Due to its thermal and mechanical properties, this semi-crystalline material belongs to the polymer group of standard plastics. It has a good rigidity and hardness. PP is not prone to stress cracking. Homopolymeric Polypropylene has a very low density and a very high heat deflection temperature in the group of polyolefins. The chemical resistance is very high. The additional designation “HT” in this medical grade material stands for high temperature resistant; thanks to our specifically developed post-treatment, the heat resistance increases into a range which allows a repeated steam sterilisation at 2 bar (134°C).
The raw materials used for the production of the round rods and sheets in white colour comply with regulations of FDA and 10/2011/EC for food contact materials.
