Polyester is a thermoplastic polymer resin and offers
itself to a number of applications particularly
synthetic fibres, food containers, liquid containers,
beverage, thermoforming applications and engineering
resins often in combination with glass fibre.
Polyester is also one of the most used raw materials for

Polypropylene is also a thermoplastic polymer which is
used for a wide range of applications such as reusable
containers, loudspeakers, packaging, ropes, automotive
components and polymer banknotes.
This material has little branching which gives it
stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength than
lower density polyethylene.
Itís also more opaque, harder, and can withstand higher
temperatures; however it cannot withstand normally
required autoclaving conditions.
