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.

OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Thanks for pushing the order through in time. We were happy with the parts and the dimensional accuracy was very good in the vertical direction which isnt always the case with SLS."
"For small detailed parts, the quality was excellent."
