POLYPROPYLENE Offers a good balance of thermal, chemical and electrical properties with moderate strength.  It possesses a good strength to weight ratio.  Due to its hard, high gloss surface, PP is ideally suited to environments where there is concern for bacteria build up that can interferewith flow. These sheets can be heat formed, shaped and welded to fabricate ducts, hoods, and much more. They have excellent corrosion resistance to a wide range of items. Cannot be cemented but are easily welded with a plastic welder. PP can be cut with a wood saw and drilled with regular metal bits. Not UV stabilized but is USDA approved and meets FDA standards. Polypropylene has a .90 density, rigid with fair impact resistance and very good abrasion resistance. It is white-tan, translucent with working temperatures of 32 deg F to 210 deg F and a forming temp of 310-325 deg F.
