PP (Polypropylene): Polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling, textiles, plastic parts, reusable containers, and automotive components among many others.

Polypropylene is normally tough and flexible, especially when copolymerized with polyethylene. This allows polypropylene to be used as an engineering plastic, comparable with materials such as ABS.

The melt flow rate (MFR) or melt flow index (MFI) is a measure of molecular weight of polypropylene. The measure helps to determine how easily the molten raw material will flow during processing. Polypropylene with higher MFR will fill the plastic mold more easily during the injection or blow-molding production process. As the melt flow increases, however, some physical properties, like impact strength, will decrease.
