Polypropylene webbing is available in the widest range of colours and is excellent for producing webbing with coloured stripes. It is highly resistant to chemicals and a very popular fibre. However, it is worth noting that polypropylene is not as strong or as abrasion-resistant as nylon or polyester.
Polypropylene is a versatile fibre which can lend itself to a wide range of applications. If neither high UV resistance nor high strength features are required, Polypropylene webbing is a cost-effective solution which can be used in applications such as luggage straps, bag handles, dog collars and leashes, to name just a few.
Due to its many useful properties, Polypropylene is suitable for both commercial and leisure uses. Polypropylene is light and has a low water absorption rate which means it is highly buoyant. These features make it an ideal webbing for some Marine applications. Polypropylene can also be used in some lighter weight lifting applications.
