BASF – Innofil3D has an extensive selection of filaments for professional applications. We at 3DPrinters-Store are certified for our participation in extensive material training at BASF Innofil3D. In this multi-day training, we dived into the polymers down to the molecular level. In addition, this training also largely consisted of selecting the appropriate filaments for specific applications.
Below you will find a short summary and the data sheets of the Innofil3D Professional series and the BASF Ultrafuse filaments.
BASF Ultrafuse filament.
Ultrafuse® PA is specifically designed for FFF 3D printing and based on BASF's polyamide portfolio, known as Ultramid®. Thanks to its unique mechanical properties and chemical structure, this filament is suitable for a wide selection of applications operating in a wider temperature range.
Ultrafuse TPU 85A
Ultrafuse® TPU 85A is specially designed for FFF 3D printing and based on BASF's Elastollan® materials. Elastollan® is the brand name for the TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) from BASF. This material stands for maximum reliability, consistent product quality and cost efficiency.
Innofil3D Professional Series
PRO1 is a tough PLA that offers a number of advantages.
Polyamide is a thermoplastic material used in a variety of applications in various industries. PAHT CF15 has a special formulation, which provides more dimensional stability and allows to operate under continuous temperatures of 150°C with a peak temperature of 180°C, which is impossible with standard PA. The 15% carbon fiber reinforcement allows stiffer products to be printed, opening new doors for demanding printing applications.
PAHT CF15 combines high temperature and chemical resistance with extreme mechanical properties. Due to the high dimensional stability, there will be hardly any shrinkage during printing. This makes for a simple printing experience.
Polypropylene is one of the most preferred thermoplastics in various industries, especially in the automotive sector. However, achieving a high level of reinforcement has always been a problem when making filaments.
PP GF30 contains special glass fibers designed for filament making and 3D printing. This ensures that the printed objects work functionally, under certain temperature and mechanical loads.
Its UV resistance makes it more suitable than any other PP-based filament for applications that are directly exposed to sunlight.
The main properties of PP GF30 are:
PP inherently absorbs less moisture than PA. Coupled with the high level of glass fiber reinforcement, PP GF30 is a filament of selection for exceptional working environments.
PP GF30 combines great features that could not be combined before: printing stiffer parts with UV resistance is now possible.
Polypropylene or PP is widely known as a solution for automotive, (household) appliance and liquid container applications.
The properties of Innofil3D PP filament are:
ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate) is part of the ABS family and is ideal for outdoor use due to its properties: UV resistance and good mechanical properties.
HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) is known as a support material for ABS in the 3D printing community. It dissolves in D'limonene. Because it has the same printing temperature as ABS, it is an ideal material to use as a support material.
