Polypropylene (PP) is light, strong, having resistance to chemicals and with a low friction surface, all of which make it ideal as a replacement for wood or metal which are the materials traditionally used. PP is a high corrosion resistant material, which exhibits excellent tensile strength and stiffness at elevated temperatures.
