3D printing with MJF Polypropylene
3D printing with MJF Polypropylene is becoming a popular replacement to injection molding technology. Read more about it below.
You can order your 3D printed parts in polypropylene, a common material for producing automotive projects, aerospace parts, and products with similar applications. It is great for manufacturing tubes and other parts for under-the-hood applications.
|General Information||PP is an excellent material for projects that require high chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and long term durability. Items like fluid tubes, chemical containers, and other parts of engines and exteriors or interiors of vehicles.|

MJF Nylon Glass filled PA 12
We offer glass-filled printing with our PA 12 material. You can select the glass-filled material when uploading your files in our instant quote page. With essentially the same properties as the regular PA 12 material, glass-filled parts are more durable and sturdy. They are also more thermal resistant. We suggest choosing glass-filled nylon if your parts require increased strength properties.
