United Launch Alliance is using 3D printing to develop enhanced, low-cost production tooling and reduce production costs for their Atlas V and Dellta IV rockets’ flight hardware. This initiative has introduced 3D printing into their existing rocket design for the Environmental Control System (ECS) duct, slashing production cost and reducing the ECS assembly from over 140 to just 16 production parts.

ULTEM™ 9085 Resin

High-performance FDM PEI thermoplastic.
ULTEM™ 9085 filament is a high-performance thermoplastic with excellent physical and mechanical properties for high-demand and specialty applications using FDM technology. It is among the strongest of Stratasys FDM materials and its high-strength-to-weight ratio makes it well suited for high-strength/low-weight applications. Additionally, ULTEM™ 9085 filament possesses high impact resistance and very good chemical tolerance, and meets multiple transportation industry standards for flame, smoke, and toxicity requirements.

ULTEM™ 9085 filament certified grade has the same characteristics but also comes with traceability documentation and meets more extensive and stringent test criteria. A Certificate of Analysis enables users to track the filament back to the raw pellet stock. A Certificate of Conformance identifies compliance with approved Stratasys and industry standards. This makes ULTEM™ 9085 filament certified grade highly suitable for industries that require a higher level of material traceability.

Besides the standard colors of Natural and Black, additional colors of ULTEM™ 9085 filament are available from the Stratasys Validated Material portfolio*. Some of these colors match specialized industry and original equipment manufacturer design specifications. See the ULTEM™ 9085 resin material datasheet for specific material properties. These additional colors are listed below:

• Red
• Aircraft Gray
• Gunship Gray
• Dream Gray
• White 7362
• Jana White

*Additional colors are not available on the F3300 printer.
