What Is ULTEM Materials? | DEED 3D

ULTEM™ 9085 is the high-performance thermoplastic resin with flame-retardant. It’s widely used for digital manufacturing and rapid prototyping. Due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and its FST (flame, smoke and toxicity) rating, it is ideal for the transportation industry. With this specific certification make it become an excellent choice for the commercial transportation industry. Combined with a Fortus® 3D Production System, ULTEM 9085 is perfect for engineers to produce fully functional prototypes or end used parts and no need to care about the long lead time and traditional tooling. Meanwhile, ULTEM 9085 is suitable for Aerospace.

 

ULTEM™ 1010 owns the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength plastic in any FDM thermoplastic. Also, it is the only one FDM material with NSF 51 food-contact certification, BC(bio-compatibility) certification. Due to this unique performance make it an excellent choice for the commercial transportation industry, like Aerospace, medical, marine and ground vehicles.

What is FST?

Yes you are right, as mentioned above it is flame, smoke and toxicity
And how do we rating the the safety of Flammability? Depends on the time how long the flame last.
V-2(Drips) the drips may not burn with the flame combustion for more than 30 seconds amd the total flaming combustion time may not exceed 250 seconds.
V-1(Good)the drips may not burn with the flame combustion for more than 30 seconds amd the total flaming combustion time may not exceed 250 seconds. Yes similar to V-2

 

What is the Requirements for FST Rated V-0,please take a close look on it.

1.The specimens may not burn with flaming combustion for more than 10 seconds after either application of the test flame.

2.The total flaming combustion time may not exceed 50 seconds for the 10 flame applications for each set of 5 specimens.

3.The specimens may not burn with flaming or glowing combustion up to the holding clamp.

4.The specimens may not drip flaming particles that ignite the dry absorbent surgical cotton located 300 mm below the test specimen.

5.The specimens may not have glowing combustion that persists for more than 30 seconds after the second removal of the test flame.
