PPSF / PPSU (polyphenylsulfone) material has the greatest heat and chemical resistance of all Stratasys materials – ideal for aerospace, automotive and medical applications.
PPSF parts manufactured on our Stratasys 3D Printers are not only mechanically superior, but also dimensionally accurate, to better predict end-product performance. We can also sterilize PPSF via steam autoclave, EtO sterilization, plasma sterilization, chemical sterilization and radiation.

Take a closer look at some of Stratasys’ most popular and versatile FDM materials along with six useful applications.
The materials covered in this video span from standard plastics (ABS-M30 and ASA) to engineering (Nylon 12) and high performance plastics (ULTEM 9085 and ULTEM 1010).
PPSU combines strong mechanical performance with high temperature and chemical resistance for demanding applications like low-volume injection molds, under-hood automotive scenarios and heat, chemical, plasma and radiation sterilization.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer
Tough long-lasting parts
FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
Meet production demands
Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.
With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.
Gain new possibilities
TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.
Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
