ABS 3D Printer Filament

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is the second most commonly used filament. ABS 3D printer filament has moderate strength and flexibility, and it features superior melt flow characteristics. ABS has a high heat tolerance, which allows it to withstand hot temperatures, but where it really shines is its durability. This filament is ideal for items that are frequently handled, dropped, or heated. These high-quality ABS material properties make this the right choice for general-purpose printing.

There are many versatile ways to use ABS material, but it’s often found in household goods, such as LEGO bricks, office supplies, and bike helmets! Products made of ABS 3D printer filament are extra tough. They can survive high-heat conditions and multiple impacts. When printing, users should remember the high printing temperatures may lead to warping as products cool. A heating bed should take care of this problem. We sell ABS filament in 1.75mm and 2.85mm diameters. Example products include phone cases, high-wear toys, tool handles, automotive trim components, and electrical enclosures.
