ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common technical materials in several industries around the globe.
Its an engineering material which combines rigidity and resistance to impacts. It is the ideal material for technical applications and moving parts.
Traditionally a challenging material to print with FFF printers, it has been re-formulated to ensure good interlayer adhesion and to reduce warping. Our grade allows for excellent dimensional accuracy and high durability.
Some suggested Applications:
- Parts under high mechanical stress
- Strong prototypes and end-use parts
- Aesthetic models
- Commonly used on electronic or appliances cases, suitcases and phones
- Precision fits, knobs, lids and buttons
- Rigid models with snap-fit joints
High temperature material that can take a hit
ABS is able to withstand high service temperature. Moreover, its excellent impact strength makes it ideal for those applications where vibrations or blows would fracture materials such as PLA or PET-G.
- Attractive matt surface quality
- Good stiffness and dimensional stability
- High impact resistance, even at low temperature (-10 ºC)
- Good heat resistance, up to 100 ºC
- Improved printability
- Water resistant
- Low resistance to organic solvents
|Extruder temp||240° C – 260° C|
|Min. layer height||0.1-0.2mm|

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.
- Store it in an airtight container with desiccant
- Enclosure is required for BCN3D Sigma and Sigmax printers
- Once the part is printed, remove carefully the piece to avoid chipping the glass. The removal of the object is easier if you just apply water on the glass
