ULTEM* 9085

ULTEM* 9085 is a flame retardant high performance thermoplastic for direct 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. This unique material’s preexisting certifications make it an excellent choice for the commercial transportation industry – especially aerospace, marine and ground vehicles. Combined with a Fortus® 3D Production System, ULTEM 9085 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.

The information presented are typical values intended for reference and comparison purposes only. They should not be used for design specifications or quality control purposes. End-use material performance can be impacted (+/-) by, but not limited to, part design, end-use conditions, test conditions, color etc. Actual values will vary with build conditions. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.

1 Build orientation is on side long edge.
2 Literature value unless otherwise noted.
3 Due to amorphous nature, material does not display a melting point.
4 All Electrical Property values were generated from the average of test plaques built with default part density (sparse). Test plaques were 4.0 x 4.0 x 0.1 inches (102 x 102 x 2.5 mm) and were built both in the flat and vertical orientation.
5 Test results based on Stress Crack Resistance (24-hour immersion @ 23°C and @ 100°C).
