Ultimaker PP Polypropylene filament is now available from store.redstack.com.au. Polypropylene (PP) is one of the most commonly used plastics in the world. It's a favorite material of many manufacturers and engineers and is utilised across a wide range of applications. With its toughness and exceptional fatigue resistance, it is a great material for creating functional prototypes and durable end use parts. With a low density, polypropylene can be used to produce lightweight parts with a high strength to weight ratio.
Polypropylene also delivers outstanding temperature, electrical, and chemical resistance. It can withstand temperatures up to 105°C, it can be used as an electrical insulator, and can tolerate a wide range of bases and acids - including industrial cleaning chemicals. Polypropylene is also semi flexible, translucent, and has low friction and smooth surfaces, making it suitable for producing everything from electrical components to working hinges. With a high fatigue resistance, it does not break when repeatedly bent, allowing it to be used for a broad range of applications such as clamps and hinges.
