Product Overview

Polypropylene - Commercial Grade Thermoplastic

Polypropylene sheets and rods are versatile and lightweight materials known for their machinability and durability. They offer excellent resistance to impact, moisture, and many chemicals, making them suitable for use in demanding environments. 

Features and Benefits:

  • Food safe: NSF 51 certified, polypropylene is perfect for food handling surfaces.
  • Insulative: Excellent insulating and dielectric properties.
  • Chemical Resistance: Resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids and solvents, ensuring longevity and reliability.
  • Low Moisture Absorption: Performs consistently even in humid conditions, keeping its integrity intact.
  • Machinable: Polypropylene is perfect for machining and heat bending.

Applications:

  • Food & Beverage: NSF 51 and FDA certified, polypropylene is perfect for food handling surfaces.
  • Chemical processing: Used in resevoir lining and piping due to its excellent chemical resistance.
  • Automotive: Durable and heat-resistant, perfect for various automotive parts.
  • Electronics: Great for insulative and heat-resistant components.
  • Industrial Machinery: Wear resistant and machinable, suitable customizable parts that need to withstand high wear.

 

Polypropylene copolymer and homopolymer have slightly different chemical makeup which creates slightly different physical properties. Homopolymer polypropylene consists of a single type of monomer, resulting in a highly crystalline and rigid material that offers excellent strength and stiffness. It's ideal for applications requiring durability and resistance to chemical stress. In contrast, polypropylene copolymer incorporates two different monomers, which enhances its flexibility and impact resistance, especially at lower temperatures. This makes copolymer polypropylene more suitable for applications where toughness and resilience are needed, even though it might have slightly lower mechanical strength compared to homopolymer polypropylene.

 

At Northeast Plastics, we offer a wide range of polypropylene grades, including both homopolymer and copolymer variants, each designed to meet specific industrial needs. Whether you need mechanical strength, thermal resistance, or chemical stability, we have the perfect polypropylene grade for your application.
