Polypropylene

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic resin. Different formulations designation and modification allow it widely to be used in different applications. Its well-known outstanding properties include:

  • Light weight (low specific gravity)
  • High temperature resistance
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Excellent rigidity
  • No stress cracking
  • High tensile strength
  • Excellent flexural strength
  • Low creep
  • Excellent electrical properties
  • Good barrier properties
  • Impact resistance
  • Wide range of applications
  • Ease of processing
  • Highly environmental friendly
  • Recyclable

 

Product portfolio of polypropylene is available to meet the needs of various applications such as housewares, healthcare, automotive, construction, and baby care.

The wide range of physical properties via modification, ease of processing, and cost advantage of polypropylene, make it an extremely attractive alternative to more expensive resins in a number of applications.

 

Applications

LCY offers polypropylene of various grades to meet market demands. For food containers or large storage boxes, customers can select PP with melt flow rate and physical properties suitable for individual fabrication process to produce the best products.

Globalene ST868K / ST869K / ST860K, meeting requirement of food contact, are suitable for the production of mid-size food containers and large transparent objects. They still exhibit excellent transparency under lower injection temperature when molding, attributing to energy saving and production capacity raise. For storage box requiring impact resistance, we recommend Globalene ST031 / ST751 that exhibit excellent processability and sufficient impact resistance.

LCY has been concentrating on development of polypropylene in medical application. Our processes are subject to rigorous quality requirements and validated by international certification organization. Our PP products for the manufacture of IV bottle, syringe, IV bag and contact lens box have won the reliability and recognition of our clients around the world. Along with the evolvement of sterilization methods, we continue to develop new products and provide technical support to our customers to create more business opportunities to both of our customers and ourselves.

Polypropylene has low specific gravity, good chemical resistance and is environmental friendly. As a green, light weight material, PP is used extensively in construction and automotive.

Globalene 8001 has passed ISO9080 testing and evaluation for extensive applications in hot water pipes and fittings. Globalene 7433-9 / 7433 are used extensively in motorcycle and automotive battery case. Our Globalene 7011 / 7012 are suitable for use in car window seal strip, auto parts, and impact-resistant packing material.

Complying with the environmental and food safety regulations, LCY offers non-toxic polypropylene that meets international safety standards so moms need not worry about the safety of plastic products they select for babies.

Through the adjustment of processing conditions, Globalene 8681 / 868H can be used in the production of clear baby bottle that meet the U.S. and European regulation of food contact material. Globalene 7633-3, given its processability and superior physical properties, is extensively used in international brand strollers and child safety seats. Globalene 6331 / 7533 can be used in the production of a variety of toys under simple injection conditions.
