PolyLite™ is a family of 3D printing filaments made with the best raw materials to deliver exceptional quality and reliability. PolyLite™ covers the most popular 3D printing materials to meet your everyday needs in design and prototyping.
PolyLite™ ABS is made with a specialty bulk-polymerized ABS resin, which has significantly lower volatile content compared to traditional ABS resins. It delivers excellent printing quality with minimal odor during printing.
Which 3D printer can print PolyLite™ ABS?
Depending on the size of the models you are trying to print, PolyLite™ ABS can required enclosed 3D printer, or even actively heated chamber.
In general a non-enclosed 3D printer with 90°C bed temperature and 260°C printing temperature can handle models smaller than fist size. For bigger prints you will required an enclosed 3D printer (~40-50°C), for models bigger than ~15-20cm in any direction, it will require an actively heated chamber (~70°C+).
Using proper bed adhesion can also help printing larger parts without deformation/warping issue.
We can recommend Magigoo or BuildTak as adhesive and bed surface options.
Can PolyLite™ ABS be post-processed with Acetone?
Yes, PolyLite™ ABS can be smoothed with acetone.
WARNING: Acetone is a dangerous chemical, please handle it with the necessary safety precautions.
We recommend PolySmooth™ as a safer alternative to create smooth parts.
