Polypropylene (PP)

"Polypropylene Rollstock Structures at the cutting edge of technology."

Our expertise in polypropylene allows us to create custom performance barrier and non-barrier structures to fit your needs. Our options include homopolymer, random copolymer, impact copolymer, and custom blends, as well as a range of unique formulation choices. It is generally considered to be safe for use with food and other consumables, as it does not leach harmful chemicals into the contents of the package.

The advantage of polypropylene

Polypropylene has many advantages, including being strong, lightweight, and flexible. It is also resistant to many chemicals, making it a good material for a wide range of applications. Additionally, it is easy to mold and shape, making it a popular choice for manufacturing. Anacotte Packaging offers a sustainable solution for poly


Polypropylene features a lowest density compared to other rigid plastic packaging materials, such as polystyrene and PET. This makes it lighter weight and more efficient to use in thermoforming and form-fill-seal processes. As a result, polypropylene packaging can offer a higher yield and lower cost per package, while using less plastic overall. Compared to polystyrene, it has a density reduction of 12%, and compared to PET, it has a density reduction of 30%.


Polypropylene has superior performance and is recyclable, even in high-barrier formulations. It is also more sustainable throughout the production process due to its lightweight nature. This leads to several downstream sustainability advantages, such as reduced CO2 equivalents, less solid waste by weight, and lower fuel consumption and emissions compared to other materials. This allows individual brands and businesses to easily meet or exceed sustainability targets. Additionally, polypropylene can be easily sorted within the recycling stream using water displacement methods.


Polypropylene is a versatile material that is used in a wide range of applications. It is commonly used in packaging, such as food containers and bottles, due to its strength, flexibility, and durability. It is also used in the automotive industry for parts such as battery cases, fuel tanks, and wheel covers. In the medical field, it is used for items such as syringe barrels, tubing, and surgical instruments. Additionally, polypropylene is used in the production of textiles, carpets, and plastic sheets. It is a popular material due to its low cost, strength, and resistance to a wide range of chemicals.


Polypropylene offers high heat resistance, making it compatible with a range of processing methods, including hot-fill, retort, aseptic, and high pressure processing. It has a low melting point, which allows it to be heated and formed into different shapes using a range of processing techniques. It can be injection molded, extruded, thermoformed, and blow molded, among other methods. Its low density and high melting point make it a useful material for a wide range of applications, including packaging, automotive parts, and medical devices.


Breaks down into Water, Carbon Dioxide, and Oxygen Solution

Turns Polypropylene into Bioplastics

Adding technologies to polypropylene to make it degradable. It helps to reduce the amount of plastic waste that accumulates in the environment. The product will biodegrade in a continuous and irreversible process, leaving only carbon dioxide, water, and biomass as byproducts. There will be no toxic residues or heavy metals left behind. The biodegradation process is unstoppable and will continue until the product has completely broken down.

Performance Grade Formulation

Polypropylene in containers

Anti-scratch BOPP is treated with a coating or layer that helps to protect the plastic from scratches and other forms of damage. This coating can be applied to the surface of the plastic using a variety of techniques, such as coating, laminating, or extrusion. The coating helps to make the plastic more resistant to scratches, which can improve its performance and durability. Anti-scratch BOPP is a useful material for a wide range of applications, particularly in the packaging industry. It is commonly used to make bags, pouches, and other packaging materials that need to be strong and durable, but also need to resist scratching and other forms of damage. Our anti-scratch BOPP comes with matte and glossy choices.
