Polypropylene (PP)

Mechanically superior to HDPE, OMEGA-PRO ® Polypropylene is commonly used for components in the chemical industry where overall strength coupled with a good resistance to alkalis and acids is necessary.

OMEGA-PRO ® Polypropylene offers a good balance of thermal, chemical and electrical properties with moderate strength.  Because it has such a hard, high gloss surface, polypropylene is ideally suited to environments where there is a concern for bacteria build up that can interfere with flow. Like most polyolefins, OMEGA-PRO ® is approved for direct food contact. It has good insulating properties. Its excellent arc resistance and dielectric strength allows OMEGA-PRO ® to be used extensively in electrical applications. It comes in 2 forms- OMEGAPRO ® Polypropylene Homo polymer PP (H) and OMEGAPRO ® Polypropylene copolymer PP (C).
