Polypropylene (PP)

We provide clients from around the world with high purity and quality polypropylene polymer, selectively sourced from the best manufacturers in the world and priced most competitively. Berium supplies stabilized polypropylene, colored or uncolored, in the form of white powder or pellets

Polypropylene is second most popular thermoplastic polymer resin after PE making up 25% of global polymer demand. Polypropylene is synthesized by polymerizing propylene, in the presence of metal-complex catalysts. PP has resistance to heat, corrosion and chemical leaching making it suitable for use in wide range of industrial applications.

Remarkable properties of polypropylene make it suitable to substitute cartons, metals, glass and other polymers, including the following:

  • Chemical inertness
  • Low density
  • Heat resistance
  • High stiffness
  • Good impact/rigidity balance
  • Good hinge property
  • Good transparency
  • Stretching ability
  • High gloss
  • Recyclability
  • Easy to weld
  • Steam barrier

PP is normally tough and flexible especially when copolymerized with ethylene; this makes polypropylene ideal for use as an engineering plastic. Plastic items for medical or laboratory use are usually made from polypropylene because it can withstand heat in the chamber used to sterilize equipments where they are subjected to high pressure saturated steam at elevated temperatures.

Polypropylene is commonly for plastic moldings, wherein it is injected into a mold while molten, forming complex shapes at relatively low cost and high volume; for instance, bottles, bottle tops, fittings.
Polypropylene is also used for manufacturing various products including: packaging, reusable containers carpets, textile fibers, ropes, thermal clothing and automotive components among others.

About 28% of polypropylene is used for rigid packaging (reusable and stackable crates, pails, corrugated boards, CD and DVD boxes); 21% is used for textiles (carpets, carpet backing); 20% is applied in technical parts including electric cables, dashboards, car bumpers and sewage pipes among others; 16% is used to produce films used for food packaging and about 15% is used for other consumer products including furniture, housewares, appliances, battery cases, toys among others. Injection molding dominates the conversion of process for these products.
