Overview

PP (Polypropylene) is a semycrystalline thermoplastic, known for its resistance to chemical agents. It is completely inert and does not easily interact with any substance, for this reason it is commonly used for the packaging of food and chemicals.

It is a flexible and durable material, with a high resistance to impacts and wear.

Compatibility: All BCN3D Printers.

Applications

  • Ideal for light parts
  • Commonly used in bottles, packaging and containers
  • In automotive for non-structural areas of the body
  • Plugs and stoppers
  • Chemically aggressive environments
  • Living hinges
  • Pipes, joints and elements in contact with water
