TECAFINE ® PP

Polypropylene

TECAFINE™PP (polypropylene) is an anti-stated, poly-propylene, random copolymer polyolefin engineering plastic providing excellent chemical resistance and high purity.  The material exhibits better mechanical properties than other typical polyolefin materials, is light weight, weldable, and unaffected by moisture. Its characteristic profile includes good corrosion resistance, high rigidity and permanent heat stability. PPH material is easily fabricated and machined and is suitable for contact with food. Ensinger's unique processing technology provides unsurpassed quality in TECAFINE™PP stock shapes.  Ensinger also offers PPH in beige/grey.
