Polypropylene (PP) is the most common Engineering material. It’s a light material with great inherent chemical resistance and no water absorption. However, it’s not as commonly used in 3D applications due to warping and challenging adhesion properties resulting many “PP-Like” filaments which don’t have same mechanical properties nor performance as REAL PP.
Plastics-App’s Perform √ FP is a REAL PP filament with improved impact, enhanced adhesion and controlled shrinkage.
preparation of test specimens with relevance to the final application. Also serves a role in the processabilty evaluation and defining processing parameters of the final product.
Injection molding of samples from elastomers to high temperature materials into a temperature regulated mold. Filament production, from hundreds of grams to hundreds of kgs and printing samples for evaluation of print quality, parameters definition, and material properties. Blown film of a lab-scale bubble, to evaluate film quality and performance
Twin screw extrusion of multiple samples for evaluation of composition (loading level %), processing parameters (Temp, RPM, Throughput), add-on sequence
(Main, Side, Liquid Inj) etc….
Capable of feeding pellets, powders, liquids, recycled materials and much more… Controlling the residance time, degree of mixing, and other process parameters Flexible down stream of water or air cooling for water sensitive materials
