3D Printer Filaments

ABS filament colors 1kg/spool Reprap 3D printer

ABS is commonly used in 3D printing, has the following characteristics:

(1) High strength, good toughness;
(2) Density is small, when printing larger volume model lighter, save money;
(3) Cost-effective, can be processed in wide range temperature;
(4) Softer than PLA;
(5) Diameter of 3.0/1.75mm, variations + /-0.1mm, roundness + /- 0.05mm;
(6) 1 kg /plastic spool packaging;
(7) To be applied to a variety of 3D printer, Makerbot, Mendel, Prusa, Huxley, BFB series, etc…

Our ABS Filament:

ABS-1.75mm ABS3.0mm ABS-clear
Naturalcolor Milk white Milky yellow Clear
Processing temperature 185deg for 3mm,230 deg for 1.75mm, very good process at 260 deg 230 degfor3mm>230 deg for 1.75mm, can process at 260 deg 230 deg for 3mm>230 deg for 1.75mm, can process at 260 deg
Odor Low smoke,tasteless, good for printing indoor White smoke, concentrated flavor,not very good for indoor Strong smell,not good printing indoor
Roundness +/-0.05mm +/-0.05mm +/-0.05mm
Variety                     +/-0.1mm                        +/-0.1mm +/-0.1mm
Water absorption Very low, no bubbles occur when printing even expose to air for over half a year High, exposed to air for a period( like some days or shorter time) much bubbles printing at high temperature after the filament opened from seal packaging High ,easily absorb moisture, much bubbles when printing after expose to air for a short time
Surface gloss Normal Good Good
Strength,hardness Low,easily white dot when bending Strong,no white dot when bending Low,sometime white dot occur when bending
Stick to layer within layer very good Normal Good
Stick to heat bed,heat bed 110 deg Normal Good Very good

Available colors:

Clear, natural, white, black, red, sky blue, dark blue, florescent green, dark green, florescent yellow, dark yellow, orange, purple, pink, grey, brown, glow in dark etc…

PLA filament colors 1kg/spool Reprap 3D Printer

Relative to the ABS, PLA has the following advantages:

(1) PLA’s processing temperature is low, can be processed at 185 degrees;
(2) Odor harmless, good smell like fried corn;
(3) High strength, high stiffness, suitable for DIY players do duplicate printer components;
(4) Forming performance is excellent, thermoforming dimensional stability, low shrinkage (0.3%), layers stick each other well;
(5) Brightly colored, translucent color.

Our PLA filament advantages compared to other PLA filament:

PLA (semi-transparent) PLA full transparent
Type Toughness modify, better flowing Brittle, hard
Processing temperature 3 mm at 185 deg,1.75 mm at 210 deg 210 deg
Odor No smoke, taste like fried corn No smoke, taste like fried corn
Diameter Variations +/-0.1mm +/-0.1mm
Roundness +/-0.03mm +/-0.02~0.05mm
Water absorption Normal Normal
Surface gloss Good Good
Toughness Good no break when bending Good no break when bending

Available colors:

Clear, natural, white, black, red, sky blue, dark blue, florescent green, dark green, florescent yellow, dark yellow, orange, purple, pink, grey, brown, glow in dark, etc…
