PolyP 3D Printer filament (Polypropylene) is a new material to the filament market. Ooznest Materials PolyP filament has been designed for uses where optical clarity, chemical resistance, or flexibility is required. Polypropylene is a well used plastic around the globe, it is commonly used in packaging and storage applications.
WHAT MAKES POLYP DIFFERENT?
Ooznest Materials Polypropylene is perfect to use in live applications, like hinges and straps. It has good inter layer adhesion and a massive 600% elongation at break (PLA is 20%). PolyP has great fatigue resistance, it can be used on applications where the part is regularly bent. Making the part from PolyP will insure that it lasts a lifetime.
The base material of PolyP is also food safe, in addition it is water and chemical resistance. These two combined makes it an ideal candidate to use for containers. The high optical performance means PolyP will transfer light through the object – again ideal for containers.
PolyP is a semi-crystalline material, therefore a printed part can warp heavily when it cools. It is recommended to print on top of a Polypropylene sheet or tape. A higher temperature first layer can also reduce the amount the part warps.
WHY CHOOSE OOZNEST MATERIALS?
At Ooznest we live, breath and dream 3D Printing. We use 3D Printers on a daily basis whether it is manufacturing parts for our machines, or just having fun.
Ooznest Materials was launched out of a necessity to bring the widest range of premium materials to every maker at affordable prices. Our filaments are manufactured in Europe to the highest standards, with only premium, not contaminated raw materials.
All our Ooznest Materials 3D Printer Filaments are manufactured to a 0.05mm diameter tolerance. Our filaments arrive vacuumed packed, inside a shrink wrapped box, with an extra special secret treat :). This insures your 3D Printer filament arrives in a pristine condition ready for printing.
Normally filament is wound onto plastic spools. We recognised that winding 3D Printer filament onto a plastic spool is completely unnecessary. All our Ooznest Material filaments are wound onto a 100% recyclable cardboard spool. Our cardboard spools are extremely rigid, they will not twist, deform, or tear from repeated use.
Not sure if our filament is right for you? Don't worry you can just buy an Ooznest Materials sample and give it a try, we guarantee you won't be disappointed with Ooznest Materials.
We have built a reputation for outstanding customer service, and we plan to keep that with Ooznest Materials. A member of our expert team is available by email or phone, for printing advice, or just a general chit chat. We have a no hassle return or exchange process, if you are happy, we are happy.
