ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a very strong and lightweight thermoplastic. ABS prints are highly resistant to weather and temperatures. ABS has a nice finish, solid mechanical characteristics, and is tough and slightly bendable. ABS objects can also be easily post-processed and finished.

All the filaments we sell are nicely boxed with usage and material properties printed directly on the inside cover, including the recommended print and heated bed temperature ranges. In addition, each spool is vacuum sealed with a moisture-reducing silicate bag to ensure filament longevity.
Filament quality and storage is one of the most important ingredient for beautiful prints. Many people focus strictly on the immediate appearance of a product and forget that a well-preserved spool is just as important. But is the biggest contribution to medium to long-term filament degradation? The answer is usually "moisture". Filament can't handle moisture very well and that is why we recommend storing your filament in a cool, dry environment, ideally in a package vacuum sealed with silicate.
