PPL is our special purpose Polypropylene, being specifically developed for having a very low density. This makes it perfect for objects where weight is a key factor. The surface has a matte finish and is resistant to absorbing moisture. Together with the chemical resistance of PP, PPL has unique qualities that aren’t found in any other material which makes it an ideal choice for special projects. Although PPL features less warping than regular PP, it is still prone to heat warping.


  • Very Low density
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Good adherence on PP plate
  • Floats

Additional information

When PPL prints too “grainy”, try purging the nozzle. Using a Gear pump or using high shear can affect the
density of the material. Although drying is not necessarily required, it is advised to dry slightly.


Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
