Polypropylene experts are those who work with this second most widely produced thermoplastic (after polyethylene) and is manufactured using chain growth polymerization via Zigler-Natta catalysis. The global market for polypropylene is expected to be $156B by the year 2026. Polypropylene has a melting point that ranges between 130 to 171 deg.C, depending upon crystallinity and tacticity, and is relatively inexpensive compared to other thermoplastics. It is used in rigid and flexible packaging, injection molded parts, carpeting, ropes, non-woven goods, textiles and filters.
The credentials that one might expect to see in an expert in the field of polypropylene would include a degree (B.S., M.S. or PhD) in chemistry or polymer science coupled with a career in the area of thermoplastics and polymers, especially polypropylene. An expert in the area of polypropylene would be able to assist a client with selecting the grade and type of polypropylene or propylene copolymers for a given application, guidance on the appropriate additives for thermal and UV stability, adhesion promoters, IP strategy, performance attributes and processing guidance.
