PP

Functional filament with a wide range of applications

PP (Polypropylene) is a thermoplastic 3D printing filament and as well as being commonly used in daily life. PP filament is durable, break-resistant, fatigue-resistant, and semi-flexible. Parts that are 3D printed in PP are well-suited for uses that involve twisting, flexing, or bending. PP is also a contact-safe material for food, chemical, and medical applications, including orthopedic use due to its lightweight and low friction characteristics.

Printing Notifications:

  • Use special printing bed surface for the first layer adhesion, or Magigoo PP.
  • For a better bed adhesion, brim or raft are highly recommended.
  • Avoid dense and rectangular infill to prevent warping caused by PP crystallization.
