Philadelphia-based Braskem recently announced the launch and availability of its PP filament spools for 3D printing for online purchase through international thermoplastics distributor M. Holland, Northbrook, Illinois, who operates the eStore www.mholland3d.com has newly introduced. The market launch includes two PP filament qualities for the production of melt filaments (FFF / FDM), which have been developed for both industrial and personal 3D printing.
Braskem’s PP 3D printing filament is ideal for additive manufacturing due to its recyclability, impact resistance, chemical resistance and dimensional stability. It has permanent hinge capabilities and a lower density than other plastics. Properties that make PP an attractive material for a wide variety of 3D printing applications.
Braskem filaments are specifically designed for end users, making them a great choice for rapid prototyping, custom product design, lightweight construction, geometry optimization and spare part design. Braskem filaments are available in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameters to suit a wide variety of printer applications.
As previously reported, Braskem’s continued commitment to innovation and the introduction of new additive manufacturing solutions was last year through investing in a new dedicated additive manufacturing laboratory as part of the expansion of its Innovation and Technology Center (I&T) in Pittsburgh Proven, Pennsylvania.
