About Polypropylene (PP):

Polypropylene or PP is basically a thermoplastic polymer that is utilised in a wide variety of applications. It is prepared via chain-growth polymerisation from the monomer propylene. Polypropylene belongs to the group of polyolefins and is partially crystalline as well as non-polar. Its characteristics are similar to that of polyethylene, but it is slightly harder and more heat resistant.

Synonyms:

  • Polypropene    
  • 9003-07-0
  • Polipropene 25 [USAN]
  • Propene polymers
  • Propylene polymers

Industrial Uses:

  • Packaging
  • Engineering plastic
  • Plastic parts

Production Processes:

  • Polypropylene Production via Gas Phase Polymerisation; via Slurry Polymerisation; and via Bulk Polymerisation.

In the gas phase polymerisation process, propene is passed over heterogeneous catalyst particles to finally produce polymer in a powdered form, which is further transformend into pellets. 

Procurement Resource also provides the production cost analysis of Polypropylene.
