M-ABS

 M-ABS is a transparent ABS filament, so strong, durable and impact resistant. Due to the low percentage of butadiene in M-ABS this filament smells much less unpleasant than ABS, and, moreover, also shows less warping. The M-ABS polymer is inherently less impact resistant than ABS, but slightly modified our M-ABS filament is still approx. 3 times more impact resistant than any regular PLA in the market. The transparency of the polymer makes it also possible to manufacture deep opaque colours, if desired.

M-ABS features:

  • Transparent, translucent
  • Not the unpleasant smell of ABS
  • High impact M-ABS
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Less warping than ABS

Packaging:

M-ABS is available in nearly any type of  packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.

Additional info:

Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 90-100 ˚C.
M-ABS can be used on all common desktop FDM technology or FFF 3D printers.

Storage:

Cool and dry (15-25 ˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
