Description

Ultrafuse® Support Layer filament developed to be used in combination with Ultrafuse® Metal Filaments. When printed between support and the object, it creates a barrier during sintering and facilitates the separation of support from the metal part. Ultrafuse® Support Layer is not developed to print stand-alone parts and should be printed as a layer attached to the support structures in dual extrusion prints.
