3D print strong, stable parts.

ULTEM 1010’s outstanding strength and thermal stability make it ideal for advanced tooling and prototyping applications in the automotive, aerospace, medical, and food-production industries. Its food-contact and bio-compatibility certifications expand the use of additive manufacturing into applications like custom food-production tools and autoclave-sterilizable medical devices.

3D Printing With ULTEM 1010

Available on Fortus 400mc, 450mc, and 900mc 3D Printers, ULTEM 1010 resin offers the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic. The certified grade of this material is bio-compatible and approved for food contact with NSF 51 and ISO 10993/USP Class VI certifications.

Produce large custom tools for metal, plastic, or composite parts fabrication; 3D print medical tools like surgical guides that can withstand steam autoclaving; build temperature-resistant dies, patterns, and fixtures for food production; even manufacture out-of-cabin aerospace components and under-the-hood automotive components including housings, ducts, and semi-structural components.

ULTEM 1010 resin is available in a general-purpose grade (ULTEM 1010) as well as a certified grade (ULTEM 1010 CG) for customers who want to take advantage of food-contact and bio-compatibility certifications for special applications including food production tools and custom medical applications.

ULTEM 1010 works with improved, easy-to-use breakaway support material.

Applications Include:

  • Custom tools for metal, plastic, or composite parts fabrication
  • Medical tools like surgical guides that can withstand steam autoclaving
  • Temperature-resistant dies, patterns, and fixtures for food production
  • Out-of-cabin aerospace components and under-the-hood automotive components including housings, ducts, and semi-structural components

Options Include:

  • Certified grade (ULTEM 1010 CG) for customers who want to take advantage of food-contact and bio-compatibility certifications.
  • Fortus 900mc Acceleration Kit for building large ULTEM 1010 parts and tools two to three times faster.
