ABS17THGR1 ABS Thermochromic 3D printer filaments

ABS Thermochromic 3D printer filaments

Product Description


ABS Thermochromic 3D printer filaments are made of high purity Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene pellets with a tight diameter tolerance. It is a normal ABS formulated to provide a discoloration effect when exposed to heat. They resist higher temperatures and offer great machinability, flexibility and strength making it the preferred choice of engineers and professionals. ABS plastic can be dissolved and welded in our 434 Acetone making post processing easy. It is important to note that a heated bed printer is required to work with this type of material and because it is petroleum based it emits a slight hazardous odour when heated, making a less desirable for home use. It is recommended that this product be printed in a well ventilated area. ABS print temperature is 210 °C – 240 °C / 410 °F – 464 °F C on a heated bed at 110 °C / 230 °F (These temperatures may vary between printers and colours).
