BCN3D PP GF30

PP GF30

Polypropylene is one of the most preferred thermoplastics in different industries, especially in the automotive sector. However, high level of reinforcement was always a problem in filament making.  PP GF30 contains special glass fibers that are designed for filament making and 3D printing. This will ensure the printed objects are functionally working, under certain temperature and mechanical loads. Thanks to its UV-resistance, it is more suitable than any other PP based filament for applications that are directly exposed to sunlight. PP inherently uptake lower moisture than PA.

In combination with high level of glass fiber reinforcement, PP GF30 is a filament of selection for exceptional working environments. PP GF30 combines great features that couldn’t be combined before: printing stiffer parts with UV resistance is now possible. PP GF30 is ideal when extreme stiffness is required in humid environments.
