Polypropylene plastics are an economical alternative to HDPE sheet or ABS. Polypropylene sheet provides good impact resistance, considerable thermal resistance, and excellent chemical resistance. Other features and benefits of polypropylene sheeting include:
- Acid resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Moisture resistance
- Stress crack resistance
- Stiff, yet flexible
Polypropylene plastic sheets are the choice plastic for containers due to its easy manufacturability, impact resistance, and low cost. Additionally, polypropylene plastic is frequently used in semiconductor and chemical industries due to its superior durability in corrosive environments. This plastic sheeting is also available as corrugated polypropylene.

Qualities of Polypropylene Sheeting
Because polypropylene sheets are very similar to ABS plastic and HDPE, they have similar qualities. Polypropylene sheeting provides a good strength to weight ratio having moderate strength in relation to other plastic sheeting materials. It has a good balance of chemical, electrical, and thermal properties and is suited for environments at risk for bacteria build-up thanks to its high-gloss, hard surface.
Although polypropylene sheeting is not UV stabilized, it is USDA-approved and meets necessary FDA standards. One of the biggest benefits to using polypropylene sheeting instead of ABS sheeting or HDPE sheeting is the ability to heat form, weld, and shape. Additionally, polypropylene is rigid, has excellent corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, and fair impact resistance. For more plastic sheeting options, check out the fluted polypropylene sheets.
