Isotactic, syndiotactic and atactic polypropylene are distinguished from one another, depending on the position of the methyl groups relative to the polymer chain. Various polymerization processes have been developed which can be run in bulk loop / gas phase (Spheripol®, Borstar®) or in the gas phase alone (Unipol™ PP, Novolen®, Innovene™ PP, Horizone PP). The end use of the polypropylene will ultimately decide the route required to achieve the desired properties. The various types of polypropylene, for example, homopolymer, impact copolymer or random copolymer will use a variety of catalyst components which are heavily dependent upon the licensed process in use.
We now offer purification adsorbents and bed supports for polypropylene applications, such as:
- Purification adsorbents for polypropylene manufacturing process streams (Dynocel® series)
- Bed support (Durocel® series)
