Need Polypropylene balls


(1998)

I am searching for solid spherical balls of polypropylene, 25mm (1") or less diameter. Color is unimportant, surface finish must be very smooth, with no sharp bumps or pits. I need samples and production volumes if successful.

United States Plastic Corp in Lima, Ohio sells solid balls from 1/8" to 1.0" in 6 different plastics including PP.

Sorry we didn't see your inquiry sooner. Within our line of microfine polyolefin powders we offer a spherical PP powder of average 15-20 microns in diameter. We also have some which are as small as 2 microns in average diameter. Please let us know.

Hi, Bill. Well, he did say 25 mm or less. And 2 microns certainly is less. In fact, it would take roughly 1 trillion 953 billion of those balls to make one of the size he's looking for. You must have a lot of balls to post that response.smiley
