PP Polypropylene

PP Polypropylene

Polypropylene or PP is one of the most widely used standard plastic materials. The stiffness of polypropylene makes it very suitable for technical applications and durable plastics. Polypropylene also exhibits excellent chemical resistance, watertightness, low moisture absorption and high elongation. The low cost makes it possible to expand 3D printing applications and volumes.

Benefits

  • High ductility
  • Exceptionally high rigidity
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High elongation at break (approx. 30%)
  • Air and water tight
  • Low cost

Applications

  • Pipes and ducts for air and other media
  • Water reservoirs and manifolds
  • Economic and functional prototypes
  • Multi-purpose industrial goods
stainless steeel 316L

Stainless Steel 316L

This metal was turned into filament, so it can be used in conventional FDM 3D printers. It combines design freedom with low cost, making metal 3D printing easier, faster and expandable for use cases where it has not been economically affordable before. The part is printed out of a filament that combines polymer and metal powder. After printing, the part undergoes debinding to remove the polymer. Once the polymer is removed, it undergoes a sintering process to give the metal its final properties.

Benefits

  • Affordable metal 3D printing
  • Fast production
  • Compatible with FDM printers
  • Industrial grade stainless steel

Applications

  • Tooling
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Functional prototypes
  • Small series production

TPU 88A

TPU 88A

TPU 88A is a polyurethane that offers strong, flexible and durable performance combined with excellent surface quality and level of detail. Parts have a stable white color, allowing easy finishing by smoothing, dyeing and coating. Typical applications include sports protective equipment, footwear, orthopedic models, automotive interior components and various industrial tools such as pipes and clamps.

Benefits

  • High elasticity, rebound and resistance to fatigue
  • Excellent surface quality and level of detail
  • High process stability and easy-to-print
  • Easy finishing incl. smoothing, dying and coating

Applications

  • Sports protection equipment
  • Footwear
  • Orthopaedic models
  • Car interior components
  • Tools, grippers and pipes
ABS+

ABS+

ABS+ is an engineering material that enables a very efficient 3D printing process. It is a simple to print material with good properties: very tough, hard and rigid, with chemical and abrasion resistance. It has therefore become one of the most widely used materials in FDM printing. ABS+ is not UV resistant. If UV resistance is needed, other materials such as ASA – with similar properties, but more difficult to print – are a good alternative.

Benefits

  • Easy to print
  • Direct printing on heated glass or print bed surfaces
  • High heat resistance
  • Adheres to water soluble support

Applications

  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Automotive part
  • General use

PAHTCF15

PAHT CF15

PAHT CF15 is a high-performance 3D printing filament with advanced mechanical properties, high dimensional stability and chemical resistance. It is made of polyamide with 15% carbon fiber. It is compatible with soluble support materials achieving great design freedom for parts that are used in challenging environments.

Benefits

  • High chemical resistance
  • High temperature resistance, up to 150 °C
  • Strong, rigid components
  • High dimensional stability
  • Low moisture absorption

Applications

  • Automotive / transportation
  • Complex geometries in challenging environments
  • Strong highly rigid parts
Aluminium

Aluminium AlSi10Mg

Aluminium AlSi10Mg is a widely used alloy in Additive Manufacturing and metal casting. It combines good strength and thermal properties with low weight and flexible post-processing possibilities. Different heat treatments can be applied to modify properties like ductility or conductivity.

Benefits

  • Good strength and hardness
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Good thermal and electrical conductivity
  • Properties could be modified with heat treatments

Applications

  • General engineering components
  • Lightweight designs
  • Aerospace and automotive components
  • Substitution of cast AlSi10Mg parts
