Overview of Polypropylene

The most commonly used plastic in consumer goods, polypropylene (PP) is incredibly lightweight and is lauded for its chemical and impact resistance. PP is also resistant to bacteria and fungi growth in the short term.

With this balance of properties, PP is suitable for applications in a range of industries – including food packaging, disposable syringes, and automotive components.

Polypropylene is also translucent, widening its potential applications for uses requiring light or liquid monitoring, but the material can be dyed accordingly.

Intended for use in fused deposition modelling, polypropylene printing is enabled through our Roboze Argo 500 FDM capabilities.

With this state-of-the-art FDM printing technology, we can produce components with polypropylene in as little as 24 hours.
