Euro ABS is a high quality European made product which has tighter tolerances over the entire spool than comparable Chinese ABS filaments.
ABS or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is one of the most mature 3D printing filament materials used today. It is a thermoplastic that is easily molded when heated and hardens evenly when cooled. It is an extremely durable with excellent impact and wear resistance properties. Another advantage of ABS is its strong electrical insulation properties, which makes ABS ideal for electrical housings and other components that must protect from electrical charge. Components 3D printed from ABS can be finished with acetone, for a smooth and shiny appearance.
ABS has a higher resistance to heat and starts to soften at around 105º C. For this reason, 3D printed objects used in outdoor or higher heat applications tend to stand up better when printed from ABS Filament.
One of the downsides to printing with ABS is the strong smell while it prints. While it doesn’t bother most people, some people may have issues with printing with ABS in confined spaces. We recommend printing in a well ventilated room.
