Benefits of Using Polypropylene in a Laboratory Setting

Polypropylene is known for its chemical and corrosion resistance properties. It does not absorb water like some other plastics, will not mold or deteriorate, has low electrical conductivity, and has a very high impact and temperature resistance. LAS understands your laboratory equipment investment needs, which is why we build durable and high-performance polypropylene products for corrosion-resistance across many applications. LAS also fabricates components from other plastics such as PVC, PVDF, Fire-retardant Polypropylene, and Polyethylene.
