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.

    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.

    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.
