Ultrafuse® PP GF30

Printing with a High Level of Reinforcement

PP is one of the most preferred thermoplastics in different industries, especially in the automotive sector. However, a high level of reinforcement was always a problem in filament making, until now.

Ultrafuse® PP GF30 contains 30% glass fibers that are specifically designed for 3D printing filaments making Ultrafuse® PP GF30 compatible with any conventional FFF printer.

PP has a lower moisture uptake than PA which makes Ultrafuse PP GF30 fully printable without need for drying. In combination with its high level of glass fiber reinforcement and its ex- cellent chemical resistance, Ultrafuse® PP GF30 is the preferred filament for exceptional harsh environments. Thanks to its UV resistance it is more suitable than any other PP-based filament for applications directly exposed to sunlight.
