About the Material
Need to 3D print a medical device or automotive component that will interact with fluid? Polypropylene could be your best choice. This material is perfect for applications that require high-use cycles and low mositure absorbtion. Polypropylene is great for applications where the material will continually be cycled in and out of stress due to its fatigue resistance, and semi-flexible characteristics. Polypropylene is a lightweight and can be used to reduce the overall weight of the printed component.

Polypropylene is an ideal material for 3D printing due to its strength, durability, and affordability. It is a lightweight yet strong material, making it well-suited for a wide range of 3D printing applications. It is also highly resistant to chemicals and moisture, making it an ideal choice for outdoor and industrial applications. Polypropylene is also a cost-effective material, making it a good choice for budget-conscious projects. Additionally, it is easy to post-process and can be finished in a wide variety of ways, making it an ideal material for 3D printing projects that require high accuracy and surface finish.
