      • FDM Best Practice - Standard Canister Storage ENStatasys does NOT include an expiration date on its thermoplastic materials. Our prior guidance of “best used within 3-years from the manufacturing date” has been deemed unnecessary as thermoplastics typically do not degrade over time unless exposed to high temperatures, UV, ozone, or other adverse environmental conditions.
