Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

3D Printing Technology


Material Description

ABS 3D printing material is a popular choice for many 3D printing projects. This thermoplastic filament offers a great combination of strength, flexibility, and affordability that makes it an attractive option for numerous applications. ABS plastic is the most widely used thermoplastic polymer in the world and has been used for decades in everything from LEGO bricks to electronic housings.

The key advantages of using ABS as a 3D printing material are its durability, cost, heat resistance, and light weight. It also offers good formability so not only can it be moulded into complex shapes but if post-processing is required then it can be sanded or painted easily. ABS’s excellent mechanical properties make it ideal for use in industrial parts that require frequent use or exposure to extreme temperatures and weather conditions.
