Forward AM by BASF relies on 25 years of experience in polymer development and filament extrusion. With our dedication to quality and extensive expertise in filament development, we are the biggest manufacturer in Europe with an exclusive focus on 3D printer filaments.
Our standard filaments Ultrafuse PLA, Ultrafuse PET, and Ultrafuse ABS are all available in several colours and diameters of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.
Our engineering filaments give 3D printing professionals the competitive edge. These high-performance materials improve productivity (reduce printing time, shorter innovation cycle) and lower costs.
Sustainability meets high performance: Ultrafuse® rPet is a printer filament made of 100% recycled PET, which makes it eco-friendly without compromising on printing properties and material performance.
Our support materials Ultrafuse BVOH, and Ultrafuse HiPS are the perfect addition to your Ultrafuse filament of choice.
Discover our broad and growing category of Ultrafuse flexible filaments with TPU, TPE, and TPC. Available in several shore hardnesses and colours.
Designed for ultimate ease of handling on conventional Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printers. Ultrafuse 316L is an innovative filament for the production of 316L-grade steel parts.
Our metal filaments are cost-efficient, easy to process and meet the Metal Injection Molding (MIM) industry standard for catalytic debinding and sintering. Our industry grade metal-polymer composites support a broad range of applications including tooling, jigs and fixtures, small series production, functional parts, prototypes, and complex artistic parts like jewellery.
Our experts for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) strive to create filaments which are easy to print, reliable and offer the highest quality possible. All of our materials are meticulously tested and crafted into outstanding filaments by state-of-the-art machinery in our factory. Our extensive product range high temperatures and engineering, filaments for temporary support material and even metal filaments our product range Ultrafuse® offers you ease of print, dimensional stability, durability and flexibility.
We are integrated in a worldwide network of renowned raw material suppliers, compounders, research institutes, and additives manufacturers. Embedded in this dynamic environment we are able to constantly develop materials which give 3D printing professionals the competitive edge. Our high-performance filaments are made to improve productivity through faster and reliable printing, lower costs, and reduce time to market.
With our constant research, development and in-house production, Forward AM offers applications for both Bowden and direct-driven extrusion systems. Should you require a bespoke filament for specific applications, you will find our team of creative and experienced PhD polymer chemists and highly-skilled 3D print specialists as competent partners.
