Braskem, the largest polyolefins producer in the Americas and leading producer of biopolymers in the world, announced its carbon fiber reinforced polypropylene (PP) filament ("CF-PP") ("FL900PP-CF") for 3D printing and additive manufacturing is now available in the Ultimaker Marketplace.
"We are pleased to welcome Braskem to the Ultimaker Material Alliance! The addition of Braskem's carbon fiber reinforced PP filament print profile in the Ultimaker Marketplace brings an engineering grade composite (100% recycled carbon fiber is used) with a truly compelling slate of product attributes that is also very easy to print. By having Braskem's FL900PP-CF on our marketplace platform we unlock applications such as functional prototypes, tooling and end-use parts that require heightened dimensional stability under operating conditions, while maintaining the inherent chemical resistance, low density, toughness and watertight ability of PP. Braskem's carbon fiber reinforced PP filament is a unique and a genuinely valuable addition to our impressive material partner program," says Andrea Gasperini, Partner & Ecosystem Development Manager at Ultimaker.
