HyperLite PP

OVERVIEW

HyperLite PP HGB1 is made using a specialty formulated polypropylene created specifically for 3D printing. The 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.

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

TYPICAL 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.

KEY FEATURES
  • 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

SPECIFICATIONS

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

PRINT SETTINGS

  • Extruder: 210-240°C
  • Bed Temp: 60-90°C
  • Bed Prep: 3Dlac
  • 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
