PP Filament

Very functional with a wide range of applications.

PP stands for polypropylene, which is virtually unbreakable. A thermoplastic 3D printing filament that is durable, break-resistant, fatigue-resistant and semi-flexible. A property of PP filament is that the parts warp quickly after cooling due to the molecular structure of the material. This makes it challenging to print PP models properly. However, if done correctly, the models have great potential with a smooth, visually appealing finish.


PP filament is reasonably stiff, lightweight and has high temperature resistance. PP models are water-resistant and resistant to fatigue from repeated use. It is a semi-crystalline plastic, which differs from the more common amorphous plastics ABS and PLA. This means that PP does not gradually soften as the temperature rises, but retains its shape until enough heat has been absorbed and it then quickly liquefies.

The advantages of PP filament

  • Excellent durability and toughness
  • Chemical resistance
  • Food safe
  • Lightweight
