Polypropylene

Polypropylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material that exhibits excellent ability to resist fatigue when flexing under load, making it a preferred material in orthotics and prosthetics.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material that exhibits excellent ability to resist fatigue when flexing under load, making it a preferred material in orthotics and prosthetics.

Polypropylene is suitable for contact with food products and exhibits very good electrical insulation properties, high surface hardness and very low water absorption. It has the ability to withstand contact with many common sterilization materials including acids, alkalis, and solvents, and its ease of processing enables it to be used in many applications requiring repeated exposure to chemicals.

Polypropylene Copolymer, known as PP-C, has a continuous use temperature range of -4° F (-20° C) to 176° F (80° C) and exhibits an increased impact strength at low temperatures. Polypropylene Homopolymer, known as PP-H, has a continuous use temperature of 32° F (0° C) to 212° F (100° C). Polypropylene Homopolymer is also available in a dimensionally stable grade.

Living Hinge

Polypropylene can be manufactured into a living hinge. A living hinge is a thin piece of plastic that bend without breaking. These are useful for non-load-bearing applications.

Combines Easily

Polypropylene can be easily copolymerized with other polymers such as polyethylene, allowing for changing of the material properties for more in-depth engineering applications.

Fatigue Resistant

Through torsion, bending or flexing, polypropylene is able to retain its shape.
