Z-PEI 9085 is a durable, aerospace-grade polymer with strength-to-weight ratio comparable to aluminum 6061. This filament consists of polyetherimide with a polycarbonate copolymer blend. Z-PEI 9085 exhibits excellent thermal properties and retains its properties in temperatures reaching 170° C. The most notable property of Z-PEI 9085 is very low FST (Flame, Smoke, Toxicity). The material has a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating which makes it perfect for printing flame-retardant components.
Exceptional mechanical and thermal properties are primary reasons why Z-PEI 9085 is widely adopted in automotive and aerospace industries. Flame retardancy of the material makes it suitable for fabricating aircraft interiors, ductwork, and electrical enclosures. What’s more, Z-PEI 9085 is resistant to automotive fluids and alcohols which enables printing tools that have to work with lubrication.
