The Process

Starting from melting the PP beans, the melted plastic is leaked into the extruder machine which has the diameter required, giving shape to the plastic pipe. The pipe is cooled down with water running on the sides of the machine, and afterwards it is cut in the desired length. Bending, if requested, and packaging, in respective material and quantities, follow the extrusion, and the final product is ready to be delivered.

The raw material

The Polypropylene(PP) is a linear hydrocarbon polymer, expressed as CnH2n. As one of the thermoplastics, it is derived from cracking naphtha, a fraction of crude oil. It was chemically produced for the first time in Spain in 1954 and is widely commercialized since 1957 in numerous sectors, such as plastic products manufacturing, automotive, sailing and mechanical components, medical equipment, clothing, as well as films, tapes and all versions of packaging materials. PP shows excellent resistance in temperature, fatigue, acids and alcohol, while maintaining low density, stability in low temperatures and low moisture absorbance.

Korplast solely chooses Hellenic Petroleum SA as its PP supplier, in order to acquire pure and high quality material, that is not pre-processed or recycled.
