Polypropylene (PP) Bio

  • A bio-based polymer derived from plants to combines the best environmental credentials with outstanding performance
  • Can help deliver a CO2 reduction of 62 % and reduce fossil energy demand by 23 % in the production process, helping to achieve environmental certification, e.g. LEED or BREEAM, for construction projects
  • Low lambda-value for excellent insulating properties
  • Flexible and bendable to suit custom spacer requirements

Environmentally friendly

Derived from plants, this bio-based polymer offers the same balanced properties as the universal standard plastic polypropylene, for an environmentally-friendly and sustainable alternative. Can be filled with mineral filling materials such as glass fibers, significantly expanding the potential spectrum of its mechanical properties such as stiffness and application temperature.

Flexibility, stability and resistance

Polypropylene offers great resistance, including exposure to UV light. The highest application temperature of polypropylene is 100 to 110 °C, and the crystallite melting range is between 160 to 165 °C. These temperatures can be influenced by specifically selecting polypropylene types. PP can therefore withstand higher temperatures than polyethylene (PE), as well as being harder and more solid.

Almost limitless applications

With its flexible and bendable properties, Bio PP is suited to a range of applications, including custom spacer requirements. If your project could benefit from polypropylene, we will work with you to realize it—we can produce just about any kind of plastic profile to fit your needs.
