Materials

The Fortus 380mc machine is designed to build parts using seven different production-grade thermoplastic FDM materials, including the latest ASA material. ASA gives you all the benefits of ABS-M30 plus UV stability and better aesthetics. Our Fortus 380mc is licensed to run them all.

ASA

ASA is the latest materials offered by Stratasys. In addition to being slightly stronger than ABS-M30, it has greater resistance to UV and better aesthetics. ASA is an excellent choice for parts that will be exposed to the elements. We stock in light grey, white, ivory, black, and blue please call for other colors.

ABS-M30

ABS-M30 is stronger than standard ABS and is a good all-around material choice that boasts excellent tensile, impact, and flexural strength. It is available in six colors.

We no longer stock this as we have standardized with ASA, which meets or exceeds ABS properties. We can supply ABS-M30 if desired upon special request.

ABS-ESD7

ABS-ESD7 is a good material for use around static-sensitive products. Its uses include electronic jigs, fixtures, and mounts.

ABS-M30i

ABS-M30i is bio-compatible and suitable for medical, pharmaceutical, and food packaging.

Not stocked call for availability.

Nylon 12

Nylon is a tough material that has good resistance to fatigue. This makes it a great choice for snap fit parts.

PC

PC has exceptional mechanical properties and heat resistance. It is a good choice for parts that will be exposed to higher mechanical stresses.

PC-ABS

PC-ABS is a high-impact engineering thermoplastic ideal for functional prototyping, tooling and low-volume manufacturing. PC-ABS also delivers excellent feature definition and surface finish.

 

PC-ISO

Like ABS-M30, PC-ISO is bio-compatible, but it has greater strength and thermal properties. It is a good choice for parts or tooling used in the food, drug, and medical industries.

Not stocked call for availability.

TPU-92A

FDM TPU 92A is a resilient thermoplastic polyurethane combining flexibility and stretch with abrasion and tear resistance.
