3D ABS Printing

The appearance of ABS is opaque and ivory-colored granular material, non-toxic, tasteless, low water absorption and high gloss of 90%. The ABS material 3d printing is widely used in different fields, such as automobile, instrumentation, electronic appliances, etc. It is a kind of thermoplastic engineering plastics with a wide range of uses.The ABS material for 3d printing has a variety of excellent properties, such as good impact strength, good dimensional stability, heat resistance, low temperature resistance and excellent electrical properties, wear resistance.

ABS 3d printing service is more suitable for molding and mechanical processing. ABS has a good combination with other materials, and is easy to do surface printing, Painting and coating processing, such as surface spraying, metal, electroplating, welding, hot pressing and bonding processing.

3d ABS Printing Material Properties

For ABS 3d printing service, plastic ABS resin is one of the most widely used polymers with the largest yield at present. It combines the advantages of Various properties of PB, PAN and PS organically, and has excellent mechanical properties balanced with toughness, hardness, and rigidity.

The properties of ABS material 3d printing are mainly divided into the following aspects.

General Performance
Mechanical Properties
Thermal Properties
Electrical Performance

General Performance of 3D ABS Printing

ABS is a kind of resin with good comprehensive properties. It has high impact strength and surface hardness in a wide temperature range. The thermal deformation temperature is higher than PA and POLYvinyl chloride (PVC), and the dimensional stability is good. The fluidity of ABS melt is better than PVC and PC, but worse than polyethylene (PE), PA and polystyrene (PS), and similar to POM and impact resistant polystyrene (HIPS). The flow characteristics of ABS are non-Newtonian fluid. The melt viscosity of ABS is related to both processing temperature and shear rate, but it is more sensitive to shear rate. ABS has superior thixotropy and is suitable for FDM printing.

Mechanical Properties of 3D ABS Printing

ABS has excellent mechanical properties:

First of all, its impact strength is excellent, can be used at very low temperature, even if ABS products are destroyed, it can only be tensile damage and not impact damage;

Secondly, ABS has excellent wear resistance, good dimensional stability and oil resistance at the same time, so it can be used for bearing under medium load and speed. The creep of ABS is larger than that of PSF and PC, but smaller than that of PA and POM. In plastics, the bending strength and compression strength of ABS are poor, and the mechanical properties are greatly affected by temperature

Thermal Properties of 3D ABS Printing

ABS is an amorphous polymer, so there is no obvious melting point, melt viscosity is high, fluidity is poor, weather resistance is poor, ultraviolet light can make it discoloration; The thermal deformation temperature is 70 C~107 C(about 85 C), and the thermal deformation temperature can be increased by about 10 C after annealing. ABS is sensitive to temperature and shear rate, and can show a certain toughness at -40C, so it can be used for a long time in the range of -40C~85C.

Electrical Performance of 3D ABS Printing

ABS electrical insulation is good, and almost not affected by temperature, humidity and frequency, can be used in most environments.

Environmental Performance of 3D ABS Printing

ABS is not affected by water, inorganic salts, alkali-alcohol and hydrocarbon solvents and a variety of acids, but soluble in ketones, aldehydes and chlorinated hydrocarbons, and will produce stress cracking under the erosion of acetic acid and vegetable oil.

3d ABS Printing Materials Info
