Beat harsh conditions with PrimaSelect ASA+ (Acrylonitirle Styrene Acrylate) filament. Especially developed to be used in demanding environments where you need UV and water resistance, thermal stability and improved chemical resistance. So if you are looking for a tougher replacement to ABS you have found it! ASA+ has a low-gloss matte finish which makes it perfect for technical prints where you really need to see all the details.
ASA+ can withstand UV light 10x better than ABS and this makes ASA+ perfect for parts to be used outdoors where it will be exposed to the sun.
Higher long-term heat resistance, and better chemical resistance. ASA+ is significantly more resistant to environmental stress then most other materials and that is why it has been used in the auto and marine industry for many years.
Printing with ASA+
If you can print ABS you can print ASA+. Prints with temperature around 230 – 255 °C with your heatbed set to about 80 – 100 °C. Perfect for applications like, automotive parts, outdoor furniture, technical parts, sensor housings or just on prints where you dont want a glossy surface.
Tip If you print at the higher end of the temperatur scale you will have a stronger finished product.
