Not everyone knows the great variety of 3D printing materials. They are very strong and robust, at the same time giving you amazing design freedom. With traditional manufacturing methods, the objects are defined by the technology.
Additive Manufacturing turned this process around and allows you to create new solutions matching exactly the requirements of your production.
For example, our Jet Fusion material has obtained results that “certify that the material can resist exposure to a range of 700 °C to 800 °C depending on the dimensions and thickness of the part. The fact that this material has a Glow Wire rating of 700 °C at a minimum thickness means that it can be considered acceptable when application requirements specify temperatures below 700 °C”. Another heat-resistant plastic is Alumide, which can withstand up to 120°C, and Glass-Filled Nylon which has a melting point is 176 °C.
Another property of 3D printing materials, which is sometimes crucial, is water-resistance. We have tested our materials for water resistance and came to the conclusion that three of them, especially with Smoothing beautifier applied, are fairly resistant to water. You can read more about the tests here.
Therefore, we recommend you to choose pp fitting by 3D Printing.
