Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH is an ideal stainless steel for high-strength and stiff parts. It is also capable of withstanding the harshest operating conditions thanks to its excellent corrosion and heat resistance.

These properties are achieved through a proven catalytic debinding and sintering process used for traditional metal injection molding.


Each Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit includes a voucher toward post-processing your 3D print into a full metal part within 10 business days.

This is possible via BASF’s network of certified debinding and sintering services. Via an online portal, you can book your part’s post-processing on the calendar and check in on your part’s progress at any time.



The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit unlocks extra features inside the Ultimaker Cura 5 engine.

These make metal print preparation simpler – automatically and accurately compensating for shrinkage that happens during sintering across all axes. You gain better control over your part and increased metal print success.
