FDM Thermoplastics

Stratasys FDM Thermoplastic Materials

Production-grade Materials for Durable Plastic 3D Printed Parts

Put your 3D printed parts through tough testing and harsh environments in industrial environments. Products that use FDM materials are able to withstand frequent utilizations on the production floor and have been tested to perform well in HVAC prototyping and auto racing applications.

With properties of toughness, electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, UV Resistance, VO flammability and FST ratings, FDM materials are ideal for demanding designers and engineers in aerospace, automotive, medical and other industries.
