ultem PEI (polyetherimide) has struck the 3D printing world as a high performance material for 3D printing beds. ultem PEI film enables 3D printing enthusiasts to produce both ABS and PLA prints. This film offers extreme heat resistance, coupled with high mechanical strength, stiffness, UV stability, and broad chemical resistance. This combination of properties allows this film to be utilized in a wide variety of demanding new design concepts including aerospace, automotive, and even medical applications. PEI is a functional product for 3D printing due to its extremely smooth finish, high temperature resistance, and ability to provide print placement security while releasing prints smoothly. Ultem/PEI is a “no surface prep” material which allows for no major surface modifications like applying special solutions or tapes before each print. We do recommend a light wipe down of the sheet with isopropyl alcohol once in awhile.
And ultem sheet is an amorphous high-performance polymer, with high mechanical efficiency, as well as very good thermal resistance and chemical stability (continuous operating temperature at approximately 170°C), high dimensional stability and creep strength. As it has the best torsional strength of all thermoplastic plastics, it has become a cheap substitute for small steel cutting parts. Glass fibers can be used to improve its high temperature strength even further. ultem sheet is useful is numerous applications in the medical, electrical, microwave, automotive, and aircraft industries.
