Netherlands filament maker Innofil3D has just announced the launch of two new filaments:

Ultrafuse Z PCTG – as the first electrostatic discharge (ESD) safe filament produced by BASF, this all-purpose material is affordable, non-marring, offers ease in printing and finishing, and is strong enough for lightly loaded fixtures, meant to outpace other materials like polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified (PETG).

New ESD safe filament: Ultrafuse Z PCTG

“It shows very smooth surface properties, which help to prevent latent failures in electronics,” states the Innofil3D team in their latest press release.

Ultrafuse Z PCTG is also powered by Essentium, a materials development partner that has been partnering with BASF for a couple of years now in developing more advanced materials and platforms.

This filament is meant for use in applications like:

  • Handheld tools
  • Electronic fixtures
  • Robotics
  • Automation components
  • Explosion-proof environment parts

Ultrafuse TPU 80A LF – if you are looking for a flexible filament, explore this material further to print on multiple types of platforms. Ultrafuse TPU 80A LF is meant to offer versatility as a filament for direct drive extruders, but it also works for bowden extruders (where weight is reduced from the printhead by attaching the extruder to the printer body at the tradeoff of having to push filament through a tube which is generally problematic for flexible materials). Innofil3D states that there is no other filament to match the printability users will experience with this material, including other features like abrasion and chemical resistance.

This filament is suitable for applications like:

  • Vibration absorbers
  • Grips, clamps
  • Bumpers
  • Seals, suction cups, plugs

This material will join the Ultrafuse series by Innofil3D, which already includes Ultrafuse PA and Ultrafuse TPU 85A, known respectively for their unique mechanical qualities and ability to work in a broader temperature range, and uses for FFF 3D printing with BASF´s Elastollan® materials.

Innofil3D has kept the momentum going through the years in offering users a wide variety of  filaments. Their team’s mission is to keep surpassing the expectations of their customer base, while taking FDM 3D printing to the next level–as they continue to strive to make the perfect filament. Innofil3D states that all their materials and products are ‘one hundred percent traceable to the source,’ arriving to the factory in raw pellets where they are carefully dried before processing and use.

We have followed Innofil3D’s progress as they have partnered with other industry leaders in 3D printing, were acquired by BASF for further expansion of materials development, and even made a foray into filaments made suitable for racing. Find out more about Innfofil3D here.
