ABS 3D Filaments
ABS filament is the most commonly used 3D printing plastic, and is used in the bodywork of cars, appliances, and mobile phone cases. It is a thermoplastic and contains a base of elastomers based on polybutadiene that makes it more flexbile, and resistant to shocks.
ABS is used in 3D printing when heated to between 230ºC and 260ºC. It is a tough material, able to easily withstand temperatures of -20ºC to 80ºC. In addition to its high strength, it is a reusable material and can be welded with chemical processes. However, ABS is not biodegradable and shrinks in contact with air, so the printing platform must be heated to prevent warping. Moreover, it is recommended to use a closed chamber 3D printer to limit particle emissions when printing with ABS.
We sell a wide variety of ABS 3D filaments of different colors
