The Z-ULTRAT filament of Zortrax is an ABS-based plastic blend designed for durability and excellent surface quality. This filament is ideal for all kinds of high-quality applications: functional prototyping, end-use parts, tools and works of art. Its exceptional hardness allows you to test models in real conditions. Models 3D printed with Z-ULTRAT have better durability than those printed in standard ABS filament, so they will last longer. This material is resistant to high temperatures and impacts, it is also the most ideal ABS plastic of Zortrax filament range which allows you to avoid the effects of warping (heat-related deformation of plastic).
The surface of 3D printed models can be post-treated with acetone and physical treatment. With a diameter of 0.4 mm, the Z-ULTRAT filament is available in different colors divided into four palettes: basic, neutral, neon and pastel.

Features of material
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene ) is a thermoplastic polymer. It is often used in everyday products (remote controls, LEGOS etc ...). It begins to soften at 90 ° C and melt at 190 ° C. ABS is heat resistant and is quite flexible. It will be suitable for printing small, precise and mechanical parts due to its higher resistance to heat and impacts. The use of ABS requires the systematic use of a heatbed to limit the effects of shrinkage, the main defect of this material.
ABS contains Styrene, which is emitted during melting in the form of fine particles, which can be dangerous for people with respiratory disorders and whose effects on humans are little known. As a precaution, we recommend you to use careened and filtered 3D printers in order to print in ABS, in dedicated empty spaces or spacious and ventilated place. Otherwise, please consider using the PLA filament, which does not present any known danger for the man until this day.
