The Zortrax Z-ULTRAT Plus filament is a high resilience 3D printing filament based on ABS. It is perfect for making functional prototypes or 3D printing of complex mechanisms at one time. Whatever the purpose, 3D models created with the Z-ULTRAT Plus do not degrade over time. In addition, this 3D printing material is unaffected by high temperatures and impacts. Its exceptional resilience allows for demanding tests conducted in adverse environments. The filament is also suitable for creating durable end-use parts for the automotive industry and for technical purposes. Improved adhesion between layers enhances 3D printed parts.
Combined with a water-soluble Premium Z-SUPPORT filament, the Z-ULTRAT Plus is a reliable solution for printing hollow objects with complex geometry. Soluble support structures allow stacking of batches of parts on top of one another. This feature provides a suitable solution for cost-effective production in the short term. Based on ABS, the material can withstand post-treatment with acetone and mechanical treatment.

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.
