This functional prototype of an automotive intake manifold demonstrates ULTEM™ 1010 resin’s rugged capabilities: the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM® material. ULTEM™ 1010 resin combines excellent strength with thermal stability for advanced tooling, biocompatibility and food-contact certification.

ULTEM™ 1010 resin

FDM PEI Thermoplastic
High Strength and Excellent Thermal Properties.

ULTEM™ 1010 resin is a high-performance polyetherimide (PEI) thermoplastic, strong 3d printing material. It has high heat resistance while exhibiting the lowest coefficient of thermal expansion among FDM materials. Combined with high strength properties, ULTEM 1010 resin is the strongest FDM material and is perfect for demanding and specialized applications like lightweight composite tooling.

Certified Grade for Speciality Applications.

For special medical and food-related applications, ULTEM™ 1010 CG (certified grade) comes with additional documentation to demonstrate compliance with industry standards for ISO 10993 and USP Class VI biocompatibility, and NSF 51 food safety requirements.
