Polypropylene Carbonate Production Cost Analysis 2021
Polypropylene carbonate or PPC is an example of a copolymer of carbon dioxide and propylene oxide. It is known as a thermoplastic material. PPC is soluble in polar solvents like lower ketones, ethyl acetate, dichloromethane, and chlorinated hydrocarbons and is insoluble in solvents like alcohol, water, and aliphatic hydrocarbons. It also forms stable emulsions in water. PPC permits the diffusion of gases like oxygen through it. It has a glass temperature (Tg) between 25 and 45 °C. polypropylene carbonate binders are amorphous. The glass temperature of polypropylene carbonate is slightly higher than polyethylene carbonate or PEC. Its refractive index is known to be 1.46 whereas, its dielectric constant is 3.
Polypropylene carbonate is used to boost the toughness of some epoxy resins. It is also used as a sacrificial binder for the ceramic industry that decomposes and evaporates while sintering. It has a low sodium content that makes it suitable for the preparation of electroceramics like that of dielectric materials and piezoelectric ceramics. Moreover, the composites of polypropylene carbonate with starch (PPC/starch) are used as biodegradable plastics.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Polypropylene Carbonate production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
