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.
Polypropylene spools come in 0.5kg. 2.85mm diameter and lower density than other filaments.
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 the first choice for engineers and people who require extremely resilient parts.
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 the transfer of light for aesthetic or other reasons.
