Evaluation of Polypropylene Powder Grades in Consideration of the Laser Sintering Processability
The paper deals with the evaluation of polypropylene (PP) powder grades in consideration of the laser sintering processibility. It is reported on experimental investigations for comparison and ranking between the polymer grades analysed. Although strong differences in the basic materials behavior exist, the general applicability of PP powder grades for laser sintering could be stated. Proposals were made to adapt PP to the laser sintering process for optimal processability and high property level.
