Why use Polypropylene (PP)?

Polypropylene is a durable, versatile material whose uses are manifold. Offering resistance to high temperatures and acids or alkalis, polypropylene tubes are useful for the transfer of liquids and gases. Polypropylene is also a good choice for fabricating cladding as it is impervious to water.

Polypropylene is highly lightweight, to the extent that a Polypropylene tube will float on water. For uses other than liquid transfer, Polypropylene tubes can be welded.

Polypropylene sheets are resistant to fatigue from flexing, ensuring that they are practically unbreakable.

Alternatively, Aquarius Plastics offer plastics with similar properties such as Polyethylene or Polycarbonate.

Applications for Polypropylene Tubes, Sheets & Rods

Industrially, polypropylene is often used for packaging and labelling, textiles, reusable containers (including for food) and car parts. Thin polypropylene sheets are even used to create polymer banknotes.

On a smaller scale, Polypropylene’s durability and resistance to water and chemicals allows it to be used for packaging or wall cladding in hygiene rooms, bathrooms, utility rooms, and workshops.

Aquarius Plastics can provide machining and cut-to-size services to prepare your Polypropylene for immediate use.
