The abbreviation PP stands for polypropylene. It is a thermoplastic polymer, used in many products and bags, it is also referred to as polypropene. But in particular, producers and consumers generally use the original name.
Polypropylene was developed in the nineteen fifties and is resistant to chemical solvents, alkaline substances, acids and also bacterial growth. Therefore, polypropylene is also frequently used for medical equipment and for food packaging (including PP bags and PP film).
