Raw materials

hPP – Homopolymer polypropylene

  • Specific weight: 0.9-0.915 g/cm3 (56.19-57.12 lb/ft3)
  • Melting temperature: 162-168°C (323.6-334.4°F)
  • Tensile strength: 34-37 MPa
  • Young’s modulus: 1200-2000 Pa
  • Yield elongation: 5-10%
  • Break elongation: 500-700%
  • Working temperature: +0°C – +90°C (32°F – 194°F)
  • Max working temperature (short period): +100°C (212°F)


Light material, resistant to chemical substances (as salts, acids and strong alkalis) and with a high mechanical strength. It is used for bi-oriented (stretched) products. Suitable for direct food contact.


cPP – copolymer polypropylene

  • Specific weight: 0.895-0.9 g/cm3 (54.62-56.19 lb/ft3)
  • Melting temperature: 135-168°C (275-334.4°F)
  • Tensile strength: 25-30 MPa
  • Young’s modulus: 1000 Pa
  • Yield elongation: 5-10%
  • Break elongation: >500%
  • Working temperature: -20°C – 70°C (68°F – 158°F)
  • Max working temperature (short period): +80°C (176°F)


Slightly softer and more resistant to high temperature than the homopolymer but with similar mechanical features. Suitable for direct food contact.


PA6 (Nylon) -Polyamide 6

  • Specific weight: 1.12-1.14 g/cm3 (69.91-71.16 lb/ft3)
  • Melting temperature: 220-225°C (428-437°F)
  • Tensile strength: 80 MPa (dry) –55 MPa (wet)
  • Break elongation: 20-40% (dry) – 100% (wet)
  • Working temperature: -40°C – 105°C (-40 – 221°F)
  • Max working temperature (short period): 170°C (338°F)


It is an advanced polymer able to stand high temperatures and direct contact with oil, grease, fuel and other solvents. It shows a low friction coefficient and is resistant to abrasion, shocks and fatigue.
