PP Material Summary

Polypropylene (PP) is a clear, strong, flexible material that is chemically inert and has low moisture absorption. Many grades of PP are available to suit part life and strength needs. It is ideal for living hinges as it can be repeatedly bent without failure and in packaging due to its toughness and resistance to chemicals. Bottle caps, plastic chairs and plastic tubs can be made out of PP.
