ABS-M30 is very similar to injection molding ABS material, bringing its familiarity and versatility to 3D painting. ABS 3d printing filament is the best choice for form, fit, and function testing and most other 3D printing applications.
Some of the main characteristics of ABS-M30 include strength and toughness while being lightweight and resilient. ABS is an ideal choice for utility and economy. ABS-M30 3d printing filament is the best choice for tooling and end-use parts.
ABS (M-Type) printing filament is ideal if you are looking for strength as well as flexibility. ABS features superior melt flow characteristics and has a high tolerance for hot temperature making it suitable for items that are frequently handled, dropped, or heated.
Advantages of Argyle’s ABS 3D Printing Filament
A bit less glossy, so it doesn’t look like cheap plastic
Tough and durable material
Water and chemical resistance
Smoothing capabilities with acetone
No more storing empties for return to OEM or landfill
ABS Filament Colors Types and Sizes
1.75 mm ABS Filament
White ABS Filament
- Black ABS Filament
The 9 specialty colors of ABS filament can be categorized into the 4 following types.
CONDUCTIVE ABS FILAMENT
Right now there is one color for conductive ABS filament, which is Black ABS Filament . The filament can be used for anti-static, dissipative, or the conduction of electric current. Sizes come in 1.75 mm Filament .
GLOW IN THE DARK ABS FILAMENT
As the name implies, the glow in the dark ABS filament will shine in the dark. Please allow the filament or print to retain light or charge in regular light first. Currently, we have one color for glow in the dark, which is green. We experimented with glow in the dark blue, but the blue version did not glow brightly. Sizes come in 1.75 mm ABS.
FLUORESCENT ABS FILAMENT
The fluorescent ABS filament colors will glow under UV light, which is also known as black light. We have four fluorescent colors, which are fluorescent orange, fluorescent green, fluorescent yellow, and fluorescent blue. We did have a fifth fluorescent color which was fluorescent red, but it did not shine brightly under UV light. We renamed fluorescent red to red ruby. Sizes come in 1.75 mm ABS.
COLOR CHANGE BY HEAT ABS FILAMENT
This type of ABS filament (hyper color) will change colors depending on the temperature of the filament. The ABS filaments change color at approximately 31°C (88°F). Below 31°C the filaments are one color; above 31°C the filaments are a different color. Therefore, this ABS filament is heat activated. The easiest way to visualize this change is to simply blow a hair dryer on the filament. We currently have three variants of this type of ABS filament, which are green to yellow, gray to white, and purple to pink. Please see the below video for illustration of the color changing effect. Sizes come in 1.75 mm ABS.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is ABS filament in 3D printing?
In simple words, ABS stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, a thermoplastic filament. It has the base of monomers Acrylonitrile, 1,3-Butadiene, and Styrene with petroleum.
What is ABS filament good for?
ABS is known for its strength, flexibility, and durability. ABS filament is widely used in prints that need all of the qualities mentioned above. Some example includes home appliances, medical devices, sports equipment, and bricks.
