ASA Prime

ASA Prime is our high-end zero warp engineering grade filament, based on regular ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate). Due to our enhanced formulation, ASA Prime has exceptional strength with a high impact resistance and excellent interlayer adhesion. With ASA Prime you will create precise, detailed prints that are UV and weather-resistant, making it the perfect material for outdoor applications.

Printing recommendations:

  • For the best results, print at 235–255°C*. 
  • Recommended printing bed temperature is 80-100°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 ASA 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 ASA Prime object is by applying acetone to its surface. We recommend submerging the object in acetone directly as opposed to using vapour smoothing.

Applications

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

Zero warping

When printing with regular high-performance materials such as ASA, 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, ASA Prime has zero warping and excellent interlayer adhesion, which eliminates these common issues of regular ASA altogether.

High heat resistance

ASA Prime has a high heat resistance, making it an extremely suitable material for printing parts that need to withstand higher temperatures. For this reason, ASA 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. ASA Prime has a high impact strength, meaning it can resist a high amount of impact without influencing the integrity of your print.

Strong UV & weather resistance

ASA Prime is one of the most durable yet strong materials used for 3D printing. Being UV and weather-resistant, ASA Prime is extremely suitable for a wide variety of outdoor applications. The high impact strength of ASA Prime in combination with its durability, makes it the perfect material for prints that needs to withstand the test of time.

Excellent first-layer & interlayer adhesion

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

High-precision printing with fine detail

With ASA 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.

Perfect for high-speed printing

ASA Prime is perfect for high-speed printing (≤350mm/s) while leaving its mechanical properties uncompromised. This allows you to print at high speed, without having to worry about its possible effects on the end result.

Product Storage

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