PPA GF

A high-temperature composite filament for end-use applications

Raise3D Industrial PPA GF is a glass fiber reinforced composite filament material based on PPA (polyphthalamide or high-performance/high-temperature Nylon). PPA is distinguished from aliphatic polyamides (e.g.PA6) by higher melting point, glass transition temperatures (Tg), lower moisture absorption, and greater dimensional stability. The incorporation of short glass fibers further improves upon the properties of PPA matrix, which makes PPA GF printed parts promising for end-use applications in automotive, aerospace, electrical and electronics (E&E) industry.

Printing Notifications:

  • Abrasion of the brass nozzle happens frequently when printing PPA GF. Using abrasion resistance nozzle, such as hardened steel and above grade nozzles, is highly recommended.
  • After the printing, it is recommended to anneal the model in the oven at 80-100°C for 4 to 8 hours and cool the room temperature naturally.
