ASA PRECISION MATERIAL
MakerBot Precision ASA is a weather-resistant 3D printing material designed to provide high-performance functional prototypes and end-use parts in demanding outdoor environments. Different from ABS, ASA has a thermoplastic formulation with a high UV resistance, which helps retain gloss, color and mechanical properties when exposed to outdoor elements. Ideal for demanding applications in the automotive, power and utilities, agriculture, oil & gas and mass transit industries. Compatible with SR-30 dissolvable support material.

Store in the included a vacuum-sealed metalized polyester bag to avoid moisture absorption from air; long-term exposure to humidity can compromise material quality and performance. Make sure the built-in desiccant is in the spool to absorb any moisture exposure during the material loading process.
