Polypropylene is the raw material used in the manufacture of non-woven fabrics,
which is extremely versatile as a fiber-forming material. It can be used in a wide
range of fibrous forms. They can be softened sufficiently to bond with other fibers,
hence reducing the need for chemical binding. Because of superior characteristics,
performance, and low cost compared to other synthetic fibers, PP fibers are widely
used in this industry and dominate the non-woven market. The fabrics made from PP are
used for manufacturing hygiene products such as baby diapers and adult incontinence.
Other applications of PP are commonly found in home furnishings and automobile market.
