The Structure and Properties of Polypropylene

About this event

Polypropylene is a versatile thermoplastic that can be processed through a variety of processing techniques. It is utilized in a wide range of applications, including packaging, automotive, infrastructure, appliances, healthcare, and electrical. Its wide use is based upon several key strengths, including:

  • Good chemical resistance
  • Good electrical insulation properties
  • Flexural strength and modulus
  • Relatively low coefficient of friction
  • Readily available and relatively inexpensive

The properties of polypropylene are highly dependent on molecular weight and molecular weight distribution, crystallinity, type and proportion of comonomer and the tacticity.

At the conclusion of the webinar, attendees will

  • Gain an understanding of the general properties of polypropylene.
  • Have more insight into how the molecular structure of polypropylene determines its performance properties.
  • Appreciate the diversity of polypropylene.
