Reasons to choose Ultimaker PP
Ultimaker PP material properties make it popular with engineers and manufacturers worldwide. For example, the filament's chemical resistance makes it ideal for 3D printing bottles and containers as functional prototypes that can hold a liquid product.
Chemically resistant to a wide range of acids and bases, including industrial cleaning agents
Retains its form after torsion, bending, or flexing
High electrical resistance for good electrical insulation
Low density, resulting in lightweight parts
Choose Ultimaker PP filament and your 3D printed part will have some impressive properties:
High strength-to-weight ratio
Shore D hardness of 45
27.1 kJ/m² izod impact strength
200% elongation at break
Ultimaker PP material is often chosen for the following applications:
Durable and rugged
Living hinge on a container PP has high fatigue resistance and does not break when repeatedly bent. Clamps and living hinges can remain functional over the lifetime of the part.
Prototypes simulate end products
PP is widely used in end products. Create functional prototypes and print in the same material as the end product for the ultimate in prototyping.
Translucent and lightweight
PP features good layer bonding, and it is an excellent choice when the design requires transfer of light for aesthetic or other reasons.
Ultimaker PP can be printed on the Ultimaker S5, Ultimaker S3, and Ultimaker 3. It is officially supported for single-extrusion prints.
