BASF Ultrafuse 316L enables the production of solid 316L-grade stainless steel parts through the use of desktop FDM 3D printers and a sintering process. Ultrafuse® 316L filament consists of highly-refined metal particles embedded in thermoplastic binders. Thus as a filament, the metal-polymer composite comes with none of the occupational and safety hazards associated with the handling of fine metallic powders. This enables affordable, straightforward, and safe3D printing of stainless-steel parts.
Due to the thermoplastic nature of the filament binding materials and the differential thermal cooling during FDM printing, parts printed BASF Ultrafuse® 316L are susceptible to warp. Furthermore due to the delicate nature of the green part, care must be taken when removing parts printed in BASF Ultrafuse® 316L to avoid part deformation. Magigoo Metal provides sure and reliable adhesion during printing and enable the easy removal of the printed part through submersion in water, thus avoid potential damage to the green part.
For use of Magigoo Metal with BASF Ultrafuse® 316L a build-plate temperature of 95-105 °C is recommended, nonetheless, the printing conditions might vary between one printer and another.
Using this product with other than BASF Ultrafuse 316L filaments might cause over adhesion and damage your build surface. Follow the instructions found in the technical data sheet for best results.
