PP GF30 BCN3D Filaments

Light / Chemical resistant / UV resistance

125,00

Overview

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.

Compatibility: Only with BCN3D Epsilon 3D printer.

Applications

  • Parts exposed to aggressive and humid environments or in contact with chemicals.
  • Rigid structural elements such as brackets, bars, shafts and frames.
  • Automotive and aerospace industry.
