ABS-M30 is an advanced material that can be up to 70% stronger than normal ABS thermoplastics, while exhibiting superior layer bonding for more durable 3D-printed parts. This is the basic material used by Fast Radius for FDM 3D-printing, and is suitable for functional prototypes, low volume manufacturing, and one-off products.
Polycarbonate is a strong, reliable material that can be up to 60 percent stronger than ABS, while providing exceptional printing accuracy. Polycarbonate is transparent to RF radiation, so it is the appropriate choice when signals need to pass through the part.
Polycarbonate-ABS composites provide the best of both worlds for ABS and PC alike. With PC-ABS, you get the superior strength and durability of PC alongside the flexibility of ABS materials. This makes PC-ABS ideal for functional prototyping and one-off production in cases where neither ABS nor PC are sufficient alone.
ULTEM 1010 is a high-tech material engineered for high strength and high temperature applications. With the ability to withstand temperatures over 400°F and the highest tensile strength available in an FDM plastic, ULTEM 1010 is intended for high-end functional parts and prototypes. ULTEM 1010 is suitable for aerospace applications.
ABSplus-P430 is a production polymer designed to produce industrial parts comparable to traditional manufacturing methods in an additive manufacturing system. It is ideal for prototyping, one-off parts, and low volume production runs of parts that require good mechanical properties and low cost.
ABS-ESD7 is an ABS thermoplastic formulated for applications which require static electricity dissipation. To leverage this property, select this material for electronics packaging and containers which should not exhibit buildup of particulates. Jigs for electronics components are a popular example of such an application
When both transparency and increased strength are the needs at hand, ABS-M30i is the proper choice. With all the transparent flexibility of ABSi and the strength of ABS-M30, with (ISO 10993 USP Class VI biocompatability to boot, ABS-M30i is ideal for use in the food packaging and medical fields.
ASA is a next-generation building block for colorful parts in outdoor applications. With a wide variety of colors available and exceptional resistance to UV radiation, all on top of matching or exceeding the mechanical properties of ABS, ASA could very well be the new standard prototyping material.
PC-ISO is an industrial form of Polycarbonate that is biocompatible, allowing it to be used for functional prototyping and one-off parts in the medical industry. Deriving its name from the ISO 10993 USP Class VI standard it meets, PC-ISO is also suitable for food and drug packaging, as well as any other product requiring its eponymous qualification.
PPSF(polyphenylsulfone) is known for is high temperature resistance. Parts made with PPSF also exhibit the highest chemical resistance found in FDM products, with users being able to treat PPSF in a steam autoclave, with EtO (ethylene oxide), and with plasma if desired. This makes PPSF ideal for Aerospace, Automotive, and Medical applications.
ULTEM 9085 is a high-performance thermoplastic optimized for its flame retardant characteristics and FST rating. UlTEM 9085 is appropriate for applications where open flame is a danger and toxic byproducts of combustion are intolerable. Combined with its high strength to weight ratio, this makes ULTEM 9085 ideal for all transportation industries: aerospace, ground, and marine.
Nylon 12 is the first of a new line of nylon materials that complements existing FDM possibilities. When fatigue resistance is the critical variable, this is the material to start with. Thought that is not to suggest that Nylon 12 falls short when it comes to mechanical properties. Components made of Nylon 12 offer unparalleled fatigue resistance and toughness, with all the freedom and convenience of FDM manufacturing.
