Divide By Zero Technologies, India’s first homegrown 3D printer manufacturer to receive patents from India and the United States of America, has now brought in Polypropylene in their 3D printing material arsenal. Divide By Zero customers will not be able to 3D print polypropylene (PP) in the patented AEQON & AION Series of FDM 3D printers which offer 5X faster and high-performance 3D printing.

Polypropylene (PP) is a semi-crystalline material highly resistant to strong impact, abrasion, and chemicals. In addition to this, PP is considered a food-safe, dishwasher safe, biologically safe and therefor skin-friendly. In fact, many grades of PP are FDA approved.

Such a 3D printing material is highly desirable for many industries and so it is widely used in applications like FMCG packaging & labelling applications, food-safe containers, lab equipment, healthcare applications, stationery and more.

Speaking on this, CEO & Founder Swapnil Sansare said, “This light-weight high strength material will prove beneficial in the medical, food and packaging industry with incredible results needing mass customisations.”

Further to that, Swapnil explained the following benefits of going 3D printing with Polypropylene.

  1. “Polypropylene 3D printing material is highly resistant against strong impact and abrasion forces. This along with our 5X faster high-speed FFF technology adds huge benefits in designing complex, high-strength assembly fixtures.”
  2. “Owing to its high toughness and fatigue resistant property, 3D printed polypropylene parts find applications in the automotive industry as well. For example – 3D printing car bumpers with PP is a cost-efficient method that can withstand bumps & bruises without component breakage. With AEQON400 V3, you can 3D print such parts with cost savings up to 85% than any other traditional methods.”
  3. “3D printed polypropylene parts can withstand higher stress and higher loads owing to its larger tendency to resist deformation compared to PLA & ABS. Backed by our high-speed patented 3D printing technology, you can print high strength end-use parts saving millions.”
  4. “Almost all industrial & engineering-grade 3D printing materials are sensitive to the air moisture humidification process. Consequently, you need to invest huge cash for active air moisture removal from all your filaments. This adds a cash burden on your book of accounts. On the other hand, PP is not sensitive to moisture and needs no such auxiliary process to keep its material properties intact.”
  5. “Being completely skin-friendly with FDA approved, 3D printing with polypropylene can assist the medical industry in manufacturing on-demand, low-cost, customized 3D printed orthopedic parts. This would help healthcare establishments to deliver medical assistance to the poor at the lowest cost possible.”
  6. “PP is entirely environment-friendly. 3D printed polypropylene parts can be recycled multiple times over and over again as it is detergent washable.”

Not just that, hundreds of new businesses coming into the 3D printing ecosystem are feeling confident using DBZ’s patented technology products. Talking about new engineering-grade materials, Swapnil said, “Besides Polypropylene, we are now printing parts with high strength materials for all our industrial applications ranging from Carbon Fiber, Nylon, PETG, PC, PACF, PAGF, and many more.”

Divide By Zero Technologies is a product innovation company and that their technologies are widely being accepted across the world. Just a few weeks back, team Divide By Zero dispatched India’s first-ever high-speed FFF printer to Houston, United States of America.
