PP GF30 BCN3D Filaments
High temperature / Chemical resistant / UV resistance
PP GF30 (Polypropylene 30% glass fibre) is a composite filament, filled with glass fibre for chemically resistant, lightweight and dimensionally stable parts. It is amongst the most used filled materials in the automotive industry, characterised by a long service life and able to resist to all weather conditions.

Your Extensive Guide to the Properties of 3D Printing FFF Filaments
This white paper dives deep into physico-mechanical properties and impact, heat and water resistances, by evaluating the performance of every material in the BCN3D portfolio.
Materials for 3D printing & In-depth on fibre-filled
Which is the strongest 3D printing material? And… is stronger always better? In this webinar, Materials Engineer Dario Destro will walk you through the different 3D printing filament types currently available in the market and their properties, with a special emphasis on fiber-filled materials.
An essential guide on fiber-filled materials for FFF 3D printing
With the consolidation of the FFF technology, filaments with a high level of additives and fillers have started to be accessible for 3D printing. These fiber-filled materials count on improved mechanical properties and higher thermal resistance, which makes them ideal for engineering projects of all types.
ELISAVA Racing Team’s mountain rescue motorcycle taken to new heights by 3D printing
Elisava Racing Team are creating a fully electric, intelligent motorcycle equipped for mountain rescue in hostile terrains. Collaborating with us at BCN3D, 19 end-use parts were printed using 3D FFF technology in a variety of different technical materials and sizes.
Chemical resistanceDue to its chemical composition, each thermoplastic polymer is characterised by a different resistance to the different classes of chemicals, including apparently harmless substances such as food and cleaning products
How to print
For BCN3D Stratos users:
Get a proper printing profile for PP GF30 using the ones integrated into the BCN3D Stratos. Download the latest version of BCN3D Cura.
To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo Pro PPGF.
Only compatible with BCN3D Epsilon when paired with the Hotend X.
Product design end-use partsText: The use of PPGF GF30 was employed for the manufacturing of the fender; one of the pieces most prone to breaking from shocks and frictions. The material, capable of withstanding such movements, is also beneficial because it is lighter than PAHT and the fender is the largest piece.
Hose nozzleParts printed in PP GF30 withstand the harshest environments, keeping their shape and functionality.
Climbing DamsWhen printing structural parts, choose PP GF30 for greatest durability and weather resistance.
Resistance to aggressive environments, humidity and high pressurePP GF30 is ideal to manufacture rigid and strong parts used in aggressive environments.
