Description

Ultrafuse® PP GF30 contains 30% of special glass fibers that are designed for filament making and 3D printing. PP has an inherently lower moisture uptake than PA. In combination with its high level of glass fiber reinforcement, Ultrafuse® PP GF30 is a preferred filament for exceptional working environments. Thanks to its UV resistance it is more suitable than any other PP-based filament for applications directly exposed to sunlight.
