Key facts for buyers

Polymer format

Axpoly® recycled polypropylene is an extruded compound made with a strand pelletizer to yield regular cylindrical pellets of approximately 3mm L x 2 mm D.

Packaging formats

There are two packaging options for despatch and delivery:

  1. Standard format
    Woven polyester ‘big bags’ with fork lift carry loops and internal stabilising panels, mounted on a strong pallet base for reliable transport by road haulage or container shipment. Nominal 1 tonne capacity, varies with polymers type and density.
  2. Bulk tanker
    Up to 25 tonnes delivered in road tanker fitted with pneumatic unloading fan and pipework. For shipment into silos. Available on request.

Stock availability

Up to 5 tonnes of standard grades are usually available from stock and can be delivered within 2-3 days (UK). Larger quantities and full-load volumes are made to order. Forward orders can be scheduled for guaranteed availability. Check with our Sales Order team on +44 161 426 7731 or email

Polymer properties

All our standard grades have stable and consistent properties controlled under our ISO9001 processing system. Please see individual product information sheets for the defined properties of each grade.


We offer a range of standard grades across both general purpose and more specialised applications where increased strength, stiffness and melt flow is required. We can also modify Axpoly® polypropylene properties on request, and will work with you to benchmark exactly the right formulation for the intended application.

Axpoly® PP51 1000 – standard general purpose

Axpoly® PP51 1000 is an extremely consistent, reliable and dimensionally-stable general purpose moulding grade. It is particularly suitable for construction products, and is the plastic of choice for one of the UK’s major pipe manufacturers.

Axpoly® PP51 1004 – enhanced general purpose

Axpoly® PP51 1004 includes improver additives, giving an improved finish suitable for household and consumer goods.

Filled polypropylene grades

Our filled polypropylene grades are suitable for applications needing a higher density material with greater stiffness, such as automotive components. An example is our medium range filled grade Axpoly® PP51 1011. This is a filled black copolymer polypropylene resin. Other fill levels are also available.
