Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) - ASA

Description

ASA, which stands for Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate, is a thermoplastic material commonly used in additive manufacturing. It is known for its excellent mechanical properties, making it a popular choice for producing high-quality parts that require durability and strength. ASA also boasts impressive UV stability, which means it can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without degrading or becoming brittle. Additionally, ASA can be easily colored to achieve a wide range of aesthetic effects, making it a versatile material for various applications.
