Polypropylene Homopolymer (PPH)

Alternative and trade names
Bormed™, Hostacom®, Moplen®


It is an unfilled PP homopolymer, with low-medium melt flow rate. Different Stifness is achievable with wide range of grades. Film grades have high gloss, transparency and dimentional stability. Grades are also available for food industry.
