Ultem ™ 1010 3D Filament
Ultem ™ 1010 PEI (Polyether Imide) is a high performance amorphous polymer that combines excellent thermal properties, outstanding dimensional stability, intrinsic flame retardancy and good chemical resistance. Ultem ™ resin offers the ability to create parts with excellent properties at high temperatures due to a high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 217 ° C.
The attributes of the product include:
High thermal properties: (Tg) of 217 ° C
Inherent flame resistance
Long-term hydrolytic stability
Excellent dimensional stability (low creep sensitivity and low coefficient of thermal expansion) and highly reproducible part-to-piece dimensions
Outstanding resistance and modulus even at high temperatures
Good resistance to a wide range of chemicals, such as automotive fluids, fully halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols and aqueous solutions
Stable dielectric constant and dissipation factor over a wide range of temperatures and frequencies
Automotive Applications / Transportation: Ultem ™ resins offer automotive manufacturers a high-performance, chemically resistant, thermally stable and economical alternative to metal that is strong enough to replace steel in some applications and light enough to replace aluminum in others. For applications such as transmission components, throttle bodies, ignition components, sensors and thermostat housings,
Electrical / Electronic Applications: Ultem ™ resin can be an excellent choice of materials for today’s demanding electrical applications, including connectors, MCB components such as housings, shafts and levers, hard drives, FOUP, BiTS , PCB, MCCB, Plenum, internal LCD projector, fuel cell components and many other applications.

Annealing printed parts: If necessary, parts printed with Ultem ™ PEI can be annealed in a hot air oven to reduce printing stresses that may be present in the room. Printed stresses can appear in any plastic and result in lower mechanical properties than expected. If it’s a problem with your part, you can follow the simple 5-step up / down process to anneal Ultem ™ parts.
Step 1: Place the printed parts in a cold, temperate oven.
Step 2. Set the temperature to 300 ° F and let it stabilize for 1 hour.
Step 2: After 1 hour at 300 ° F, increase the oven temperature to 400 ° F and let stand an additional 1 hour.
Step 3: After 1 hour at 400 ° F, reduce the heat to 300 ° F and let it stabilize for 30 minutes.
Step 4: After 30 minutes, turn off the oven heat and allow the printed parts to warm to room temperature inside the oven as it cools.
