BASF | Ultrafuse® 316L Metal Infused Filament in 2.85mm

Designed for ultimate ease of handling on conventional Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printers. BASF Ultrafuse® 316L is an innovative filament for the production of 316L-grade steel parts.

Properties
  • Produces parts of stainless-steel type 316L
  • Easy handling
  • Uniform particle distribution enhancing mechanical properties
  • OSHA-friendly processing
  • High flexibility allows funneling through complex idler pulleys and guide-roller filament transportation systems in any printer
  • Compatible with both Bowden and direct drive extruders through the use of a non-slip outer surface
  • Shrinkage during sintering requires adjustment during part design
Print Settings
  • Nozzle Temperature: 230 - 250°C 
  • Bed Temperature: 90 - 120°C 
  • Bed Material: Glass + approved glues* / polyimide tape (*Dimafix® suggested)
  • Nozzle Diameter: ≥ 0.4 mm
  • Print Speed: 15 – 50 mm/s
Highlights
 BASF Ultrafuse® 316L combines greater freedom of design with a low total cost of ownership. 3D-printed parts acquire their final properties, for example in terms of hardness and strength, through a debinding and sintering process developed by BASF, which has emerged as the industry standard.
BASF Ultrafuse® 316L formulates thermoplastic binders with 90 mass percent of highly-refined metal particles. As a filament, the metal-polymer composite comes with none of the occupational and safety hazards associated with the handling of fine metallic powders, turning 3D printing of stainless-steel parts affordable, straightforward, and safe.
Which 3D printers should I use with Ultrafuse® 316L?
Designed for secure and easy handling on conventional, open-material Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) printers, Ultrafuse® 316L comes with a wide processing window. To help you succeed in 3D printing metal parts we provide printer processing guidelines including Ultrafuse® 316L parameter sets. In addition, consultancy and on-site support are available to help ensure the material performs on your printer.
