Ultrafuse® PP

Ultrafuse PP is high-performance thermoplastic with low density, high elasticity and high resistance to fatigue.

The mechanical properties make it an ideal material for 3D-printing applications which have to endure high stress or strain. The filament has high chemical resistance and a high isolation value. PP is one of the most used materials in the world, due to its versatility and ability to engineer lightweight tough parts.

It is the buyer’s responsibility to determine the suitability of Ultrafuse® products for the intended application.

** To achieve faster printing speeds, it may be necessary to raise the nozzle temperature. The highest speed mentioned has been determined through our latest tests, ensuring optimal surface quality with a 0.4mm nozzle and 0.2mm layer height. Please note that as printing technology and equipment evolve, we anticipate the possibility of achieving even faster speeds in the future.
