WHAT: Magigoo PP-GF is designed to work exclusively with glass re-insforced polypropylene(GFPP) filaments.This adhesive makes sure prints stick firmly when the print-bed is hot and that the part is easy to remove once it cools.
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic semi-crystalline polymer exhibiting properties of good strength, impact resistance and ductility making it useful as an engineering material. PP however is a soft material and like most plastics it can be strengthened by the introduction of fibres to make a polymer composite material. These materials are usually stiffer and stronger than the parent polymer and can result in a material with a very high strength to weight ratio. Compared to most virgin PP filaments the GF30PP warps to a higher extent. This type of material requires a completely new adhesive formulation to play to its distinctive characters. .
Magigoo PP-GF has been designed and tested to work with 30% glass fiber filled Polypropylene
