10 - 40% Talc Filled PP is a subcategory of Polypropylene. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its flexural modulus ranges from 160 to 400 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 3000 to 3775 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 4500 to 5100 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 0.6 to 4 J/cm. Its elongation at break ranges from 20 to 50 %. Its hardness ranges from 83 to 88 Rockwell R. Its specific gravity ranges from 0.97 to 1.24. Its molding pressure ranges from 15 to 20 MPa.

Polypropylene, also known as PP, is a thermoplastic, (crystalline), polymer. Common trade names are Marlex HGL and Fortilene 1800 series (FDA materials). copolymer Its key attributes are high lubricity, high resistance to flexing (excellent material for living hinges), excellent dielectric strength and chemical resistance, good impact strength, and high solvent resistance. It is inexpensive and electroplatable, but it is difficult to paint, print on, or bond to. It will be attacked by fuming nitric acid and degraded by UV and ionizing radiation. PP can be used to make medical syringes, beakers, and parts for auto interiors.
