Four more build materials, that is. Specifically made for their Fortus 900mc 3D printer, the new materials have improved properties:
- SABIC’s ULTEM 9085: Strong and lightweight, this material’s claim to fame is its resistance to heat, smoke and toxicity. We suspect it might show up in aircraft.
- PC-ABS: Similar to existing materials, but has added flexibility.
- PC-ISO: Strong and flexible, but it permits sterilization, thus it will be very useful for medical applications. It’s BioCompatible!
- ABS-M30i: An improved ABS mix that provides greater strength while retaining excellent biocompatible properties.
They’ve also announced a new soluble support material, SR-30, which apparently dissolves 46-69% faster, depending on how it’s used.
