From here: This material is NOT COMPATIBLE with the material station

 

Seems like it was and then was removed: 

 

Release notes

  • Version 2.0.1 changed marketing text and brand name

  • version 2.0.2 changed name on cura slicer

  • version 2.1.0 change material station temperature

  • version 2.2.0 take out material station

    Hi @GAD,

    I think this is more suitable for the Marketplace section of this forum.

     

    In general for Marketplace materials, the compatibility of BASF materials is set by BASF and not by Ultimaker, so in general it's best to reach out to them with support questions (for future questions/issues).

     

    In this case, the reason is that these materials are too stiff for the Material Station to properly handle. Typically the filament will break inside the Material Station, because the filament breaks before it bends - so it cannot give way sufficiently.
    Typically materials with a Flexural modulus over 8000 MPa have this issue (so most-often Nylons with high contents of long carbon fibers).

    You can still print this material on a 'normal' S5 without Material Station (and due to it's moisture sensitivity - it's recommended to use a third party dry storage unit like a PolyBox or Pelican Box).

    Hope this helps!

    The BASF PAHT CF15 and the Ultimaker PA print well with the material station.

    The only problem I have noticed with the filaments is that the deprime of the MS does not work cleanly.

     

    For me, I have observed this as follows.
    When unloading, the material gets stuck. With PA in every case with PA-CF in every second case. The wizard for manual unloading must then be run through.

     

    But these are only my own experiences.
