Austin, TX - Ultem material, now offered with Solid Concepts' fused deposition modeling technology, is a flame retardant, high-performance thermoplastic for 3D printed prototypes and especially end-use products.
Particularly beneficial to the aerospace and automotive industries, Black Ultem meets FAR 25.853 standards for flame, smoke, and toxicity ratings required for commercial aircraft interiors. Its high strength-to-weight ratio and heat deflection temperature of 307° at 264 psi make it useful for a number of high stress environments.
Solid Concepts foresees considerable benefits for a large number of products requiring a material that withstands environmental wear and tear. With a surface that easily camouflages grease and dirt, Black Ultem is a ruggedized material ready for the road or skies.
Solid Concepts provides rapid prototyping and custom manufacturing services, with capabilities in polyjet, stereolithography (SLA),3D color prints, selective laser sintering (SLS), direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), CNC models and patterns, QuantumCast advanced cast urethanes, and composites.
