ULTEM 9085 (for Fused Deposition Modeling) is a strong, high-performance thermoplastic. Key certifications include FAR 25 and OSU 65/65, EN45545 R6-HL3 rating, and UN ECE Regulation 118 (Fire Protection of Buses). See the data sheet. Learn more about flame retardent materials in this guide.
  • What production technologies do you offer?
    Our network of certified partners enables us to provide our makers with a variety of highest quality solutions. We offer 15+ manufacturing technologies. Some of the most popular include: Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is used for manufacturing complex and dimensionally stable metal parts. The process uses an inert gas atmosphere and a laser, whose thermal energy is used to melt metal powder which is stored in a powder bed. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a technology similar to Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) but uses polymers instead of metals. It is equally capable of creating highly accurate parts. Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) is a powder bed technology that builds up the manufactured parts layer-by-layer. It is a very accurate manufacturing technology with short building times as well as a high output. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) produces parts out of thermoplastics with a heated and moveable nozzle. The technology is cost-efficient, scalable, and has short end-to-end lead times. CNC machining is a computer-controlled manufacturing method where programmed software controls complex machinery based on pre-determined movements.
