Depending on composition, polypropylenes (PP) are classified into homopolymers and copolymers. Homopolymers are solely composed of propylene molecules, while copolymers are produced from the compound of propylene and other substances. Copolymers are further divided into block and random copolymers. Block copolymers have good impact resistance, whereas random copolymers are more transparent.
