Polypropylene (PP) recyclate

In the contemporary landscape of plastics processing, sustainability is a critical factor. Polypropylene (PP) recyclate is a commendable, eco-friendly option, distinguishing itself from traditional plastics. Its utilization underscores a commitment to environmental stewardship, marking a significant stride in sustainable manufacturing practices.

PP stands for polypropylene, a plastic characterized by high tensile strength, chemical resistance and heat resistance. PP recyclate is made from used polypropylene plastic, which is collected, cleaned and shredded. The shredded material is then heated and processed into new products.    


  • Environmentally friendly: By using recycled material, fewer resources are consumed and waste production is minimized.
  • Chemical resistance: PP recyclate is resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making it ideal for use in the packaging industry.
  • High tensile strength: Despite its recycled origin, PP recyclate retains its high tensile strength, making it a durable material.


  • Packaging: PP recyclate can be used to produce packaging material for food and household products as it is resistant to chemicals and heat. Packaging made from PP recyclate is robust and can be easily cleaned and reused.
  • Paints and varnishes: PP recyclate is suitable for paint and varnish containers due to its chemical resistance, high strength and reusability.
  • Chemical products: PP recyclate's resistance to many chemicals makes it ideal for packaging detergents, fertilizers and other chemical products.
  • Disposal/recycling: PP recyclate is used to make robust, durable and easy-to-clean waste and recycling containers that help to reduce waste.

PP recyclate is a sustainable and versatile material with many advantages over conventional plastics. Production from recycled plastic helps to conserve resources and avoid waste. At the same time, the material's chemical resistance, heat resistance and high tensile strength make it ideal for applications in a wide range of industries.
Companies that rely on PP recyclate can improve their environmental footprint and save costs at the same time by opting for this sustainable material solution.
