New 3D Printing Material Ultem 9085
Advanced Long-Term Heat and Flame Resistance
Materialise, Leuven, Belgium, launched a new heat-resistant material for 3D printing: Ultem 9085. With its advanced long-term heat and flame resistance, Ultem 9085 provides a new option in durable Fusion Deposition Modeling materials to industries such as automotive and aerospace manufacturing where parts need to withstand prolonged heat exposure.
A major challenge of engineering parts manufacturing is the ability to develop pieces that are able to withstand long-term exposure to elevated temperatures with low ignition risk. Now available in tan and black, Ultem 9085 features include:
- UL 94-V0 certified
- Glass transition temperature of 186°C
- High LOI (limiting oxygen index), making it exceptionally difficult to ignite
- Limited smoke production
- Low-toxicity combustion products
- Flexural strength of 115 mPa
As one of the strongest 3D printing materials Materalise offers, Ultem 9085 is ideal for applications in components that need UL 94-V0 certification, interior components and ductwork for aerospace, under-the-hood automotive parts, safety for critical components in machines and devices, and manufacturing tools (jigs, fixtures, tooling).
