Ultrafuse PA is specially developed for 3D printing and it is based on BASF´s polyamide portfolio known as Ultramid®. The filament has unique mechanical properties due to its chemical structure. This makes it suitable for a wide range of applications working within a larger temperature range.
The key features of BASF Ultrafuse PA are the high strength and high modulus. Furthermore, Ultrafuse PA shows a good thermal distortion stability.
BASF Ultrafuse® PA is the translation of BASF´s Ultramid® to the 3D printing space. It is based on a copolyamide 6/66 grade of intermediate viscosity. With BASF Ultrafuse® PA, it is possible to print semi-flexible thin parts; however, it is very rigid at higher thicknesses.
It has a lower melting temperature than PA6 and PA66, meaning it can be printed at a lower temperature and also has better impact resistance versus PA6 and PA66, opening up a whole new application field for end-users.
Recommended: Process materials in a well ventilated room, or use professional extraction systems. For further and more detailed information please consult the corresponding material safety data sheets.
BASF Ultrafuse PA filament should be stored at 15 - 25°C in its originally sealed package in a clean and dry environment. If the recommended storage conditions are observed the products will have a minimum shelf life of 12 months.
