Metal filament for 3D printing stainless-steel parts
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.
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.
