ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)

About ABS

ABS is one of the most economical options for fast and durable 3d models with good mechanical properties and excellent impact resistance, superior to PLA In addition, light weight, heat resistance and chemical resistance(aqueous acids, alkalis, concentrated hydrochloric and phosphoric acids, alcohols and animal, vegetable and mineral oils) makes ABS favorable for many applications. On the downside, part with a large surface area is prone to wrap. Suitable for the environment with a temperature below 105°C/220 °F. Printed with FDM technology.
