Emco Industrial Plastics is a leading plastic distributor, fabricator, and provider of welding services for customers throughout North America. We maintain extensive inventories of engineering, high-performance, and commodity plastics—including polypropylene—in a variety of forms and sizes to suit different plastic needs, including:
Polypropylene (PP) is available in two basic types: homopolymer (PPH) or copolymer (PPC). Although similar in many respects, each type exhibits distinct differences in both appearance and performance.
At Emco, we offer PPH suitable for use in a wide range of industrial applications, such as:
Polypropylene is characterized by the following key attributes:
These qualities, along with a few others, are what make polypropylene suitable for a wide range of industrial and consumer applications, such as the manufacture of point-of-purchase (POP) displays, battery covers, chemical tanks, and complex pump components. Another advantageous properties of PP is its production versatility. The material can easily be machined and fabricated through several different fabrication techniques.
In addition to exhibiting the above characteristics, polypropylene homopolymer also brings its own unique set of qualities to the table. For example, compared to polypropylene copolymer, it demonstrates:
PPH is suitable for applications that require good resistance to impact, corrosion and chemicals, good weldability and processability, and/or food-safe standard compliance.
At Emco Industrial Plastics, we distribute polypropylene homopolymer sourced from industry-leading manufacturers. Our PPH product offerings include:
