Product Description
SABIC® PP 
500P
SABIC® PP 500P is a medium flow, multipurpose grade for extrusion and injection moulding applications.

If applied for extrusion this grade shows an excellent stretch ability and is therefore suitable for tapes and strapping, high tenacity yarns and carpet backing. For thermoforming it shows a unique balance between transparency, impact resistance and thickness uniformity. SABIC PP 500P is suitable for production of injection moulded articles e.g. caps and closures and house ware products, where this grade shows a high stiffness, combined with a fair impact resistance and very good surface hardness.

SABIC® PP 500P is a medium flow grade typically used in extrusion applications like sheet and thermoforming.

SABIC® PP 500P is typically used in dairy, flower pots, yellow fats and disposables plates and cups. However, customers use this grade also in combination with fillers like Talc and CaCO3.

The product mentioned herein is in particular not tested and therefore not validated for use in pharmaceutical/medical applications.
