Before we describe the process of Ultem 1010 3D printing in Anaheim CA, it is important to understand what Ultem is. It is what’s known as an amorphous thermoplastic polyetherimide, or PEI for short, type of resin. It provides incredibly elevated thermal resistance, impressive strength, and excellent stiffness. It is also resistant to numerous chemicals. For these reasons it is commonly used in the aerospace, medical, and automotive industries or other industries that require strength and resilience that other types of thermoplastics cannot provide.
Now that you know what Ultem is, let us cover what Ultem 1010 3D printing in Anaheim CA is. It is what is often referred to as the “next generation” of Fused Deposition Modeling, which is also known as FDM. Ultem 1010 is a very popular grade of PEI that has a very high tensile strength – higher than any other FDM material, in fact. More than that, it also has the highest temperature and chemical resistance. It is bio compatible and offers breakaway support material.
There are other options within the Ultem family of materials. Often, customers are trying to decide between Ultem 9085 and Ultem 1010 3D printing in Anaheim CA. While we are happy to go over all the options and their pros and cons to find the right choice for your specific project, generally speaking we suggest 9085 if toughness and flexibility are your top priorities while 1010 is a great choice if strength and resistance to temperature and chemicals are essential components.
There are many situations in which we would likely recommend Ultem 1010 3D printing in Anaheim CA including:
