Polypropylene

A high-purity, easily fabricated material that resists chemicals and corrosion.

For parts that come in regular contact with corrosive environments, polypropylene creates a pure, strong barrier of protection. The material is ideal for both wet and dry process applications, offering a solid combination of mechanical strength, rigidity and dimensional stability. Easily fabricated, polypropylene can be thermoformed, vacuum formed, and welded.
