We expand our range of additive manufacturing products with this new polypropylene product that has significant advantages over the base grades. The fiberglass with which it is added provides much more mechanical resistance to pieces and allows us to manufacture filaments used in sectors such as the automotive, industrial, construction, naval, or aerospace sector. The grade gives the final pieces better resistance and rigidity, making it ideal for tools, staples, manipulators, clamps, industrial spare parts, or robotic hands. Additionally, it is a 100% recyclable grade.
Eva García Biosca, advisor engineer at Polyolefin Technical Assistance and Development, points out: “This new grade allows us to access new markets and offers a new polypropylene that is an excellent option for industrial applications, where high mechanical resistance is required."
It is already available in our product catalog and the Recreus catalog as a filament, jointly with the previous development in PP3D polypropylene.
