Proteus PP

Polypropylene
Extruded Grade • Natural Color

3A-DairyFDA

 

Description

Versatility is the word that best describes Proteus Co-Polymer. Perfect for fire truck tanks because it is inexpensive, easy to fabricate and won't crack from road vibration, Proteus Co-Polymer also works well in those orthotic devices that require a lower degree of rigidity. It can also be used in a variety of applications requiring chemical resistance and/or FDA compliance.

Features
  • High impact resistance strength
  • Better resistance to cracking at low temperatures than Homopolymer Polypropylene
  • More pliable than homopolymer
  • Meets food handling guidelines
  • Chemical- and corrosion-resistant
  • No moisture absorption
  • FDA and 3-A Dairy Compliant

Forms and Sizes
  • Plate (Length up to 120", Width up to 60", Thickness up to 1.5") Request a Quote!
