Smart ABS filament 1 kg
Smart ABS filament Spectrum Filaments is a durable and impact-resistant material that has specific qualities such as high impact resistance and relatively high rigidity. This "smart" version of ABS plastic has improved processing parameters that significantly reduce the difficulties that accompany additive manufacturing using standard ABS. It has less shrinkage and reduced emissions of harmful volatile substances during processing. An indisputable advantage is that the material retains its properties at temperatures down to -40 °C.
Compared to standard ABS, Smart ABS has the following features:
- Reduced shrinkage.
- Shiny surface of printed products.
- Lower print temperature.
- Increased flow rate.
The ability to carry out chemical treatment (acetone vapor) on Smart ABS provides extremely smooth surfaces of printed products. Therefore, the items considered, as mentioned above, are used in industrial design and a broadly defined field related to decoration.
Smart ABS characteristics
- High impact resistance and rigidity while retaining a relatively high dimensional accuracy.
- High gloss of external surface.
- Reduced warping ratio (0.5 - 0.7 %).
- HDT – 85 °C.
- VICAT – 93 °C.
- Good interlayer adhesion, especially using 3D printer with heated chamber.
- Low water absorption.
- Easy post-processing (grinding, drilling, sawing).
Smart ABS usage
- Manufacturing of all kinds of enclosures, guards, protectors and other similar items subject to impacts.
- Possibility of mechanical treatments allows to produce items to facilitate and help conduct installations, i.e. handles, rules, gauges.
- End-use parts.
- Industrial design.
- Custom components.
Smart ABS Packaging
The thread weighing 1.0 kg is wound on a transparent spool, which contains information about the type of material, diameter, color and recommended printing temperature. Each coil is packed in a vacuum with a dehumidifier. All in the original Spectrum Filaments foil cardboard.
- Outer diameter - 200 mm.
- Width - 67 mm.
- Inner diameter - 52 mm.
- Weight of empty coil - ± 250 g.
Verify quality of 3D plastic thread
Spectrum Filaments is the only company in Poland and one of the few in the world that has a tool for testing purchased filaments. VERIFY YOUR SPOOL is the most accurate quality control system on the market, ensuring that Spectrum Filaments products meet his stringent requirements.
Filament for 3D printers is produced by free extrusion, which is one of the most difficult extrusion processing technologies, due to the particularly significant influence of process parameters on product dimensions and material homogenization. During the manufacturing process, each 1mm of Spectrum Filaments is continuously measured in 2 axes with an accuracy of ±0.8 µm, resulting in a quality end product. To prove this, Spectrum Filaments, as one of the few manufacturers in the world, has introduced the possibility of an online presentation, individually for each coil produced:
- diameter travel along the entire length of the coil;
- average diameter;
- standard deviation.
