Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
ULTEM™ 9085 resin is a flame-retardant high-performance thermoplastic for digital manufacturing and rapid prototyping. It is ideal for the transportation industry due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and its FST (flame, smoke and toxicity) rating. Combined with a Fortus® 3D Printer, ULTEM 9085 resin allows design and manufacturing engineers to produce fully functional parts that are ideal for advanced functional prototypes or end use without the cost or lead time of traditional tooling.
Certified ULTEM 9085 meets more stringent test criteria and retains material traceability required by the aerospace industry. Certificates of Analysis for both raw material and filament are supplied, documenting test results and identification to match filament manufacturing lot number to raw material lot number. This allows traceability from printed part back to raw material. A Certificate of Conformance certifies that the material is manufactured per specification.
Advanced FDM Technology FDM (fused deposition modeling)technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology. These parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
