Propylux is Westlake Plastic’ family of polypropylene resins. This semi-crystalline, opaque off-white thermoplastic offers broad chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, hydrolysis resistance, and toughness. While polypropylene has lower heat resistance and mechanical properties compared to semi-crystalline “engineering” grade thermoplastics like polyamide, POM, and polyesters, it can be compounded with a wide range of reinforcements and fillers to extend its mechanical properties and heat resistance performance. It is readily colored and can be shaped by all common melt processing and thermoforming methods and is easy to machine. Westlake Plastics extrudes and compression molds Propylux across several product sub-families including Propylux DS, Propylux VF, Propylux HS, Propylux HS2, Propylux SD-A, Propylux CN-P and Proplyux CN-F.

  • Propylux CN-P (PP)

    PROPYLUX CNP

    Propylux CN-P (PP)

    Propylux CN-P is a conductive polypropylene. It is a carbon powder filled, lightweight material with good chemical resistance, has low water absorption. As it contains carbon powder for efficacy, it is not considered ideal for clean room environments. Propylux is approximately 30% lighter weight than Pomalux.

  • Propylux SD-A (PP)

    PROPYLUX SDA

    Propylux SD-A (PP)

    Propylux SD-A is non-carbon-filled, permanently static-dissipative polypropylene (PP). Our most popular ESD Material, Propylux SD-A exhibits extremely low outgassing, is non-sloughing, and acceptable for use in clean room environments. In addition, it is light weight, weldable, easily machined, and available in natural, caramel, and black colors.
