Polypropylene is the most important derivative of propylene, making up around 70% of propylene demand today. There are three different types; Homopolymer (HPP), Random Copolymers (RCPP) and Impact Copolymers (ICPP), each with different production processes and chemical and physical properties. Polypropylene’s physical properties make it a versatile material used for the production of durable and non-durable goods and has many far reaching applications and demand sectors such as packaging, textiles (fibres) and the automotive industry. Polypropylene can also be compounded and oriented to further improve its properties to meet end-use requirements and specifications.
