The Zortrax Z-ABS 3D Printing Material is a versatile and universal solution for economical prototyping and manufacturing. This plastic filament is resistant to high temperatures and impacts and withstands for basic functional testing. The matt surface of this plastic filament allows easy chemical and mechanical post-treatment. You can use acetone to merge bigger parts 3D printed separately. Rafts and unsupported support structures can be reused to prepare an ABS juice. Simply mix them with acetone and apply them on the build platform to increase the adhesion of the first layer printed in 3D. Z-ABS is available in a wide range of colors and is compatible with most 3D printers equipped with a heatbed.

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.
