BCN3D PA

PA

Our PA is specially developed for FFF printing. It is based on BASF´s polyamide portfolio known as Ultramid®. The filament has unique mechanical properties due to its chemical structure. This makes it suitable for a wide range of applications working within a larger temperature range. 

Ultramid® is noted for its high mechanical strength, stiffness and thermal stability. In addition, Ultramid® offers good toughness at low temperatures. Owing to its excellent properties, this material has become indispensable in almost all sectors of engineering. It can be used for a wide range of different components and machine elements, such as a highgrade electrical insulation material. Ultrafuse PA is the translation of BASF´s Ultramid® to 3D printing space. It is based on copolyamide 6/66 grade of intermediate viscosity. With Ultrafuse PA, it is possible to print semi- flexible thin parts, however, it is very stiff in higher thicknesses.
