Spanish petrochemicals group Repsol (Madrid; www.repsol.com) has launched two advanced polypropylene materials for additive manufacturing specially designed for applications with high mechanical performance.

The company said its “Isplen” P3D820FM is a reinforced PP with a high percentage of mineral filler and medium fluidity that offers high rigidity as well as very high dimensional stability and warping control. It contains UV stabilisation and excellent scratch resistance, said to make it ideal for outdoor use in applications such as prototyping, tools, toys, footwear, automotive components, jewellery and entertainment.

Repsol noted that the second material, Isplen P3D630FV, is a glass fibre-reinforced PP particularly useful for applications requiring impact resistance, high rigidity, and low deformation and contraction behaviour. It targets outdoor applications such as technical parts, functional prototypes or guides and accessories for the automotive sector, among others.
