FDM Production-Grade Thermoplastic Materials
FDM thermoplastic materials enable us to create large, durable 3d printed models and parts for a wide range of Rapid Prototyping applications. Parts produced using FDM technology are made with real production-grade thermoplastics – the same raw material used in the gold standard of manufacturing – injection molding.
Create durable engineer grade plastics
ABS is widely used in applications where impact-resistance and structural strength are necessary. It is accurate, durable and robust enough for field testing or demonstration units. Because of its excellent dimensional stability, it is ideal for pre-production rapid prototypes that can accurately predict performance of injection molded parts.
Available in Blue, Yellow, Red, Steel Gray, Green, Black, White and Gray
25-70% stronger than Standard ABS and with a greater tensile, impact, and flexural strength
ABS-M30 has greater tensile, impact and flexural strength than standard ABS. Layer bonding is significantly stronger than that of standard ABS, for a more durable part. ABS-M30 is ideal for any of the following applications: form, fit , function, concept modeling, feature detail, snap-fits, vacuum metallization, electroplating, and as a master for RTV molding, vacuum forming and rapid manufacturing of end-use products.
Available in White, Black, Dark Gray, Blue, and Red

PC – ABS
PC-ABS is a blend of polycarbonate and ABS plastic
The superior durability of this blend combines the strength of PC with the flexibility of ABS. PC/ABS offers the most desirable properties of both materials – the superior mechanical properties and heat resistance of PC and the excellent feature of ABS. PC/ABS blends are commonly used in automotive, electronics and telecommunications applications. PC/ABS is an affordable option where strength and rigidity are necessary in conjunction with toughness and temperature tolerance.
