As a modern Maker in our futuristic world, it’s almost second nature to push the limits of desktop fabrication as we experiment with all of the different polymers and materials that are available to us. From standard PLA and ABS polymers, all the way through to 3D Filaments infused with carbon fibre and nylon, there are so many great materials to try out for a wide range of different purposes, such as polypropylene – the ever-prevalent plastic that was first polymerised in 1951.

This is why our spools of CCTREE 1.75mm Yellow Polypropylene Filament are an excellent choice for anyone who is eager to try their hand at 3D Printing in more advanced, slightly more difficult 3D plastics. It is a polymer with very impressive durability characteristics, as it combines the traits of high flexibility and fatigue resistance, with an impressive “memory” that allows it to get back to its original shape and form without resulting in Yellow stress marks or noticeable wear and tear.

It’s important to note, however, that we recommend Polypropylene Filament from CCTREE for advanced Makers only, as it may require a lot of trial and error before finding the perfect printing specifications. Fortunately though, we’ve prepared a small list of recommended settings below, which you can use as a start to get your own ideal settings. But be prepared to experiment, as the temperatures and other spec’s may vary depending on whether you have an enclosure, use rafts or brims, as well as other specifics according to your printer setup. This is why the suggested print settings have reasonably large spreads between the minimum and maximum ratings, as each subtle difference between 3D Printers and even the surrounding ambient environments can substantially impact printing results.

Typical Applications for the CCTREE 1.75mm Yellow Polypropylene Filament:

This Polypropylene Filament from CCTREE is the best polymer for producing prints that need to last through repeated use, which is why it’s so popular for parts like child-safe bottle caps and one-piece hinges. It is capable of maintaining it’s original shape, and is even resistant to the Yellow stress marks that typically become prevalent after repeatedly bending other plastics. This means that Polypropylene is the ideal material for parts that need to bend, stretch or flex often, as it will outlast almost every other polymer aside from intense plastics like nylon and carbon fibre.

CCTREE Polypropylene Filament - 1.75mm Yellow

CCTREE is somewhat of a newcomer compared to brands like eSUN and Wanhao, but have certainly made big waves with their cost-effective PLA, ABS and Exotic 3D Printer Filaments.

They are a subsidiary of Shenzhen Prime Technology Company, and have chosen to partner with us as their South African suppliers, affording us the opportunity to supply South Africa with quality 3D filament at an even lower price than they offer on their official website.

Aside from the cost-efficiency of their 3D Printer Filaments, what we like most about CCTREE is that they share a similar business approach to our own here at DIYElectronics, with the belief that “When you buy from us, the sale is not complete when we ship your order, it is complete when you are totally satisfied.”
