HyperLite™ PP [Polypropylene] 3D Printing Filament

HyperLite™ PP HGB1 is made using a specialty formulated polypropylene that we created specifically for 3D printing. Our formulation includes a specialty additive which enables ultra low density (0.75g/cc) along with lower shrink and warp compared to competitors’ PP-based 3D filaments. HyperLite™ Polypropylene is a game changer for the industrial 3D printing of PP-based materials for engineering-grade applications.

The reels contain 500g of filament, but based on the very low density of HyperLite™, this is the same amount of filament that would typically be found on a 750g reel of ABS. This allows you to print light-weight parts for medical, drones, watercraft, automotive, or any application which would benefit from a light weight, flexible, chemically resistant material.

Benefits of HyperLite™ HGB1 Polypropylene Include:

  • Excellent resistance against a huge variety of chemicals
  • Ultra low density and weight, only 0.75g/cc
  • High impact and elongation, retaining the flexibility of Polypropylene
  • Easier to print than most flexible 3D printing materials, suitable for use with almost any 3D printer
  • Does not absorb moisture, no drying needed!
  • Superior dimensional stability thanks to its very low shrinkage, warping, and zero moisture uptake

Chemical Resistance of HyperLite™ HGB1 Polypropylene

Since material properties can vary depending on print environment and 3D model geometry and/or surface area, it is always required to do your own testing, but Polypropylene is famous for its chemical resistances to a huge range of environments including:

  • Acids: Acetic, Boric, Hydrochloric, Phosphoric, Stearic, Sulfuric, Uric
  • Bases: Hydrocides of Ammonium, Barium, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium
  • Solvents: Acetone, Ethanol, MEK, Phenol (10%), Water

Filament Specifications:

1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter

Recommended Print Settings:

  • Extruder: 210-240°C
  • Bed Temp: 60-90°C
  • Bed Prep: Magigoo Bed Prep or 3DXTECH Polyimide Tape gives us the best results
  • Heated Chamber: Not required
  • Supports: AquaTek™ Water Soluble X1 USM Universal Support Material is one of the few materials capable of properly forming a strong, temporary bond for support printing. Polypropylene is infamous for being difficult to support, and X1 USM is ideal for the job
  • Drying Instructions: Not needed
