Production-Grade Thermoplastic, ULTEM 9085 has a high strength-to-weight ratio with an FST rating, making it ideal for aerospace, automotive, medical and military applications.

ULTEM* 9085 is a flame retardant high-temp/performance thermoplastic for additive manufacturing and 3D printing. It is ideal for the transportation industry due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and its FST (flame, smoke, and toxicity) rating.

Very difficult to injection mold, this unique material’s pre-existing certifications make it an excellent choice for the commercial transportation industry, especially: Aerospace, marine and ground vehicles.

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 such as: Ducts, augers and airplane interior components.

Due to the rigid break-away support structures, Ultem 9085 is not suitable for complex assemblies.

Available in a Natural Tan (CIDEAS standard) and Black, ULTEM 9085 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.
