 POLYPROPYLENE is our easy to print general purpose low-density Polypropylene. PP has been developed for optical clarity while maintaining mechanical performance and a superb layer adhesion. Polypropylenes high stretch ability, decent flexibility and chemical/fatigue resistance makes it suitable for a variety of household articles and containers. PP can also be used for engineering articles such as living-hinges and snap-fit fastener materials. Lastly PP can be used to print dishwasher & microwave safe objects. PP is a cost-effective all round filament suitable for a broad variety of needs.

PP features:

  • High chemical & Fatique resistance
  • High elongation before break
  • Superb layer adhesion
  • Suitable for food contact articles
  • Dishwasher & Microwave safe

PP is available from stock in its natural transparent color.
For other non stock colours please ask our team.


PP is available in nearly any type of  packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.

Additional info:

PP does not adhere to any print sticker well enough to counteract warp on large objects, therefore we recommend a Polypropylene sheet (inexpensive) so that no heated bed is required. Adherence improves when the first layer temperature is higher.

Printing with a raft improves bottom layer removability and evens out unconformities in the PP sheet.

PP can be used on most common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.


Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
