Production-Grade Thermoplastic, ULTEM 1010 is a very high strength, chemical resistant FDM material, making it ideal for aerospace, automotive, medical and military applications.

ULTEM 1010 resin offers the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic. It is the only FDM material with an NSF 51 food-contact certification, and it’s biocompatible with an ISO 10993/USP Class VI certification, this unique material’s pre-existing certifications make it an excellent choice for the commercial transportation industry, especially: Aerospace, medical, marine and ground vehicles.

ULTEM 1010 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 such as: Ducts, augers, medical device enclosures and airplane interior components.

Due to the rigid break-away support structures, ULTEM 1010 is not suitable for complex assemblies.

Available in a Natural Tan, ULTEM 1010 is considerably more expensive in its raw form, which commands a higher price than most FDM based materials.

CIDEAS is ITAR registered, CAGE code upon request.
