  • It does not stand up well to abrasion and atmospheric agents.It is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material, like pe, but is more resistant and rigid and melts at a higher temperature despite having a lower density.It is a thermoplastic, semi-crystalline material like PE, but is tougher and more rigid and melts at a higher temperature although having a lower density.PP is highly resistant to chemicals: it retains its resistance to aqueous solutions containing salts, and strong acids and alkalis in temperatures up to 120ºC. Yet, at ambient temperatures it is susceptible to attack from strong oxidising agents such as nitric acid and halogens.
