3DXTECH™ FiberX™ PP + GF30
About The Materials
FibreX™ PP+GF30 is made using a specialty formulated 30% glass fiber reinforced polypropylene copolymer that we created specifically for 3D printing. Our PP+GF30 is ideal when you need improved strength, stiffness, impact, dimensional stability, chemical resistance and high thermal properties.
FibreX™ PP+GF30 [Polypropylene] 3D Printing Filament
FibreX™ PP+GF30 is made using a specialty formulated 30% glass fiber reinforced polypropylene copolymer which we created specifically for 3D printing. Our formulation offers improved thermal properties and lower shrinkage & warp compared to competitive PP-based compounds.
Reinforcing this trusted engineering polymer with glass fiber really made it a game changer for industrial applications. 3D printed PP+GF30 parts can be found in a wide array of real-world functional end uses or prototypes with automotive, tooling fixtures and jigs, appliances, and sporting goods.
Benefits of PP+GF Include:
Excellent resistance against a huge variety of chemicals
Low density and weight
Low shrinkage and warping
Typically does not absorb moisture, no drying required!
High strength, stiffness, and impact resistance
Chemical Resistance of PP+GF:
Since properties can change depending on print environment and 3D model geometry and/or surface area, it is always required to do your own testing, but Polypropylene is famous for its chemical resistances to a huge range of environments including:
Acids: Acetic, Boric, Hydrochloric, Phosphoric, Stearic, Sulfuric, Uric
Bases: Hydrocides of Ammonium, Barium, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium
Solvents: Acetone, Ethanol, MEK, Phenol (10%), Water
