• Black - 1.75mm 3DXTech FibreX™ PP+GF30 Polypropylene - 0.5 kg

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

Recommended Print Settings:

  • Extruder: 240-270°C
  • Bed Temp: 80-110°C
  • Nozzle: We highly recommend a hardened steel nozzle with a minimum diameter of 0.4mm for abrasive materials such as this
  • Other: Ideal layer height is 60% of nozzle diameter. We do not recommend printing layers smaller than 0.2mm with abrasive filaments
  • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep gives us the best results
  • Heated Chamber: Not required
  • Supports: AquaTek™ Water Soluble X1 USM Universal Support Material is one of the few materials capable of properly forming a strong, temporary bond for support. Polypropylene is infamous for being difficult to support, and X1 USM is ideal for the job
  • Drying Instructions: 4+ Hours at 65°C
