Company Nomis has become the exclusive distributor of the ULTRAFUSE® 316L 3D printing filament for Southeast Europe!

Designed for ultimate ease of handling on conventional Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printers. Ultrafuse® 316L is an innovative filament for the production of 316L-grade 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.

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
