PPCP Sheets And Its Various Applications

PPCP Sheets are manufactured from PPCP or polypropylene copolymer which is non reactive, non flammable, colorless solid with no odor. These sheets are a vinyl polymer from the family of polyolefin which are counted amongst the main polymers in terms of processing and applications. These sheets of polypropylene copolymer are highly versatile and their processes of production cater a wide range of uses in engineering and chemical industries for their particular applications.

These sheets are available in different stock forms like rectangular, round, tubes, square bars, pipes and pipe fittings and blocks. These sheets have excellent weld ability and so these are hugely used in the fabrication of chemical processing tanks and storage tanks. These sheets are also used in various applications in numerous industries. The other products which are fabricated with these sheets include filters, impellers, strainers, valves, nozzles and many other diverse industrial applications.

The PPCP or polypropylene copolymer is generally transported and stored in 1 MT FIBC jumbo bags or 25 kg bags. In plastic processing industries the PPCP is utilized as the raw material in industry of plastic processing. Polypropylene copolymer is not a non hazardous material and so long term or short term inhalation due to its overexposure does not source any harmful health effect. Polypropylene copolymer should be kept away from sunlight and heat and must be stored and handled in a well ventilated and cool place. These sheets of PPCP are used only in industrial applications and while using the product, adequate ventilation should be provided and for good occupational hygiene the principals should be followed. These sheets are not categorized as dangerous for use and supply. The dust released during the fabrication and production of these sheets does not pose any threat to the environment.

More than 45 million metric tons is used worldwide in a year. Polypropylene copolymer is prepared by Bulk phase, Gas phase and Slurry Phase Polymerization utilizing ethylene and propylene as heterogeneous catalyst and feed stock. Polypropylene copolymer is available in a colorless solid form without odor which is non reactive with environment. Polypropylene copolymer is extensively utilized in plastic processing industry for fabricating a variety of products like sheets, boxes, packaging films, containers, FIBC, bags, home ware, personal care and hygiene combs, home care, brushes, appliances, medicals & surgical equipments, industrial products, automotive furniture and various articles used in day to day life.
Polypropylene copolymer exists as a solid granule under normal conditions. On exposure to moisture and sunlight polypropylene copolymer is susceptible to degradation. PPCP sheets floats in water as polypropylene copolymer is insoluble in water. These sheets have low mobility in soil. These sheets are non biodegradable and it is less toxic to the aquatic organisms. Polypropylene copolymer is unlikely to cause any harm to biological treatment processes.

Polypropylene copolymer is non hazardous and non toxic material and is considered as a safe substance to be in contact for animals and humans. These sheets provide low acute toxicity in inhalation. These sheets provide no evidence of irritant effects on skin with contact for use and normal handling.

PPCP Sheets are easily available online. Persons or organizations interested can browse the internet for availing these sheets directly from the manufacturers.
