequently, various raw materials are produced from propylene in the form of granules or white powder.
Polypropylene is recyclable, impact resistant and does not change its characteristics even when exposed to chemicals. It is also distinguished by immunity to gases and vapors, has low electrical conductivity. Polypropylene is actively used in various industries due to maintenance of its original characteristics at high temperatures up to 120-140 degrees. The polypropylene disadvantage is its high sensitivity to oxygen, light and weather, but it can be reduced using special components. This material is the most popular modern plastic. Polypropylene products include packaging, disposable tableware, medical inhalers and syringes, baby products, as well as parts of automobile and other equipment.
