Nanovia ABS AF : Aramid fibre reinforced

7,15 182,90  exl. VAT

Nanovia ABS AF, is an aramid fibre reinforced FFF filament suited for the creation of non-conductive, shock resistant parts that are able to withstand temperatures up to 100 °C. The less abrasive and lighter aramid fibres, compared to both carbon and glass fibres, improve the material’s mechanical properties and facilitate the printing process by reducing the warping phenomenon common with ABS.

Create aramid fibre reinforced 3D prints that are lighter, more resistant, and easier to print compared to native ABS, thank to Nanovia ABS AF.

Specifically develloped for additive manufacturing, the population and length of the aramid fibers in this acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) based composite filament is suited for most standard 3D printers.

Thanks to the aramid fibers Nanovia ABS AF allows for excellent 3D printing properties with limited warping and a great bed adhesion.

Advantages:

  • Lighter prints compared to native ABS
  • Higher mechanical resistances compared to native ABS
  • Low warping when printing (even less than with carbon fiber composites)
  • Increased resistance to friction and shocks
  • A less abrasive fiber compared to carbon and glass
  • Can be smoothed with acetone

Application recommendations

Storage

  • Store Nanovia ABS AF in a dry and dark location, if possible with a desiccant.
  • In order to guarantee good printing conditions dehydrate Nanovia ABS AF at 60 °C for 4 hours or longer, when the spools has been exposed to moisture for an extended period.

Printing

With it’s printing settings close to standard, the Nanovia ABS AF filament can be used on most commercially available 3D printers.

  • Extrusion temperature : between 240 and 260 °C
  • Heated bed temperature : between 100 and 110 °C
  • Enclosure temperature : 90 °C
  • In order to protect your equipment we recommend using a nozzle adapted for abrasive materials.

Post treatment

  • For an outdoor usage, we recommend that you paint your print or submit them to an anti UV treatment, such as our Nanovia smoothing solution. Aramdid fibers and ABS are sensitive to UV radiation.

Health and safety

Printing

  • We recommend printing Nanovia ABS AF in a room equipped with air extraction or by using appropriate breathing equipment. Whilst printing ABS produces a VOC derivative of styrene.

Post treatment

  • We recommend wearing standard safety equipment during the post treatment of your prints made with Nanovia ABS AF.

Certifications

  • Certification RoHS Nanovia ABS AF : Nanovia ABS af certified RoHS compliant
