Manufacturer of polypropylene products

Plastics are very useful materials in various sectors thanks to their qualities, their resistance and their practicality. Plastic Express is your manufacturer of polypropylene products, the thermoplastic polymer that is used in a wide variety of applications and that we can also provide you with cut-to-size sheets.

The uses of polypropylene

This type of plastic is really versatile and resistant, therefore, the uses of polypropylene are very varied. Here are some of the most common ones:


  • Plastic cups
  • Building materials
  • Clothing and household appliances
  • Corkscrews
  • Bags
  • Hospital supplies
  • Vehicle parts and components
  • Children’s toys
  • Film
  • Electrical and electronic components
  • Containers and packaging for foodstuffs, cosmetics and medicines
  • Industrial materials
  • Textiles and ropes


It has so many applications because it offers a wide ability to adapt to additives during its manufacture. This allows additives to be added to help, for example, to prevent the build-up of dirt, or to help printing ink adhere better.


Polypropylene is a thermoplastic and this type of material can be moulded very easily by applying heat to the material to obtain the desired shape, so a multitude of different items can be manufactured with little effort. It can be used as a plastic or as a fibre. This factor is very important, as it allows a wide variety of different products to be made from it.


The properties that make polypropylene a versatile material


Each plastic has its own molecular structure, which gives it its own defining characteristics. Polypropylene has a number of properties similar to those of polyethylene (PE), except that it has a higher softening point. Some of the characteristics that make it so versatile are as follows:


  • It has a high chemical resistance to solvents.
  • Very easy to mould, especially by heat.
  • It is a low cost polymer in relation to its benefits.
  • Thermally stable.
  • Easy to colour.
  • Water resistant material, so it avoids moisture and water transfer.
  • High resistance to bending or fatigue, does not fracture easily.
  • Good resistance to temperatures above 15ºC.


The advantages of using polypropylene

Opting for this material for the manufacture of various products has certain advantages that make it a favourite in many fields. Firstly, its high mechanical strength, both impact and fatigue resistance, stands out. It also has a high melting point (around 160ºC), which makes it suitable for working with it at high temperatures without taking so many risks.


It has a high chemical resistance to both acidic and alkaline substances, so it can be used in hostile environments that are in contact with these types of materials.


It is compatible with most processing techniques and this gives it a wide range of uses, so many people choose polypropylene for large orders and for use in a variety of items. As one of the lowest density plastics, it is lightweight, making it suitable for household products or products that can be moved easily.
