It is used in manufacturing everything from clothing and upholstery, electrical cable insulation and inflatable plastic products as it is fast becoming a reliable alternative to rubber.
A plastic polymer, pp is used as both a structural plastic and fiber with application in industrial materials as well as consumer goods. Polypropylene is available in a range of physical properties, has low density and is easy to process.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
A linear polymer, HDPE is somewhat harder and more opaque used the production of grocery bags and trash bags, food-grade containers, caps and closures, plastic liners for food packaging, fuel tanks, as it can withstand extreme temperatures.
Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
LDPE resins offer low production costs and are used in a wide range of products with different levels of strength, stretch, clarity and puncture resistance, including blown and cast film, Extrusion and coating
Rotational and injection molding.
Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE)
LLDPE is currently being used in almost all markets including plastic bags, wraps and stretch wraps, pouches, toys and containers. It’s other heavy duty uses include covering for cables, and as flexible tubing.
