Addigy® G6001 GF

Engineering-grade PP optimized for FGF 3D printing 

First PP optimized for 3D printing

Popular for its thermal, mechanical and chemical performance, polypropylene (PP) is the second most used polymer worldwide in traditional manufacturing. Despite broad adoption of 3D printing, no PP has been optimized for additive manufacturing. Covestro has now filled the gap with Addigy® G6001 GF.

For low volume or decentralized production, direct printing using additive manufacturing can decrease cost since tools are no longer needed. Additive manufacturing also allows for more design freedom and customized parts. Automotive, industrial or infrastructure manufacturers looking to utilize PP in their additive manufacturing processes had difficulties finding a material with the typical thermal, mechanical and chemical performance, while also printing smoothly.

Covestro's new Addigy® G6001 GF now offers a PP that has been optimized for fused granulate fabrication 3D printing. While unleashing the full potential of the intrinsic material behavior, so critical for building structural parts, this engineering grade thermoplastic prints smoothly and fast.

Covestro material scientists developed Addigy® G6001 GF by combining the same base as material used in high volume production with expertise on simulation tools (CAE), Design for Additive and material printing, then worked with equipment partners to optimize the material for FGF printing. The material’s low carbon footprint, due to the reduced energy consumption, and its low LCA, inherent to the PP’s chemistry, makes it a sustainable solution.
