Ultem 9085 resin from the Innovative Plastics business of Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) is formulated to be strong, lightweight and flame-retardant, and it now is being used to help aerospace OEMs produce small-volume parts quickly and cost-effectively. Together with fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology from Stratasys Inc., the resin is enabling companies like Taylor-Deal Aviation LLC, based in Dallas, Texas, to create specialty parts in hours rather weeks.

The Stratasys FDM process creates 3D parts directly from computer-aided design files, layer by layer. According to SABIC, this combination of resin and FDM offers enhanced design flexibility; cost-effective low-production runs; accelerated cycle times; and compliance with Federal Aviation Administration flame, smoke and toxicity regulations.
