The UL94 V test performed on plastic materials measures flammability characteristics, examining how the material either extinguishes or spreads a flame once ignited.
Validated in an UL-certified lab, Novamid® AM1030 FR (F) achieved a UL 94 rating of V-0 at 1.6 & 3.2 mm wall thickness and a UL 94 V-2 rating at 0.85mm wall thickness. This means that the material, after ignition, extinguishes by itself in maximum 10 (V-0) and 30 (V-2) seconds. UL requires Blue Cards for 3D printing materials to be printer specific; this material was tested on an Ultimaker S5 printer. Nevertheless, being an open platform material, users with any open platform fused filament fabrication system can work with Novamid® AM1030 FR (F).
