ABS for high speed prints, excellent surface finish and great dimensional stability.

Essentium offers innovative solutions that drive the use of 3D printing for various applications across industries. Apart from the advanced high-speed HSE 3D printers, Essentium has a rich portfolio of high-end filaments for specialized applications in demanding environments such as aerospace, defence, industrial, biomedical or automotive. Once of those Essentium materials is the ABS MG94 filament developed in collaboration with Sabic.

ABS MG94 was developed from premium grade ABS and designed especially for high speed prints. ABS MG94 produces parts that stand out with their excellent surface finish and balanced properties, such as excellent impact resistance, toughness, good ductility and good electrical performance. Parts 3D printed with ABS MG94 will preserve those qualities and dimensional stability even at high temperatures and in chemically hostile environments, which is the typical behavior of ABS.

Another advantage of ABS, also shared by ABS MG94, is its great printability as well as the fact that it can be painted, covered with a thin layer of metal (plated) or even machined without deformation, something unusual in conventional 3D printing materials.

All these features make this material ideal for the 3D printing of economic functional prototypes, equipment enclosures, general purpose jigs and fixtures, and automotive components. With ABS MG94 prototypes and end-use parts can be manufactured fast, on-site and on demand even for one-off components or tools, or for small series.

3D printing with ABS is a little more complex than with PLA. In the case of ABS MG94, it is necessary for the printing base to be hot, between 70 ºC and 80 ºC or 100-110 ºC when the filament is printed on the Essentium HSE equipment. The optimal extruder temperature is 250-270 ºC for standard FDM 3D printing, and it can even reach 420 ºC with the HSE printing technology. The recommended printing speed for ABS MG94 is 40-80 mm/s (50-500 mm/s for HSE) and the best layer fan setting is 25-50 % (0-30 % with HSE). The use of a 3D printer with a closed chamber is highly recommended although not indispensable. For best adhesion, ABS MG94 should be printed on a G-10/FR4 or glass printing surface and Dimafix or Magigoo HT can be used to improve adhesion. Complex structures can be printed with ABS MG94 with the help of soluble support filaments such as High-T-Lay, Chamberlay 100, PolyDissolve S2 or HIPS Ultrafuse.

When 3D printed, the ABS MG94 filament can expose users to styrene, which is why it is absolutely necessary to ensure proper ventilation of the printing area and use adequate protective equipment. ABS MG94 is a hygroscopic material, which means that it absorbs moisture from the air, leading to a decrease in print quality. To keep the filament free of moisture, it is recommended to store the spools with a filament drying capsule or in vacuum packaging. If ABS MG94 absorbs more than 200 ppm of moisture, it should be dried at 80-90˚C for 2-4 hours, for example in the PrintDry Pro filament dryer.

More recommended printing settings can be found in the Technical datasheet in the Downloads section.
