3D Printing in Polypropylene.

For your durable end use use designs choose our 'real' Polypropylene.

Our Polypropylene 3D printing materials are a good fit if you are prototyping designs intended for final production in Polypropylene or need to produce small batches of end use parts in 'real PP. (image © Stratasys)

Real Durable Polypropylene

We're excited to be able to offer you 'real' 3d printed polypropylene as an alternative to the simulated PP which has been the mainstay of the 3d printing industry for a number of years.

With material properties comparable to injection moulded Polypropylene, our 3d printed polypropylene gives you a material which offers excellent

  •     Elongation at Break
  •     Impact resistance
  •     Air and Water tight
  •     Chemical resistance.
  •     WRAS approved material.
  •     Large Format build volume
  •     Living Hinge designs (0.6mm thickness) 

Our 3d printed Polypropylene is appropriate for many applications including runs of functional and end-use parts including automotive, healthcare, and consumer goods markets.

What our customers say about our 3d printing service

"I have used 3D Alchemy on a number of occasions now to produce 'masters' for components for 1/24 scale models of vehicles. The service has always been fast, very efficient and friendly. I will continue to use them for all my future projects."

Steve, Scale Model Developer.

What our customers say about our 3d printing service

"Quick service, good quality and fast delivery.... Always pleased with the quality of the parts and delivery times. Prices were also very reasonable. I really appreciate how 3D Alchemy was able to accommodate some builds for parts I needed desperately."

Mikel, Industrial fastener company.
