BASF Ultramid grades are molding compounds on the basis of PA6, PA66 and various co-polyamides such as PA6/66. Ultramid is noted for its high mechanical strenght, stiffness and thermal stability.
In addition Ultamid offers good toughness at low temperatures. Owing to its excellent properties, this material has become indispensable in almost all sectors of engineering for wide range of different components and machine elements, as a high-grade electrical insulation material and for many special applications.
Ultrafuse PA is the translation of BASF's Ultramid to 3D printing space.
With Ultrafuse PA, it is possible to print semi-flexible thin parts, however it is very stiff in higher thicknesses. It has a lower melting temperature than PA6 and PA66 hence it can be printed in a lower temperature as well as it has better impact strenght against PA6 and PA66 which opens up a new application field to the end-users.
