Is ULTEM stronger than aluminum?

Is ULTEM stronger than aluminum?

ULTEM 9085 Very high strength-to-weight ratio. ULTEM 9085 offers comparable impact strength to metal parts like aluminium but can be made much lighter.

What is the difference between ULTEM 1010 and ULTEM 9085?

ULTEM 1010 is actually the strongest material available in the FDM materials family. Looking at tensile strength rating in the XZ orientation, ULTEM 1010 carries a rating of 9,300 psi while ULTEM 9085 is only 6,800 psi.

What ULTEM 9085?

ULTEM™ 9085 resin is a flame-retardant, high-performance thermoplastic. It features a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent heat resistance and high impact strength. It also possesses favorable flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) characteristics. Certified for high performance.

Is ULTEM a thermoplastic?

ULTEM®, the branded name for polyetherimide (PEI), is one of the few commercially available amorphous thermoplastic resins that retains its mechanical integrity at high temperatures.

What kind of material is ULTEM?

plastic material
Ultem® (polyetherimide) is a semi-transparent high strength plastic material that can operate in high service temperature environments. Ultem® is resistant to hot water and steam and can withstand repeated cycles in a steam autoclave. FDA compliant grades of Ultem® are available.

Is PEEK stronger than aluminum?

Carbon PEEK shows even higher mechanical properties, when compared to PEEK. Its Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS) can reach up to 138 MPa, making it up to 35% stronger than PEEK and some Aluminium alloys, like Al 6063. Carbon PEEK Tensile modulus is also very high, up to 14 GPa.

What kind of material is Ultem?

Is Ultem impact resistant?

ULTEM™ 9085 is primarily characterized by very high mechanical strength and impact resistance, with a high strength to weight ratio. The tensile strength is 70 MPa and elongation at break is approx. 5,3%.

Can you 3D print ULTEM?

Existing certifications: ULTEM™ resin is FST rated and one of the only 3D printing plastics certified for aircraft components. In the aerospace industry, most parts are required to have this rating to ensure the flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) resistance of a material.

Is ULTEM heat resistant?

Ultem® is the ideal thermoplastic choice for demanding, high-heat applications. This polyetherimide material can withstand continuous operating temperatures of 340° F while maintaining strength and rigidity. It is easily fabricated and bonded and offers excellent chemical resistance and high dielectric strength.

Is ULTEM electrically conductive?

Ultem® has outstanding electrical properties, with one of the highest dielectric strengths of any thermoplastic material.

Is ULTEM brittle?

While Ultem® is also resistant to a broad spectrum of chemicals, its brittle nature makes it more prone to environmental stress cracking.
