RoHS compliance of CPE+ filamant


Recommended Posts

Posted · RoHS compliance of CPE+ filamant

Hello Ultimaker Team,


We recently bought 2 Ultimaker S5s. We now have a project where we tested different materials and got the best results with CPE +.
Since this is a series part, I wanted to ask whether the Ultimaker CPE + filament is RoHS compliant.
In the new RoHS directive, four new materials that belong to the plasticizers are excluded.

The question now is whether the CPE + Filement meets the new RoHS requirements.

The following 4 materials were added as part of DIRECTIVE (EU) 2015/863 which was published on 31 March 2015.

PBB and PBDE are flame retardants used in several plastics.


·  Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)

·  Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP)

·  Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)

·  Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)

Maximum Permitted Concentration: 0.1%

Can you give me a statement if Ultimaker CPE + filament is RoHS compliant.

Thanks in advance.

    "English.pdf" is the Ultimaker Rohs statement dated October 19, 2018 and includes this statement:

    "Our materials comply with Directive 2011/65/EU as amended up to and including the Delegated Directive (EU) 2015/863."


    "SDS CPE v3.004-EN.pdf" is the Ultimaker MSDS for CPE+
