Polypropylene, a versatile material
Polypropylene (PP) is partially crystalline thermoplastic polymer that is obtained by polymerizing propylene. It belongs to the polyolefins group. Polypropylene is one of the most versatile polymers with applications both as a plastic and as a fibre.
At Repsol, we have a wide product range enabling us to offer technical solutions to all end markets for polypropylene. Thanks to our technology, we are able to provide all four of the main polypropylene families.
Discover our polypropylene range
We work to offer our customers the best technical solutions for all end-use markets.
This new range is specially designed for the additive manufacturing technologies FGF (fused granular fabrication) and FFF (fused filament fabrication), also known as FDM (fused deposition modeling). It is particularly recommended for the manufacturing of both aesthetic and functional prototypes and also final pieces in sectors such as automotive, healthcare packaging, toy, leisure, and sports.
Repsol’s array of homopolymers spans a wide range of fluidity indexes, in injection applications and extrusion applications for ultrafine fibres.
This Repsol range addresses the most demanding sectors in terms of organoleptic and optical properties. The improvements to these properties position our PP in new segments. Repsol’s range includes products for injection, cast film and blow moulding.
Block or heterophasic copolymers
Repsol offers a wide variety of materials that can be adapted to all kinds of requirements especially in terms of optimizing the stiffness/impact balance, and all are available with different types of additives: UV protection, antistatic, slip, nucleating agents and low gels for film and graphic arts applications. They are used for numerous articles such as cases and containers for transportation, packaging for foodstuffs, high mechanical performance waste or storage bins, pallets, household items and storage cabinets, technical parts, etc.
Repsol has over 25 years of experience developing polypropylene compounds. These products are mainly supplied to the Automotive Industry for components for interiors, exterior, and under-the-hood. Repsol also offers a comprehensive range of polypropylene compounds for household appliances.
