FDM TPU 92A brings the benefits of elastomers to FDM 3D printing and offers the capability to quickly produce large and complex elastomer parts. This material is a thermoplastic polyurethane and exhibits high elongation, superior toughness, durability and abrasion resistance. Typical applications include flexible hoses, tubes, air ducts, seals, protective covers and vibration dampeners.
Nylon 12CF delivers the highest strength and stiffness-to-weight ratio of any Stratasys FDM material. Its unique stiffness and strength allow it to replace metal components in fixturing applications, jigs, and production parts. Nylon 12CF’s top markets include automotive manufacturing, industrial manufacturing, recreational manufacturing, and aerospace manufacturing.
Antero 800NA is a PEKK-based FDM thermoplastic. With superior strength, toughness and wear-resistant properties of PEKK material, Antero 800NA is a lighter alternative to aluminum and steel. Using it with FDM technology eliminates the waste associated with subtractive manufacturing. Due to its chemical resistance and marginal release of gas, Antero 800NA is suitable for various aerospace applications.
Nylon 6 is the perfect material for applications that require tough and durable parts and tooling. This material goes above and beyond other FDM Thermoplastics to manufacture stronger more customized parts. The advanced technology and production-grade thermoplastics used in FDM Nylon 6 gives a competitive advantage to automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and industrial manufacturing industries in particular.
ULTEM 9085 is a reliable high-performance thermoplastic with a high strength-to-weight ratio, certifications, and an excellent FST rating. This material is flame-retardant with well-rounded thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties, which makes it ideal for aerospace, automotive, and military parts.
ULTEM 1010 is a complex material that provides the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance, and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic. This material is biocompatible and safe for food contact, with NSF 51 and ISO 10993/USP Class VI certifications. ULTEM 1010 is perfect for creating parts that will be under intense stress, such as custom food-production parts and medical devices that require autoclave sterilization.
ST-130 provides a simple way to print hollow composite parts. Tools can easily be printed and dissolved after curing, which allows you to eliminate some secondary processes, such as making molds. ST-130 can also withstand the heat and pressure of autoclave curing.
To create 3D printed parts that can withstand intense heat and chemical exposure, PPSF-PPSU is the ideal high-performance thermoplastic to use. It provides the highest heat resistance of any FDM thermoplastic and is also resistant to petroleum and solvents. PPSF-PPSU is gamma, EtO, and autoclave sterilizable.
PC-ISO is a heat-resistant, biocompatible thermoplastic that is ideal for food and drug packaging and medical device manufacturing. It can be used to build durable prototypes or parts that can be gamma or EtO sterilized. PC-ISO complies with ISO 10993 and USP Class VI.
PC-ABS is a high-impact, low-volume engineering thermoplastic that creates stronger parts that closely resemble the material properties of the final product. PC-ABS combines the strength and heat resistance of PC and the flexibility of ABS; it is ideal for creating durable parts for projects such as industrial equipment manufacturing.
PC (polycarbonate) combines speed, agility, and reliability and is the most widely used industrial thermoplastic. PC exhibits high flexural strength that is ideal to print any number of parts, prototypes, or tools while still being easily customizable.
Nylon 12 is the perfect material to utilize when printing parts that require high fatigue endurance, as it offers excellent chemical resistance, the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic. Nylon 12 builds some of the toughest parts in the industry, with 100-300% better elongation at break than any other additive manufacturing technology.
ASA is a production-grade thermoplastic combining mechanical strength with UV stability that is easy to use and aesthetically pleasing. It comes in ten fade-resistant colors that are perfect for printing any number of diverse products, from brackets to sporting goods to automotive prototypes.
ABSplus is an affordable, durable thermoplastic that comes in a wide array of colors, with an option to order custom colors. Parts that are 3D printed in this material are proven to withstand frequent use over time and perform similarly to the final part product.
ABSi is a translucent material that allows light to pass through – it comes in amber, red, and natural color. ABSi allows engineers and designers to print things beyond rigid opaque parts, which is ideal for automotive, aerospace, and medical-device manufacturing.
ABS-M30i is a durable, biocompatible thermoplastic that is ideal for medical and pharmaceutical engineers and designers. It can be used to build strong prototypes or parts that can be gamma or EtO sterilized. ABS-M30i complies with ISO 10993 and USP Class VI.
