Ultimaker PP custom clamp

Ultimaker PP

Ultimaker PP (polypropylene) is a durable, chemical resistant material. It has exceptional fatigue resistance, high levels of toughness, and a low-friction co-efficient. From electrical components to living hinges, PP is the go-to material for prototyping and end-use parts.

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

    Durable and rugged

    Ultimaker PP has high fatigue resistance and does not break when repeatedly bent. Clamps and living hinges can remain functional for the lifetime of the printed part.
