Product description

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.

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.

The 3 step process to create metal parts with (almost) every FDM 3D printer

  1. Printing
  2. Debinding
  3. Sintering

Debinding and Sintering services

If you want to make prototypes in metal it doesn't make sense to invest in debinding and sintering equipment. You can use the Elnik Systems Debind and Sinter service. Coupons and more information available here!

Properties of Ultrafuse® 316L

  • 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

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.
