The new and disruptive Recreus PP·3D polypropylene (PP) filament has been developed jointly with the multinational Repsol. This partnership led to the launch a high-quality polypropylene thanks to Repsol’s extensive experience in the manufacture of polyolefins.
The filament is accompanied by a primer to apply to the surface of the printer before printing. This results in the maximum adhesion of the PP at just 40°C (on a glass bed; adhesion will be less on other surfaces) and, therefore, an optimal result without any warping or deformation!
PP·3D has exceptional resistance to fatigue, high levels of toughness, a low friction coefficient and is non-toxic. Its matte finish is impressive, similar to injection, which makes the seams between layers disappear. The result is a premium quality piece with an exceptional finish.
PP·3D is a material with a fantastic applicability in many industries. Suitable for food contact and autoclavable (natural colour only). It’s the perfect material for creating:
– Bottles and containers as functional or end-use prototypes that require watertightness to contain a liquid product.
– Mechanical components, tools and industrial parts with high electrical resistance.
– Parts that must be resistant to salts, acids, solvents, fats and oils.
– Parts that require low friction and heat resistance.
