Ultem 9085 vs. KIMYA PC-FR

Ultem has been approved as a 3D printing material for the railway industry for many years according to the highest fire retardancy level R1/HL3, but it has always had a niche existence. The main reasons for this are the very high material and machine costs. With PC-FR from KIMYA and our machines, this has now changed and components are up to 75% cheaper.
