This ultra-performance 30% glass fiber reinforced 3D printing filament is manufactured using real ULTEM PEI (polyether imide) resin from Sabic. Filaments made from ULTEM resin offer the ability to create parts with excellent properties at elevated temperatures due to a high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 217°C.
PEI is an amorphous, high-performance polymer which combines excellent thermal properties, exceptional dimensional stability, inherent flame retardancy, and good chemical resistance.
Benefits of PEI+GF30 Include:
Automotive / Transportation Applications: ULTEM™ resins provide automotive manufacturers with a high performance, chemically resistant, thermally-stable, cost-effective alternative to metal that is strong enough to replace steel in some applications and light enough to replace aluminum in others. For applications like transmission components, throttle bodies, ignition components, sensors and thermostat housings,
Electrical / Electronics Applications: ULTEM™ resin may be an excellent material choice for today’s demanding electrical applications, including connectors, MCB components like housings, shafts and levers, hard disk drive internals, FOUP’s, BiTS, PCB’s, MCCB internals, Plenum devices, LCD projector internals, fuel cell components and many other applications.
Recommended Print Conditions:
Annealing Printed Parts: If needed, parts printed using ULTEM™ PEI may be annealed in a hot-air oven to reduce any printed-in stresses that may be present in the part. Printed-in stresses may occur in any plastic and may result in lower than expected mechanical properties. If this is an issue with your part, then you can follow the simple 5-step ramp up/down process for annealing the ULTEM™ parts.
