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.
Prototypes that simulate end-products
Polypropylene 3D printing can be used to create functional prototypes that are made from the same material as the end-product.
Translucent and lightweight
Ultimaker PP filament is an excellent choice when a design requires translucent properties for aesthetic purposes.
