Quickparts has announced the availability of ULTEM, a high-performance engineering thermoplastic material, for rapid prototyping.
According to the company, ULTEM is a strong, high temperature, chemically resistant thermoplastic that can be used across many industries for many digital manufacturing projects, from functional prototypes to jigs and fixtures to low-volume production runs using 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, according to the company.
The material also has a high strength to weight ratio, V-0 rating for flame, smoke and toxicity, and is durable enough to handle some flexing.
