In this video, we talk about the uses, functions, and properties of ULTEM™ 1010 3D Printing filament. This new material is extremely strong, chemically resistant, heat resistant, and a slew of other desirable properties!

With its high ultimate tensional and flexural strength, flame resistance, outstanding rheology resulting in a great dimensional stability, high work temperature and high chemical resistance and biocompatibility, ULTEM™ 1010 is used in a variety of high performance applications in aerospace, medical devices, automotive and electrical/electronics applications. 

ULTEM™ is a semi-transparent, high-strength filament that gives users the ability to create quality parts in the FDM process. The items you produce will have excellent properties because ULTEM™ can withstand high temperatures. Due to its thermal and chemical stability, ULTEM™ material is ideal for medical devices, aircraft components (this material is certified for commercial aerospace projects), and automotive applications. Unlike other thermoplastics, ULTEM™ is an actual production plastic that allows you to create complex designs. It’s a part of the polyetherimide family, meaning it can endure high-stress processes. Overall, it’s a great choice if you need to confidently print a variety of parts on low-volume production; it’s reliable, powerful, versatile, and non-toxic. Plus, you won’t experience any cracking or warping after molding your parts. Whether you’re operating a large or small company, this thermoplastic is ideal for use in advanced prototyping because it can effortlessly produce the complex parts you need.

While ULTEM™ doesn’t cost as much as PEEK, it’s still costly compared to other materials; however, the results will be worth it.


For ULTEM™ 3D printing processes, we find that INTAMSYS printers are top performers. We recommend the Funmat HT model because its advanced thermal system provides industrial quality results. You can also use the Funmat Pro HT to print objects from ULTEM™ filament; it’s ideal for large batch production. An INTAMSYS printer promises high quality at a reasonable price; ULTEM™ is also easy to machine-finish, for perfect dimensional accuracy.
