Why Olefin ?
PP icon-02-02.png

Polypropylene, a synthetic resin built up by the polymerization of propylene, is molded or extruded into many plastic products in which toughness, flexibility, light weight, and heat resistance are required. It can be spun into fibres for employment in industrial and household textiles.
The polymer shares some of the properties of polyethylene, but it is stronger, stiffer, and harder, and it softens at higher temperatures.

A large proportion of polypropylene production is melt-spun into fibres. Polypropylene fibre is a major option in home furnishings such as upholstery and indoor-outdoor carpets. Numerous industrial end uses exist as well, including fishing gears, rope and cordage, disposable nonwoven fabrics for diapers and medical applications, and nonwoven fabrics for ground stabilization and reinforcement in construction and road paving. These applications take advantage of the toughness, resilience, water resistance, and chemical inertness of the polymer.

Three mapping of Olefin characteristics, in respective category that explains why Olefin is a strong and sustainable option.


Olefin by its physical & chemical nature is an environmental synthetic fabric.

Polypropylene is a linear hydrocarbon polymer compound, no benzene ring in the chemical formula, is eventually decomposed to water and carbon dioxide (CO2), vapor no harmful and hazardous component during degradation and landfill incineration.

Comparison of Olefin and other fibers

Specific Gravity2.png

Polypropylene is lighter than water, so it is considered the best for marine rope and swimsuit.

Polypropylene is of the lowest thermal conductivity. It maintains heat and keep warm, so it is considered the best for thermal underwear and inner side of wetsuit.

Water Content2.png

Polypropylene contains low water content.It is suitable for socks to keep feet fresh, dry, antibacterial, and deodorant.Using it in diaper reduces rash since there is no moisture remains on skin.

Polypropylene has better dry speed than other fibers, it is suitable for Home textiles.
