Polypropylene Carbonate (PPC)

PPC Plastic Properties

PPC for plastics applications is comparable or advantaged across most of the critical material property categories listed below. Thermal resistance is currently the only area where Novomer’s PPC performs worse than petro-based polymers. With additional development however, we expect to be able to improve this characteristic, so that the plastic can be used across a wider range of applications.

“Novomer’s precise catalytic system offers us many ways to tune the molecular structure of the polymer and modify the properties that result to meet specific application needs.”

Novomer Executive Vice President, Polymers
