What is FDM Thermoplastics?

A Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Thermoplastic is a polymer that becomes pliable or moldable above a specific temperature, and returns to a solid state upon cooling. Most thermoplastics have a high molecular weight. With thermoplastics you can 3D print durable parts into production-grade materials.

FDM Technology builds parts in the same strong, stable plastics used in injection molding, CNC machining and other traditional manufacturing processes. Harness the power of 3D printing while relying on tested, established thermoplastics.

Find your FDM Thermoplastic

Subject 3D printed parts to tight tolerances, tough testing and harsh environments. FDM fixtures, tools and prototypes withstand constant use on the production floor and perform well in punishing applications such as HVAC prototyping and auto racing.

FDM materials offer specialized properties like electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, VO flammability and FST ratings, making them perfect for demanding designers and engineers in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries.
