It is the lightest synthetic fiber, although polypropylene It has low resistance to sunlight, approximately 900 hours, This inconvenience can be remedied in part by mixing the raw material stabilizer additives. Likewise and upon request, it can be manufactured in any color.
Different materials are obtained through different manufacturing procedures:
- Polypropylene Monofilament
- Multifilament Polypropylene
- Polipropileno Fibre-Film (Rafia)


· Density: 0.91
· Heat reaction: Softens at 145 ° C and melts at 165 ° C
· Sensitive to: Some industrial solvents
· Resists: Acids, alkalis and oils.
