A majority of the Ultem 1000 and Ultem 2300 is used in aerospace applications. Stren, an aircraft manufacturer uses Ultem plastic material in their aircraft assembly, including the tail cone. The key to a strong and reliable aircraft is using materials that are resistant to heat and friction. These two materials fit perfectly into any designer’s toolbox as they can withstand high temperatures, both in cold and hot environments. Ultem 1000 and Ultem 2300 also both have very high levels of damage tolerance as they are capable of maintaining stiffness at temperatures of up to 500°C (932°F).
What are PEEK material, PEEK resin, and Ultem plastic? Polyether ketone or PEEK material is a high-temperature thermoplastic. It is commonly used in oil & gas, chemicals, and aerospace industries. The properties of the most common PEEK resins include high chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and dimensional stability at high temperatures. Have you ever wondered what are the applications of PEEK and Ultem resins?
Ultem 1000 and Ultem 2300
Ultem 1000 is a high-performance engineering plastic that’s been used in everything from loudspeaker drivers to golf club heads to cameras. It’s also one of the most common engineering plastics for 3D printing. Ultem 1000 has very similar properties to Ultem 1010, but it has a higher heat deflection temperature rating and a lower density. It also has better resistance to alkalis, acids, and solvents than other common engineering plastics such as ABS and PLA. The material always appears in the form of an Ultem 1000 polymer rod.

Ultem 2300 is a copolymer of styrene and alpha-olefin. It offers good clarity, impact strength, resistance to heat and chemicals, and low water absorption.
Ultem 2300 is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that was designed specifically for 3D printing. With a very low glass transition temperature, Ultem 2300 is one of the easiest printing filaments available wherever you live in the world. PEI Ultem 2300 rod has very low moisture absorption, which keeps your final prints looking great even when they’re under humid conditions. The material has very good chemical resistance to organic solvents, acids, bases, salts, alcohols, and other substances that could cause damage to your final print. It has excellent mechanical properties at high temperatures as well. For the details, check https://www.kewardplastics.com/plastics/pei/pei-gf30.
PEEK, or polyether ketone is a thermoplastic polymer with excellent mechanical properties and chemical resistance. It is commonly used in the medical and aerospace industries due to its high-temperature tolerance and low moisture absorption.
PEEK has found many applications because it offers good thermal stability, electric insulation properties, and chemical resistance to a variety of substances.
The most common applications for PEEK material rod are in the following industries: automotive, aerospace, sporting goods, medical devices, natural gas transmission pipelines, and structural composites. Check Keward Plastic for more PEEK information.
These materials are used for a wide range of applications
Ultem plastic is one of the best engineering materials. It is a polymer material that is used for a wide range of applications. Ultem plastic is ideal for creating prototypes, design models, and low to medium production volume parts. Ultem plastic is similar to ABS plastic but stronger and more durable.
PEEK material is used in applications where the part needs to be tougher than ABS or PLA but cannot withstand the high temperatures required to print with Nylon. PEEK stands for Poly Ether Ether Ketone and it has a very high-temperature resistance of up to 268 degrees Celsius.
These new materials are revolutionizing the way we manufacture and design our products. PEEK is seeing broad applications in a variety of industries, from golf clubs to medical equipment and just about everything in between. And it can also be used for 3D printing as well, which opens up a wide array of possibilities for how and what we’re able to prototype.
