ASA can be considered the true successor to ABS . Compared to ABS, it is UV stable , it shrinks less during printing and the smell during printing is also much weaker. ASA prints are strong , tough and versatile. The solidification temperature is significantly higher than that of PLA and PETG, which gives ASA prints excellent heat resistance - signs of deformation do not appear until temperatures of around 93 °C . All these properties predetermine ASA for printing objects intended for long-term outdoor use .

The danger of shrinkage (warping) cannot be completely avoided even with ASA, especially with larger models . Even with a heated pad set to 110°C, large prints can start to curl and peel off the pad. But the twist is less than when printing with ABS. But this problem can be eliminated by printing in a printer box or a high skirt .

Printing from ASA requires specific conditions for printing. During printing, odors and substances that can be harmful to health are released. Therefore, always print in a well-ventilated separate room where you do not spend much time. However, do not create a draft in the immediate vicinity of the printer - it can negatively affect the quality of the print.

Preparation of the printing mat

When printing from ASA material, we recommend using a flexible printing plate with a smooth PEI surface. For a textured sheet with a PEI powder coating, the adhesion of the material may be too strong, which could lead to surface damage. Preparing a smooth PEI sheet is easy: simply clean the surface with isopropyl alcohol. To remove the print, wait for it to cool - it will then peel off easily.

  • Advantages:
  • Suitable for outdoor use - UV stable
  • High temperature resistance    
  • Detailed printing without stringing

  • Recyclable

  • Disadvantages:
  • Large models can twist
  • Odor during printing (but less than ABS)
  • Contains styrene
  • Hygroscopic
  • Very strong adhesion to the grain plate can cause damage to its surface - we recommend printing on a printing plate with a smooth PEI surface
