MATERIAL FOR 3D PRINTED FLIGHT PARTS
High-performance thermoplastics that are strong, durable, and can be tailored to application requirements.
- Replace metal with lighter-weight materials
- Reduce fuel costs with topology optimization
Fly with less weight, reduce complexity, or simplify production — if you can conceive it, our solutions help make it a reality. Enjoy the freedom to produce complex geometries not possible with other manufacturing processes. Using certified materials also allows you to be secure that your produced designs are flightworthy and able to handle the rigors of real-world application.
FDM PEI thermoplastic.
Made for demanding applications.
ULTEM™ 9085 resin is a flame-retardant, high-performance thermoplastic. It features a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent heat resistance and high impact strength. It also possesses favorable flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) characteristics.
Certified for high performance.
ULTEM™ 9085 resin CG meets stringent test criteria and retains traceability required by the aerospace industry. Certificates of Analysis document test results and identification for both raw material and filament to match filament lot numbers to raw material lot numbers. This allows traceability from printed part back to raw material.
Functional prototypes for high-demand applications
Jigs, Fixtures, End-of-arm tools, Composite molds
Low-volume production and highly-customized parts
High-Strength, Heat Resistant FDM Thermoplastic
ULTEM™ 1010 resin is one of the strongest FDM thermoplastics. Possessing high heat resistance and thermal stability, it’s able to withstand autoclave operations associated with sterilization and composite fabrication tooling.
