    Polypropylene brief introduction

    Polypropylene (PP) is a linear hydrocarbon polymer, expressed as CnH2n. PP, like polyethylene (see HDPE, L/LLDPE) and polybutene (PB), is a polyolefin or saturated polymer. Polypropylene is one of those most versatile polymers available with applications, both as a plastic and as a fibre, in virtually all of the plastics end-use markets.


    Following the work by Ziegler in Germany, the process for producing "stereoregular" polymers was perfected by Professor Giulio Nattain in Italy.  Natta produced the first polypropylene resin in Spain in 1954. Natta utilised catalysts developed for the polyethylene industry and applied the technology to propylene gas.

    These new polymers with their ability to crystallise soon became popular and polypropylene is now a very successful product in many areas.  Commercial production began in 1957 and polypropylene usage has displayed strong growth from this date. The versatility of the polymer (the ability to adapt to a wide range of fabrication methods and applications) has sustained growth rates enabling PP to challenge the market share of a host of alternative materials in plethora of applications including...

    Oriented polypropylene (OPP) has seen considerable growth, having replaced cellophane in virtually all applications.

    The properties of Polypropylene include...



    Good chemical resistance


    Good fatigue resistance

    Integral hinge property

    Good heat resistance

    PP does not present stress-cracking problems and offers excellent electrical and chemical resistance at higher temperatures. While the properties of PP are similar to those of Polyethylene, there are specific differences. These include a lower density, higher softening point (PP doesn't melt below 160oC, Polyethylene, a more common plastic, will anneal at around 100oC) and higher rigidity and hardness. Additives are applied to all commercially produced polypropylene resins to protect the polymer during processing and to enhance end-use performance.

    3 Chemical Structure 

    Linear hydrocarbon polymer, little or no unsaturation. Similar to polyethylene in many properties, especially solution and electrical. However, the presence of the methyl group attached to every alternate backbone chain carbon atom can alter the properties in a number of ways:  

    (1)    it can cause a slight stiffening of the chain - increasing the crystalline melting point (Tm);  

    (2)    it can interfere with the molecular symmetry - depressing crystallinity and hence Tm.

    In the case of very regular polymers, ISOTACTIC form, the net result is a melting point some 30oC higher than that for HDPE.

    The methyl group also has a chemical effect, i.e. tertiary carbon atom provides a site for oxidation - PP less stable than PE, also peroxides and radiation lead to chain scission rather than cross-linking.

    Manufacturers quote "isotactic index" - amount insoluble in hot solvent - which indicates (?) the percentage isotactic polymer in the grade. N.B. usually 90-95% isotactic. Glass transition around 0oC presents problem of embrittlement and this can be altered by copolymerisation (with ethylene  block copolymers) and/or blending with rubber, e.g EPM. Polypropylene does not crystallise so readily as polyethylene, it tends to supercool, and this becomes worse at higher molecular weights.
