MakerBot Precision ASA
MakerBot Precision ASA for the Method X
MakerBot Precision ASA is a weather-resistant alternative to ABS widely used for functional prototypes and end-use parts in demanding outdoor environments. This thermoplastic formulation has properties similar to MakerBot real ABS, but with better UV and chemical resistance for retaining gloss, colour and mechanical properties when exposed to the elements. ASA combines the qualities of ABS with the added benefit of UV resistance and additional moisture resistance making it ideal for equipment exposed to sunlight and rain over long periods of time – such as products for the agriculture, transportation, and power and utility industries.
*This filament is currently only available in BLACK and only for use in the MakerBot Method X. The Estimated ship date for this filament is December 16th.
