Introduction

PP

PolyPropylene is a well-known, versatile plastic, a kind of 3D printing material, with interesting properties that makes it unique, and in some cases a convenient alternative to PA12.

Key Benefits
Extremely easy to process, 136°C melting point
Suitable for applications that requires ductility, like snap-fits or living hinges
10% lighter than PA12
High chemical resistance
Low friction coefficient
Suitable for small to big parts
25% lower purchase price than PA12
Lower refresh rate than PA12 (that gives an extra economical advantage)
