Our products are supplied to the converters, who in turn manufacture packaging products and structural material for a wide range of industries such as packaging and construction, among others. PP is a lightweight, moderately high melting point plastic with high stiffness, hardness and strength. It is produced from propylene monomer as a homopolymer or as a copolymer with ethylene.
PP is used in the manufacture of injection-moulded articles, blow-moulded containers, pipe, sheet and textile fibres. It is often used for outdoor applications but is UV resistant only if appropriately stabilized. PP has a good resistance to fatigue and can, therefore, be used as a living hinge such as those found on flip-top bottles. Safripol produces a variety of PP grades as impact copolymers, random copolymers and homopolymers for injection moulding, extrusion, blow moulding, thermoforming and fibres.
