M. Holland Company, a distributor of thermoplastic resins, announced an expanded distribution agreement with BASF 3D Printing Solutions. Adding to its growing portfolio of 3D printing products and services, M. Holland is now distributing Ultrafuse® 316L, a stainless-steel composite filament from BASF. This metal-polymer provides a cost-effective, metal 3D printing solution that employs standard fused filament fabrication (FFF) systems and industry-standard debinding and sintering processes.
Ultrafuse® 316L enables plastic injection molders and OEMs to print solid metal parts on a desktop 3D printer for applications including tooling, jigs and fixtures, series production, and functional parts and prototypes. Its distinct formula offers high flexibility and enables series production of 3D printed industrial-grade metal parts.
This distribution arrangement follows a prior agreement with BASF, and enhances a growing portfolio of additive manufacturing materials from suppliers Henkel, Owens Corning, and 3DXTech. This highlights M. Holland’s commitment to strategic growth in the 3D printing market. The company is also focused on how ancillary materials can complement its already extensive portfolio of materials and services, including consulting support, prototyping, and equipment selection.
