FlashForge ASA 1.75 mm Black
FlashForge ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) filament is made of high quality material. It is known for its excellent combination of features that make it suitable for outdoor use and demanding environments. It provides high impact strength and can withstand high mechanical loads, making it suitable for parts requiring durability and resistance to deformation.
The main feature of ASA filament is its high resistance to UV radiation, making it ideal for outdoor applications where there is prolonged exposure to sunlight. Models made of ASA material retain their colour and structure even after prolonged exposure to the sun.
In addition, ASA filament is also resistant to a wide range of weather conditions, including rain, humidity and temperature fluctuations. Under all these conditions, it maintains its strength and dimensional stability in external environments.
ASA filament has good chemical resistance, including to acids, chemicals and solvents. This property allows 3D printed models to withstand exposure to certain chemicals without significant deformation or damage.
It is printed in a similar way to ABS, which means that a higher 3D printing temperature and the use of a closed chamber are required to reduce flexing and improve the quality of the 3D print. ASA gives the finished models an attractive appearance, while also preserving fine details and ensuring a smooth surface. ASA filament is thus widely used for outdoor applications including automotive parts, signs, garden furniture, architectural models and functional prototypes. Its combination of UV and temperature resistance and mechanical strength makes it suitable for demanding applications.
