″MCP HP550J″ is a polypropylene homopolymer particularly suitable for the extrusion of sheet for thermoforming, film yarn and monofilament. This grade combines suitable processability with good mechanical properties. ″MCP HP550J″ is designed for the production of films that can be converted into stretched tapes for weaving applications. Textile film yarns with a denier count of not more than 1100 to 1200 are used for the production of carpet backings, bags, industrial fabrics, mats and artificial grass. Film yarn with a denier count ranging from 3000 to 28000 is used for baler twines, packaging twines and ropes. ″MCP HP550J″ is suitable for food contact.
