We laser-cut polypropylene for various customers. One of the products we produce are semi-finished plastics that are resistant to chemical corrosion or high temperatures. Polypropylene is extremely suitable for these purposes. Because it allows burr-free laser-cutting. Particularly, foils and materials made from polypropylene allow neat laser-cutting. We laser-cut polypropylene up to 4 millimetres of thickness.
Polypropylene has some great qualities. It’s strong, hard and is resistant to bacterial growth. This makes it highly suitable for industries where hygiene is important, for example, the healthcare industry. Furthermore, polypropylene is highly resistant to heat, making it suitable for use in cleaning and pasteurizing products. It also has low moisture absorption capabilities, at a maximum of 0,1%. Finally, polypropylene is fully recyclable.
Polypropylene is a lot like PE (polyethylene). They are both within the same price range, however, polypropylene is a lot stronger than polyethylene. Polypropylene is also quite similar to HDPE (High-density Polyethylene). Polypropylene can withstand higher temperatures than HDPE.
Polypropylene, also known as PP, is used in various industries. This means that we laser-cut polypropylene for a wide range of industries. PP is also known under the trade names, Appryl, Carlona, Luparen and Moplen. However, all of these names refer to the same type of PP plastic.
These are the PP characteristics:
- Corrosion resistant
- Low density
- Heat resistant (around 100°C)
- Environmentally friendly
- Resistant to chemical corrosion
- High rigidity
- Heat isolation
- High elasticity
- Great anti-adhesion properties
Due to these characteristics, PP is used in medical equipment, car parts, punching plates, syringes and filter materials.
