This white paper will go into detail about the effects of DyeMansion VaporFuse Surfacing (VFS) on Aerospace FDM parts built in ULTEM 9085. It covers what VaporFuse Surfacing is and how the mechanical properties were altered from surface finish roughness, tensile strength, elongation, flammability.

DyeMansion VaporFuse Surfacing Impact on Advancing Additive Manufacturing

As the adoption of Additive Manufacturing increases, it is imperative to improve the strength and durability of parts.

FDM is one of the most widely adopted 3D printing technologies. The Stratasys line-up of materials includes many high-performance filaments. Tools and Processes like VFS enhance material properties, furthering the capabilities of FDM 3D printed parts.

Getting More from Materials

This study demonstrated the significant impact that VVFS can have on enhancing the esthetics and performance of additively manufactured parts, specifically those made from ULTEM 9085 resin.

As a leading additive manufacturing provider, Stratasys pushes the boundaries of what is possible, striving to glean valuable insights that not only advance aerospace manufacturing but also hold potential applications across various other industries. Through rigorous testing and analysis, we have demonstrated the transformative power of DyeMansion’s VFS on 3D-printed parts made from ULTEM 9085.

The significant improvements in mechanical properties, flammability, dimensional stability, part visuals, and surface roughness achieved through VFS exemplify our dedication to optimizing AM solutions for aerospace applications.
