Description

Polypropylene Homopolymer

  • PPH is light weight (SG 0.91) has improved chemical resistance, stiffness, improved higher working temperature compared to PPC (0°C to +100°C). PPH retains its low water absorption, is easily weldable and food compliant.

Properties:

  • High rigidity in upper temperature range
  • Higher working temperature than PPC
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Excellent weldability
  • Food compliant

Applications

  • Equipment construction
  • Water applications
  • Chemical tanks
  • Medical

IS POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD ECONOMICAL?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod is one of our most economical plastics and as such is ideal for minimal cost or sacrificial components.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD?

  • Good Acid Resistance
  • Good Chemical Resistance
  • Impact Resistance
  • Light Weight
  • Economical
  • Non Stick

WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD?

  • Machine ability
  • Working Temperature
  • Bonding
  • Fire Resistance

IS POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD LIGHTWEIGHT?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod is incredibly light weight, it is so light, it even floats

IS POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD CHEMICAL RESISTANT?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod has also got very good chemical resistance, again, a lot of chemical tanks and fittings are manufactured from Polypropylene.

IS POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD ACID RESISTANT?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod is very acid resistant and as such a lot of acid tanks including sulphuric are manufactured from Polypropylene.

DOES POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD HAVE LOW ADHESION?

  • This is the characteristic of most things not sticking to Polypropylene, this can be an advantage in say a cement or concrete application where not having the product sticking to a component would be better

IS POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD IMAPACT RESISTANT?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod is pretty good for components where impact is going to be a factor. The faces of soft face hammers are sometimes made from Polypropylene

IS POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD FIRE RESISTANT?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod has a fire rating of HB which means that not only will it burn, it will continue to burn when the flame is taken away and it will drip molten

CAN I MACHINE POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD?

  • Due to Polypropylene Plastic Rod's fairly low melting point, more care is needed to prevent heat build up during machining or a poor finish could result.

WHAT ARE THE WORKING TEMPERATURES OF POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD?

  • The maximum long term working temperature for Polypropylene Plastic Rod is 80°C which is some 20% less than Nylon or Acetal

WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS OF POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD?

  • The most obvious one would be acid or chemical components or bungs or thread protectors or perhaps bundles of items that will be expected to withstand repeated impact.

CAN POLYPROPYLENE PLASTIC ROD BE BONDED?

  • Polypropylene Plastic Rod is very difficult to have any great success gluing or bonding, although not impossible with specialist adhesives, we would probably recommend welding if it was feasible.
