Braskem’s polypropylene (PP) filament is specifically engineered for optimal performance in Additive Manufacturing. Polypropylene’s mechanical properties, chemical resistance, low density, and ability to form living hinge features make it an ideal material for use in the Additive Manufacturing industry.

This processing guide intends to provide you with the information you need in order to get the most from your Braskem PP filament. This guide has you covered, from preparing the build plate to slicing conditions and part design considerations. Bed Adhesion Methods Much like with other filaments, proper bed adhesion and bed levelling are key when printing with PP. Below are two methods that will ensure your success with your PP filament by providing the optimal resistance to warpage.

The methods described below are suitable for most geometries. However, warpage prone geometries containing sharp corners, large dimensions, or thick cross-sections may have varying results. It is important to note that the success of any bed adhesion solution is heavily dependent on the levelling of the build plate and deposition of the first layer of filament. Before using any bed adhesion product, refer to your printer’s operating manual to ensure the build plate is precisely levelled. This will help guarantee proper deposition of the first layer against the bed. In addition to the methods described below, there are various products which may work as a bed adhesive solution however, the solutions in this guide are recommendations to provide the most consistent and convenient solutions
