SIMILAR TO ABS, ONLY BETTER
While ABS may be more familiar with most because of its popularity in mass production, ASA actually matches or even exceeds the mechanical properties of the former and has greater heat resistance.
Moreover, ASA demonstrate exceptional UV stability and with its matte finish, has the best aesthetics of any FDM thermoplastic. Thus, it’s ideal for end-use parts in outdoor commercial and infrastructure applications.
