Ideal composite material for chemically resistant, lightweight and dimensionally stable parts
Note: To use PP GF30 filament you will have to install the hotend X. Printing PAHT CF15 and PP GF30 with a standard nozzle will seriously damage the hotend.
Discober the hotend X design: Hotend X
PP GF30 (Polypropylene 30% glass fibre) is a composite filament, filled with glass fibre for chemically resistant, lightweight and dimensionally stable parts. It is amongst the most used filled materials in the automotive industry, characterised by a long service life and able to resist to all weather conditions.
You can purchase PP GF30 from our store: BCN3D PP GF30

Build plate adhesion: Magigoo PRO PPGF
Magigoo PP-GF is designed to work exclusively with glass re-inforced polypropylene(GFPP) filaments. This adhesive makes sure prints stick firmly when the print-bed is hot and that the part is easy to remove once it cools.
It is best to apply Magigoo when the printing bed is cool.
Plastics absorb moisture from the air. For long periods of time without printing, it is
recommended to keep the PP GF30 spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant
to keep them dry.
PP GF30 emits low levels of gasses and particles when printed. We recommend printing it in a well-ventilated area to ensure a healthy environment.
Only compatible with BCN3D Epsilon when paired with the Hotend X.
