Flame retardant production-grade rapid prototyping material
28 May 2009
Materialise is now offering the opportunity to have parts built in a new, highly functional, lightweight and flame retardant thermoplastic - the ULTEMTM 9085 Fused Deposition Modelling material. The ULTEMTM 9085 material's strength-to-weight ratio, its FST (flame, smoke and toxicity) and UL 94-V0 ratings set it apart from any other thermoplastic available on additive manufacturing machines. These qualities make it a perfect solution for a wide range of prototyping and end use applications including electrical components, microwave parts, pump and valve parts and in marine, aerospace and automotive manufacturing.
"As well as providing perfect solutions for specific high-end prototyping requirements, the ULTEMTM 9085 is a huge leap forward for the direct additive manufacturing of production grade components. The addition of the ULTEMTM 9085 material to our portfolio will enable us to directly produce small production runs in a highly functional and flame retardant material, while slashing the cost and lead-times of traditional tooling techniques." - Bart Van der Schueren, Director of Materialise Industrial Services
