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.
