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!
