Ultimaker PP (Polypropylene) Filament: Natural‚
ULTIMAKER PP:‚ Durable, chemical-resistant, and lightweight
Ultimaker PP offers excellent temperature, chemical, and fatigue resistance. Its toughness and low friction make it a perfect choice for prototyping and creating durable end-use models.
Ultimaker PP is a good choice for printing low-friction end-use parts that have good fatigue resistance and toughness. When printing using one of our extensively tested Cura profiles for Ultimaker 2+ or Ultimaker 3, you get reliable results and a seamless 3D printing experience.
Reasons to choose Ultimaker PP
PP is popular worldwide with engineers and manufacturers for a wide variety of applications.
- Durable with high toughness and fatigue resistance (PP retains its shape after torsion, bending, and/or flexing)
- Low friction and smooth surfaces
- Good heat resistance (up to 105‚°C)
- Chemical resistance to a wide range of bases and acids, including industrial cleaning agents
- High electrical resistance makes it a good electrical insulator
- Very resistant to moisture
- Low density resulting in lightweight parts (high strength-to-weight ratio)
- Excellent layer bonding
- Adequate bed adhesion and low warping when using Advanced 3D Printing Kit stickers
- Recyclable, for low environmental impact
NFC (Near Field Communication) Chip
There is a chip on the filament holder and a reader on the spool holder of the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker 3 Extended printers that identifies which material is being put on. Cura, the slicing software, adjusts the settings automatically to the best settings for this material (this also differentiates every color of filament).
