ULTEM (Flame-Retardant High-Performance Thermoplastic) FDM

ULTEM (Fused Deposition Modeling), often referred to as ULTEM 9085 and ULTEM 1010, represents a family of high-performance thermoplastic materials in the realm of 3D printing. These advanced materials are renowned for their exceptional mechanical properties, heat resistance, and chemical resistance, making them a top choice for a wide range of industrial applications.

ULTEM 9085, a popular grade within the ULTEM family, is well-regarded for its outstanding strength-to-weight ratio and flame-retardant properties. This makes it ideal for applications demanding structural integrity and flame resistance, such as aerospace components and automotive parts. On the other hand, ULTEM 1010, another prominent member of the family, boasts even higher heat resistance, making it suitable for applications involving extreme temperatures, like under-the-hood automotive components and electrical insulators.

Both ULTEM 9085 and ULTEM 1010 offer manufacturers the ability to create durable, lightweight, and high-performance parts through Fused Deposition Modeling, making them essential materials in industries where reliability and resilience are paramount.
