ABS H.I. Smartfil filament (High Impact) of 1.75mm or 2,85mm is an improved ABS Smartfil aimed at obtaining an even more impact resistant ABS. In fact, ABS H.I. Smartfil (1.75mm or 2,85mm) is 40% stronger than ABS Smartfil.
This material has been developed specifically for industrial applications such as printing with high mechanical performance parts (parts that will withstand high mechanical stresses).
In addition ABS H.I. Smartfil filament (High Impact) is additive to reduce the effect warping and cracking. The warping effect occurs due to the shrinkage of the plastic as it cools affecting the first layer of the piece off of the printer dock. cracking and warping effect is similar to but in the intermediate layers.
ABS is one of the most commonly used materials in 3D printing. It noted for its strength, toughness and rigidity and not being biodegradable as the PLA. One of the weaknesses of the ABS is suffering with exposure to UV rays, so that the ASA has emerged as an evolution of ABS materials to alleviate this weakness of ABS.
There is now a material such as HIPS noted for its high impact resistance, hence its name "High Impact Polystyrene". While the ABS H.I Smartfil (1.75mm or 2,85mm) exceeds the impact resistance properties of HIPS itself and the surface hardness slightly. As advantages of ABS H.I Smartfil against HiPS filament note that is a ABS additivated and its resistance against HIPS but has a greater definition of surface finish, greater insulation and higher chemical resistance.
