Category: ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Material Information

Name: Flame Retardant ABS
Source: Airwolf 3D
Description:

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) Flame Resistant / Retardant thermoplastic filament is a premium grade material that is well suited for demanding 3D printing application where flame resistance is preferred or required (electrical, aerospace, appliances / products, automobile parts, etc.) or where there is potential that a flame could ignite the plastic.

    General Comments

    Characteristics

    • Fire Retardant
    • Looks like regular ABS
    • Light Resistance
    • Heat Resistance
    • High Impact

    Applications

    • Electrical where there is potential that a flame could ignite the plastic
    • Aerospace where there is potential that a flame could ignite the plastic
    • Aappliances / products where there is potential that a flame could ignite the plastic
    • Automobile parts where there is potential that a flame could ignite the plastic

    Considerations

    • Although smoke and odor levels are low, ABS filaments must be used in well ventilated area, with a HEPA Filter powered on.
