VC - 8060 Simulate PP

Versatility, Dimensional Stability, Cost-effective Solution

8060 Simulate PP is a material used in vacuum casting processes to replicate the properties of polypropylene (PP). It is designed to closely mimic the characteristics of PP, such as its flexibility, impact resistance, and chemical resistance. This makes it an ideal choice for creating functional prototypes and low-volume production parts that require the properties of PP.

The material is commonly used in various industries, including automotive, consumer goods, medical, and industrial applications. It allows for the production of prototypes and components that accurately simulate the behavior and performance of PP parts, enabling testing, validation, and functional evaluation before mass production


  • Functional Prototypes:

    It is used to create prototypes of PP parts that accurately mimic the mechanical and physical properties of the final product. This allows for functional testing and validation before mass production.

  • Engineering Components:

    8060 Simulate PP is utilized in the manufacturing of various engineering components such as housings, enclosures, and brackets. These parts require the characteristics of PP, including good impact resistance, chemical resistance, and dimensional stability.

  • Consumer Goods:
