Fiberlogy ASA is often referred to as the successor to ABS. Due to its exceptional resistance to UV radiation, high temperatures (up to 94°C) and humidity, it is perfect for printing models exposed to long-term weather conditions. At the same time, the material is very durable and simple to print.
Due to the fact that ASA is characterized by low shrinkage, high adhesion and less emission of unpleasant odours compared to ABS, it can be used in printers that are not fitted with a heated chamber.

How to print?
The following parameters are only suggested print settings for this material. To ensure the best print quality, it is necessary to choose the appropriate settings for a specific printer and printing conditions.
|Closed chamber||not required|
|Printing Speed||< 100 mm/s|
|Surface||glass, kapton tape, ABS juice|
|Retraction (direct)||yes, 1-2 mm|
|Retraction (bowden)||yes, 4-6 mm|
|Retraction Speed||20-45 mm/s|
|Drying conditions||80°C / 4h|
|Notes||When printing without a heated chamber, it is recommended to avoid exposing the model to gusts of wind/drafts|
|Print Surface||Material Properties||Bed Temp||Adhesives / Release Agents|
|Glass / Borosilicate Glass||Poor Adhesion||90°C – 110°C||Magigoo Original recommended|
|Ceramic Glass||Poor Adhesion||90°C – 110°C||Magigoo Original recommended|
|Textured PEI Glass||Good adhesion||90°C – 110°C||Magigoo Original recommended|
|Smooth PEI Spring Steel Sheet||Poor Adhesion||90°C – 110°C||Magigoo Original recommended|
|Textured PEI Spring Steel Sheet||Good adhesion||90°C – 110°C||Magigoo Original recommended|
ASA and ABS can be smoothed with acetone vapor to provide a very smooth finish.
If ASA or ABS welds to your bed, you can use acetone to melt it off provided your print surface can take acetone.
