30% Random Glass Mat PP is a subcategory of Polypropylene. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its molding pressure ranges from 1 to 2 MPa.

Polypropylene, also known as PP, is a thermoplastic, (crystalline), polymer. Common trade names are Marlex HGL and Fortilene 1800 series (FDA materials). homopolymer 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.
