PP GF30 (Polypropylene 30% glass fibre) is a composite filament, filled with glass fibre for chemically resistant, lightweight and dimensionally stable parts. It is amongst the most used filled materials in the automotive industry, characterised by a long service life and able to resist to all weather conditions.

- Parts exposed to aggressive and humid environments or in contact with chemicals.
- Rigid structural elements such as brackets, bars, shafts and frames.
- Automotive and aerospace industry.
Industrial-grade materials manufactured by BASF and Mitsubishi Chemical and designed to deliver outstanding results for BCN3D printers.
Due to its chemical composition, each thermoplastic polymer is characterised by a different resistance to the different classes of chemicals, including apparently harmless substances such as food and cleaning products.

Parts printed in PP GF30 withstand the harshest environments, keeping their shape and functionality
When printing structural parts, choose PP GF30 for greatest durability and weather resistance.
Resistance to aggressive environments, humidity and high pressure
PP GF30 is ideal to manufacture rigid and strong parts used in aggressive environments.
Product design end-use parts
The use of PPGF GF30 was employed for the manufacturing of the fender; one of the pieces most prone to breaking from shocks and frictions. The material, capable of withstanding such movements, is also beneficial because it is lighter than PAHT and the fender is the largest piece.
