A 3D printed airplane vent is built from ULTEM 9085 thermoplastic.

ULTEM 9085

3D print high-performance parts in tan or black

A reputation for reliability. This famously overachieving thermoplastic has well-rounded thermal, mechanical and chemical properties that make it superior in most categories.

ULTEM 9085 is an FDM thermoplastic ideal for aerospace, automotive and military applications because of its FST rating, high strength-to-weight ratio and existing certifications. It empowers design and manufacturing engineers to 3D print advanced functional prototypes and end-use parts.

3D Printing With ULTEM 9085

On the Fortus 400mcFortus 450mc and Fortus 900mc 3D Production Systems, ULTEM 9085 offers a well-vetted high-performance thermoplastic. Advanced applications include functional testing, manufacturing tooling and direct digital manufacturing of end-use parts — including aircraft interior components and ductwork.

This high-performance FDM thermoplastic expands the use of additive manufacturing into applications that demand thermal and chemical resistance. ULTEM 9085 works with breakaway support material and is available in tan and black.
