Commitment is Reinforced by Offering New ULTEM Material for Rapid Prototyping
Mon, 07/06/2009 - 11:31am
ULTEM, a high-performance engineering thermoplastic material is now available for rapid prototyping. ULTEM is a strong, high temperature, chemically resistant thermoplastic that can be used across many industries for nearly any digital manufacturing project, from functional prototypes, to jigs and fixtures, to low volume production runs utilizing the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) process. ULTEM 9085 is certified for use on commercial aircrafts and has proven to be successful for electric/ electrical components, microwave applications, pump and valve parts, and marine and automotive manufacturers. In addition to its outstanding mechanical properties, the material also has a high strength to weight ratio, V-Ø rating for flame, smoke and toxicity, and is durable enough to handle some flexing.
