Polypropylene

 

Polypropylene combines high corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, and great tensile strength. It maintains its stiffness at elevated temperatures and displays incredible resistance to organic solvents, de-greasing agents, and electrolytic attack. In addition, the material is lightweight, and stain and moisture resistant.

Why you should use Polypropylene:

  • Self Lubricating and Low Co-Efficient of Friction
  • High Chemical Resistance
  • Abrasion, Moisture and Electrical Resistance
  • Stiffness, Rigidity, or Cut Resistance
  • Low Specific Gravity (Floats in Water)

This materials is…in many applications where chemical resistance and stiffness are a must.

  • Resistant to 180 degrees F and handles acids, alkalies and solvents extremely well.
  • USDA and FDA approved for use in food processing applications.
  • Excellent stiffness and rigidity
  • Very good Dielectric Properties
  • Impact and Stress Crack Resistant
  • FDA and NSF Compliant

Material is frequently used in:

Polypropylene sheet is used in a broad variety of applications, but is particularly suited to the manufacture of chemical tanks for the following reasons:

  • Can be formed into almost any shapeWhite Polypropylene Welded Tank
  • Unsurpassed chemical resistance
  • Reliably handles all acids, alkalis and solvents up to 180 degrees F
  • Resistant to abrasion, cuts and moisture
  • High tensile and compressive strength
  • Dependably maintains rigidity in all weather conditions
  • Superb dielectric properties
  • Wide variety of formulations including conductive, glass filled and static dissipative
  • Approved by the USDA and FDA for use in food processing applications
