ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene copolymer) is a high-quality, amorphous, thermoplastic material used in 3D printing, especially in prototype construction. This synthetic terpolymer, consisting of the monomer types acrylonitrile, 1,3-butadiene and styrene, is characterized by its resistance to temperatures up to 95 degrees, oils and fats. What’s more, ABS is also a low-cost 3D printing filament that allows you to create prototypes quickly and at low cost. This way, ABS enables developers, designers and even architects to carry out extensive tests with regard to feasibility and function, with early error detection and immediate adaptation. This thermoplastic is also characterized by excellent post-processing options; it can be sanded, painted, glued and filled. Due to its robustness, the prototype already has very similar properties to the planned final product and can therefore be tested properly. This stability also means that ABS is also ideally suited for fixture construction and master casting models for aluminum sand casting. In combination with soluble support materials that are subsequently removed, ABS can also create internal cavities and recesses in parts. The large number of available colors opens up a wide field of possible applications.
