Sinterit New material: Polypropylene (PP)

Introducing the latest member of Sinterit’s growing SLS material portfolio, the polypropylene powder.

With its good chemical resistance, low density and low water absorption, it is the only material available for compact SLS 3D printing that is both air and watertight without the need for a special sealer. (TPE, for instance, can be made watertight with a special coating.)

The PP Powder is the first material for compact SLS that is watertight.

Konrad Glowacki, Co-Founder of Sinterit and Chief Business Development Officer states; “Our PP is suitable for functional prototyping of the ducting in the air intake, fan shrouds and electronic housings.”

PP Polypropylene

 

PP features:

  • Chemical resistance
  • Low density enabling buoyancy
  • No water absorption by polymer
  • Recyclability
  • Suitable for pneumatics
  • Weldability with other PP parts

The PP powder for Sinterit’s Lisa and Lisa PRO 3D Printers is now available in a 6kg format.
