What is Polypropylene Plastic?

Polypropylene plastic (PP) is a polyolefin with similar properties to polyethylene and HDPE but is slightly harder and more heat resistant. The material is usually white or grey and is mechanically rugged and has a high degree of chemical resistance.

We fabricate all sorts of tanks and liners for customers in a diverse range of industries using polypropylene. Here are just a couple of examples of the many uses of this robust material.
