Polypropylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that is included in the category of volume plastics. The material exists as homopolymer and random- or blockcopolymer, depending on the polymerization method. Homopolymers usually have higher stiffness with copolymers that usually have better impact resistance and low temperature properties. PP is commonly used as the base polymer in compounding with glass fibers or mineral fillers which are added for better mechanical properties and dimensional stability.
