ChEBI: A polymer compose of repeating propane-1,2-diyl units.
Modifier for waxes to reduce blocking, scuffing and abrasion. Improves pigment dispersion in polypropylene films and fibers.
Polypropylene reacts with chlorine, fuming nitric acid and other strong oxidizing agents.
Base polymer in hot melt adhesives and paper-laminating, extender and viscosity modifier in caulks and sealants and waterproofing agent in wire and cable applications.
Used with ram- and screw-injection machines. For automotive, housewares, general molding products and multi- and monofiliment fiber.
Tan to white odorless solid. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Hence floats on water.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
No apparent toxicity
General extrusion grade polymer.
