A stainless steel solution for high mechanical stress and corrosive applications
Note: To use 17-4 PH filament you will have to install the Hotend M. Printing Ultrafuse 316L and 17-4 PH with a standard nozzle will seriously damage the hotend.
Find out more about the hotend M design: Hotend M.
Ultrafuse 17-4 PH is a filament of hardened stainless steel composite with chromium-copper martensitic precipitation. It's magnetic and fully heat treatable to get high levels of strength and hardness, maintaining its mechanical and corrosion resistance at temperatures up to 315°C.
Parts printed with Ultrafuse 17-4 PH filament obtain their final full metal properties via a debinding and sintering process.
- Jigs and fixtures
- Series production
- Functional parts and prototypes
17-4 PH parts are ideal for the Petrochemical, Aerospace, Automotive, and Medical industries.
You can purchase 17-4 PH from our online store: Ultrafuse 17-4 PH.
17-4 PH compatibility with BCN3D printers / hotends:
Supported materials combinations
The Ultrafuse 17-4 PH is not compatible with the current BCN3D Filaments.
17-4 PH printing settings - Hotend M:
Note: BCN3D Lab develops specific configurations for each material and printer. Make sure to use the last BCN3D Stratos version.
Build plate adhesion
This filament doesn't absorb humidity from the air. However if the material is not in use for extended periods of time, it is recommended to keep the 17-4 PH spools in a box or airtight container.
17-4 PH emits low levels of fumes and particles when printed. We recommend printing it in a well-ventilated area to ensure a healthy environment.
