Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a staple polymer in professional additive manufacturing due to its consistency and high impact resistance.



Tensile strength (25 mm /min) - 54  MPa 
Elongation at break (25mm /min - 25%
Flexural stress (2mm /min) -  77.5  MPa
Density  - 1.05g/cm³
Approx. length / kg: 1.75mm - 396m | 2.85mm - 152m
Shrink rate: 1% for regular/glow variants. 0.8% for matte (Carbon)

ABS is less brittle than PLA and melts at a higher temperature. It exhibits lower friction than PLA preventing extruder jams and clogging. Due to its nature, we recommend you don't use a layer fan to prevent warping. Also, consider keeping the surface area on the bed to a minimum and to enclose your 3D printer in a box to keep the warmth in. Our ABS filament has been tested to work with closed 3D printers such as the Zortrax m200 with great success.

Our high-grade ABS is in the following products types.

  • Coloured
  • Transparent
  • Natural (cream)
  • Glow in the Dark
  • Carbon Fiber
  • Conductive (discontinued)

We will continue to work on new colours and materials which will provide excellent results!
