We manufacture Polypropylene which is an
economical part of Lead Acid Battery recycling.
The Plastic Boxes obtained from Battery Scraps
are processed to our Plastic Section in order to
produce profitable Plastic Chips or the
Polypropylene or polypropene (PP Chips) is a
thermoplastic polymer, used in a wide variety of
applications, including plastic parts and
reusable containers of various types, thermal
pants and shirts made for the military,
laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive
components, and polymer banknotes. It has been
found that mechanical recycling is the best
recovery option for large PP automotive
components, while energy recovery is the
solution for most small plastic parts.
Polypropylene’s are available to meet the needs
of various fabrication processes such as
extrusion, injection molding, thermoforming,
blow molding, biaxially oriented film (BOPP),
fiber spinning, slit tape, extrusion coating,
Production of polypropylene takes place by
slurry, solution or gas phase process, in which
the propylene monomer is subjected to heat and
pressure in the presence of a catalyst system.
Polymerization is achieved at relatively low
temperature and pressure and the product yielded
is translucent, but readily colored. Differences
in catalyst and production conditions can be
used to alter the properties of the plastic.
PP does not present stress-cracking problems and
offers excellent electrical and chemical
resistance at higher temperatures.
