Ultimaker Materials

We’ve developed filaments with superior formulation for incredible print quality. And to optimize every print, there are Cura material profiles that can take care of everything or give you total freedom.

 

Ultimaker Ecosystem

We’ve spent thousands of hours developing Cura profiles to suit our materials, so you can reliably print with optimized print quality. It means that when you’re ready to go, all you need to do is click print – and everything works seamlessly.

For best results with Engineering filaments, consider the Advanced 3D Printing Kit for added reliability.

 

Ultimaker PP (Polypropylene)

Ultimaker PP (polypropylene) is durable. It has high toughness, exceptional fatigue resistance, and low friction. It also has good chemical, temperature, and electrical resistance. PP is one of the most widely used plastics on the planet. From electrical components to living hinges, PP is the go-to material for prototyping and end-use products.

Translucent and lightweight:  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.

PP features good layer bonding, and it is an excellent choice when the design requires transfer of light for aesthetic or other reasons.

 

Reasons to choose Ultimaker PP

PP is popular worldwide with engineers and manufacturers for a wide variety of applications.

  • Durable with high toughness and fatigue resistance (PP retains its shape after torsion, bending, and/or flexing)
  • Low friction and smooth surfaces
  • Good heat resistance (up to 105°C)
  • Semi-flexible
  • Chemical resistance to a wide range of bases and acids, including industrial cleaning agents
  • High electrical resistance makes it a good electrical insulator
  • Very resistant to moisture
  • Translucent
  • Low density resulting in lightweight parts (high strength-to-weight ratio)
  • Excellent layer bonding
  • Adequate bed adhesion and low warping when using Advanced 3D Printing Kit stickers
  • Recyclable, for low environmental impact

 

Shop3D Notes:  

Polypropylene spools come in 0.5kg. 2.85mm diameter and lower density than other filaments.

* All individually sold Ultimaker filament now comes with a resealable zipper bag with silica desiccant for proper storage care for prolonged periods of time. *

Ultimaker PP is a good choice for printing low-friction end-use parts that have good fatigue resistance and toughness. When printing using one of our extensively tested Cura profiles for Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 3, you get reliable results and a seamless 3D printing experience.

This should be a first choice for engineers and people who require extremely resilient parts.
