    Characteristics of cellular polypropylene or plastic cardboard

    Cellular polypropylene (PP), also known as plastic cardboard,  is a material that is very resistant to knocks or accidents that may occur mechanically. In addition, it has very little reaction to acids or solvents, keeping its characteristics intact for much longer.


    It is a plastic that can be moulded using heat, so it is a thermoplastic. Its main difference with polyethylene (PE) is that it has a higher softening point.
