Polypropylene is, as well, one of the most widely used thermoplastic in the world. It is a is a rigid, semi-crystalline thermoplastic manufactured by polymerization of propylene. Polypropylene is used mainly for molding, filaments, fibers and films and is widely used to make molded containers and cars.
There are three main grades of polypropylene resin allowing for changes in specific properties as determined by the composition of the polymer chain:
Polypropylene homopolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene with Ziegler-Natta catalysts.
As well, Homopolymers are extremely well known and used in several markets including, but not limited to: Film, Packaging, Household Goods, Textiles, Heathcare, Pipes, Automotive Applications, Electrical industries.
Polypropylene Random Copolymers
Polypropylene Random Copolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene with Butene or ethylene bond introduce in the polymer chain. These resins are used in a wide range of different applications and end usage such as, but not limited to
Polypropylene Random Copolymers have numerous advantages to their specifications by being very transparent and glossy, extremely good at aesthetic characteristics and has the best radiation resistance among other polypropene resins types.
Polypropylene Impact Copolymers
The polypropylene Impact Copolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene and ethylene by using Ziegler Natta catalysts. This resins is created as a much rigid material with excellent impact strength, even at low temperatures.
Again, due to the wide properties and range and grades of Polypropylene impact copolymers, these resins serve in a wide range of industries such as: Packaging, housewares, pipe applications, film, automotive and electrical segments.
