Amber polypropylene vials, with tabbed white polyethylene snap caps. Made in the USA
Polypropylene (PP), is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide wariety of applications including
packaging, food packaging, textiles, clothing and carpets, appliances, furniture,
laboratory equipment and automobile components. Polypropylene can also be made into disposable
containers for liquids, powders, and parts of all kinds. Plastic pails, car batteries, pharmacy
prescription bottles, cooler containers and kitchen ware are often made of polypropylene.
It is rugged, stiff and unusually resistant to many chemicals, solvents, bases and acids. Polypropylene has good resistance to fatigue. Polypropylene has a melting point betwee 160 and 166 degrees C (320 to 331 degrees F). Polypropylene is naturally opaque, but can be made nearly transparent with the addition of clarifiers. Polypropylene is easily recycled and has the number "5" as its resin identification code.
Polyethylene (PE) is the most common plastic. One of the forms of polyethylene is low density polyethylene (LDPE). LDPE is very flexible and is used widely in manufacturing containers, food containers, bottles, tubing, computer and laboratory parts. Its most common use is in plastic bags. Polyethylene has excellent chemical resistance. The melting point for low-density polyethylene is 105 to 115 degrees C (221 to 239 degrees F). Polyethylene is easily recycled and has the number "4" as its resin identification code.
