Applications

While Kixx is an acknowledged name in gasoline and lubricants, Hiprene is GS Caltex’s polypropylene product that enjoys the same distinction. GS Caltex produces and supplies the high quality polypropylene, Hiprene, employing the Unipol process of fluidized bed-based vapor-phase polymerization.

Polypropylene (PP) is made by polymerizing propylene, the feedstock, in the presence of a catalyst. Due to easy processing and rigidity along with its heat-resistant and crystalline properties, polypropylene is used in a wide range of applications including film, pipes, various molded products, electronic goods and automotive components.

Depending on the orderly arrangement, polymerization leads to the formation of isotactic, syndiotactic and atactic polypropylene. Isotactic polypropylene has good crystalline, mechanical and thermal properties and is widely used in commercial applications. In general, PP compounds are isotactic.

Homo Polymer

Homo polymer is produced by polymerizing only propylene monomers. It has a fine stereoregularity and features a high crystallinity. With its excellent rigidity and thermal resistance, its main uses are film, yarn, food/clothing packaging materials, diapers, albums and tapes.
