Overview

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common technical materials in several industries around the globe. Its an engineering material which combines rigidity and resistance to impacts. It is the ideal material for technical applications and moving parts.

Traditionally a challenging material to print with FFF printers, it has been re-formulated to ensure good interlayer adhesion and to reduce warping. Our grade allows for excellent dimensional accuracy and high durability.

Success stories

KAV is Bringing Bespoke Helmets to the Masses

Every year there are 3.8 million concussions from athletic endeavors. However, the six on the hockey team of Whitman Kwok’s son are what compelled the creation of KAV. Foam-based helmets, the only option in hockey and most every other sport, provide limited protection against rotational accelerations while injection molding constrains helmets to a limited number of sizes compromising fit and safety. KAV’s mission is to elevate athletic performance and protection with highly engineered, bespoke helmets.

Bed adhesion:

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.

Recommendations:

  • Store it in an airtight container with desiccant
  • Enclosure is required for BCN3D Sigma and Sigmax printers
  • Once the part is printed, remove carefully the piece to avoid chipping the glass. The removal of the object is easier if you just apply water on the glass
