Polypropylene filaments – parameters
Its remarkable mechanical resistance and tensile strength make polypropylene an excellent material for the production of various complex forms. Due to the requirements for durability and flexibility at the same time, polypropylene filaments quickly dominated the market of products for the production of objects by AM. Polypropylene, it is successfully used both in advanced projects and in domestic use.
3D printing is already the standard method for the production of mechanical components, housings and three-dimensional models in various fields of science and industry. This technology is becoming more available and cheaper due to the increasing popularity of additive manufacturing methods. 3D printing guarantees a very high level of accuracy - mapping details on a given object.
In order to be able to print 3D objects, however, you need to equip yourself not only with 3D printing equipment, but also a thermoplastic. The polypropylene recommended in the industry can be such a material. Individual materials differ in terms of mechanical, optical and thermal properties, the ease of printing and, of course, the price, so you should carefully study all the possibilities before choosing. In practice, however, still one of the most interesting materials is the polypropylene (PP) presented in this category.
Polypropylene – thermoplastic material of the highest quality
In terms of chemicals, polypropylene (PP) is an organic material from the group of polyolefins. It is formed as a result of propene polymerization. It is a material that has been well known for several decades, but only recently has started to become more popular mainly due to its use in modern 3D printing.
One of the most important functional advantages of this material is its high chemical resistance. Polypropylene can be used in an environment of chemically aggressive compounds - acids, bases, salts and even solvents. Every day we use packaging, grocery bags or even toys and housings for electronic devices that are made of polypropylene.
In the case of 3D printing, polypropylene filament is particularly attractive due to its high resistance to mechanical damage. Polypropylene is characterized by excellent layer adhesion, non-toxic and odorless. It has a very high electrical resistance, which makes it a good insulator. Moreover, polypropylene is also transparent, has a good level of hydro-resistance and has a low density, which makes it possible to create durable but lightweight products.
Perfect 3D printing with highest-quality polypropylene (PP) filaments
Polypropylene is a fantastic material for 3D printing. Details printed with the use of PP filament are very precise, of very high quality, and in terms of chemical properties, they are even suitable for contact with food. The recommended printing parameters are as follows: bed temperature within the range of 80 oC, nozzle temperature: from 220 oC to 250 oC, printing speed - 35 mm / s, retraction 2 - 3 mm.
We know very well how attractive polypropylene is for people involved in 3D printing. That is why in our offer you can find the highest quality PP filaments from renowned manufacturers such as Fiberology. Choose from different color versions - natural, light gray, graphite, black. If you need contrasting and expressive colors for your project, check also deep red, expressive orange
