Introduction

Today, prominent automotive fuel system manufacturers are in the process of transition to plastic fuel tanks. Polypropylene fuel tanks are produced by extrusion or rotational molding. In comparison with aluminum and steel fuel tanks, plastic tanks are resistant to scratches and chipping, have lower weight, require no welding, have lower costs, and are non-corrodible.

Furthermore, polypropylene offers advantages of durability and lightweight. Extruded polypropylene OEM components help decrease overall vehicle weight and fuel consumption.

In recent years, the adaptability of polypropylene (PP) has gained significant attraction from manufacturers. Therefore, it is expected that, polypropylene (PP) consumption will continue to increase in automotive components in the foreseeable future.
