ABS Prime

ABS Prime is our high-end zero warp engineering filament, based on regular ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). Due to our enhanced formulation, ABS Prime has exceptional strength with an increased impact resistance and excellent interlayer adhesion. With ABS Prime you will create precise, detailed prints that are both durable and have a beautiful surface finish.

Printing recommendations:

  • For the best results, print at 240–265°C*. 
  • Recommended printing bed temperature is 70-100°C. We recommend using an enclosure or enclosed 3D printer, though this material can be printed without an enclosure.
  • We highly recommend using the thick and textured PEI sheets/glass, as the rigidity and strength of ABS Prime require the weight and/or magnetic pull of a high-quality printing bed.

*Ideal temperature may vary when using different printers.

Smoothing techniques

A common way to smoothen the surface of your 3D printed ABS Prime object is by applying acetone to its surface. We recommend submerging the object in acetone directly as opposed to using vapour smoothing.

Applications

ABS Prime has zero warping and excellent interlayer adhesion, which allows for a significantly smoother printing process in comparison to printing with regular ABS, with no compromises on its mechanical properties.

Zero warping

When printing with regular high-performance materials such as ABS, one often comes across the issue of warping. Warping occurs when the edges of a printed part lift off the printing bed, causing deformation of the print. In combination with poor interlayer adhesion, cracks will form, leading to an overall reduction in the appearance and functionality of the print. Due to our enhanced formula, ABS Prime has zero warping and excellent interlayer adhesion, which eliminates these common issues of ABS altogether.

High heat resistance

ABS Prime has a high heat resistance, making it an extremely suitable material for printing parts that need to withstand higher temperatures. For this reason, ABS Prime is used to print prototypes and end-user parts that are to be tested under vigorous, real-world circumstances.

High impact strength

The term ‘impact strength’ refers to the ability of a material to resist deformation, cracking and fracturing under sudden and intense impact. ABS Prime has a high impact strength, meaning it can resist a high amount of impact without influencing the integrity of your print.

Excellent interlayer adhesion

ABS Prime has excellent interlayer adhesion, an attribute that is crucial for ensuring the structural integrity and strength of printed parts. Good interlayer adhesion minimizes the risk of cracking under pressure and creates a smoother printing process.

High-precision printing with fine detail

With ABS Prime, you can create prints that showcase the most intricate details without compromising on the mechanical properties you expect out of a high-engineering-grade material.

Reduced smell

ABS Prime has significantly less smell during printing compared to regular ABS, making it more pleasant to work with. Though ABS Prime has a reduced release of certain toxins and fumes when the material is heated, we still recommend working with 3D printers in a well-ventilated space.

Product Storage

We recommend storing the filament in a cool, dry enclosed space with a silica desiccant packet, away from UV light.
