Description

The revolutionary new polypropylene filament from Recreus was developed in collaboration with Repsol. This great synergy has enabled Repsol Chemical's contribution and vast experience in the manufacture of polyolefins to bring high-quality polypropylene to the market. Without a doubt, a collaboration that has resulted in an exceptional polypropylene (PP) for 3D printing that has fantastic applicability in many areas.

As a novelty, the filament is supplied with a primer that is applied to the surface of the printer before printing. We achieve the maximum adhesion of the PP at only 40 ° C and thus an optimal result for our end piece!

The Recreus PP3D polypropylene filament has exceptional fatigue resistance, high toughness and a low coefficient of friction. It is a material of choice for prototyping and end-use parts. The matte finish is impressive, similar to injection moulding, which eliminates the appreciation of union between layers. As a result, you get a piece of very high quality and exceptional finish.

Properties

  • Resistant to chemicals
  • Non-toxic
  • Good adhesion between the printing layers
  • Easy to print
  • Less warping
  • Smooth finish
  • Autoclavable
  • Suitable for food contact
  • Durable and strong

Applications

  • Due to its chemical resistance, it is ideal for 3D printing of bottles and containers as functional prototypes that can contain a liquid product
  • Parts that require low friction and heat resistance
  • High electrical resistance for good electrical insulation
  • Industrial tools and parts
  • Parts that must be resistant to salts, acids, solvents, greases and oils
  • Mechanical components
  • Parts that need to be sealed

Filament PP3D + primer

The polypropylene filament spool is accompanied by a primer container that must be applied to the surface of the printer before each print in order to achieve the best result. The success of printing your parts is based on the perfect combination and application of this primer together with the filament. It is very important that you carefully read the instructions below on how to use the primer before you start printing.

Instructions for use:

Follow the next steps:

  1. Open the primer container and apply a layer to the print bed or surface.
  2. Leave on for 5 minutes to allow the primer to dry.
  3. Set the bed temperature to 40 ° C. Do not use a higher temperature as the part could deform.
  4. Start printing the Recreus PP3D filament.
  5. When the piece is finished, heat the bed to 85 ° C to remove it.

IMPORTANT!

The same primer layer can be used for 1 or 2 additional prints. To do this, reheat the bed to 40 ° C each time before printing the new piece and, after the process is complete, raise the temperature of the bed to 85 ° C to remove it.

Recommended printing parameters:

Printing temperature: 230 ºC
Print speed: 40 mm / s
Heating bed temperature: 40 ° C after applying the "primer"
Optimal layer height: 0.2 mm
Minimum nozzle diameter: 0.4 - 0.6 mm
Retraction for Direct Drive: 3.2 mm
Retraction for Bowden: 6 mm
Retraction speed for Direct Drive: 40 mm / s
Retraction speed for Bowden: 25 mm / s

Customer Reviews

The most popular technology used for 3D printing is FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling). A heated nozzle (hot-end) melts the plastic wire, layering the melted parts.
