Affordable Thermoplastics Available in Six Colours

ABS-M30 is up to 25-70% stronger than standard ABS and is ideal for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and end-use parts. Bring your product to market faster with this strong and affordable material.

Overview

ABS-M30 is a production-grade thermoplastic material made possible with FDM technology providing realistic functional tests results along with smoother parts with finer details.  ABS-M30 has a greater tensile, impact, and flexural strength than standard ABS. With the ability to print in six different colours, this material is the perfect material for 3D printing concept models, moderate-requirement parts including functional prototypes, jigs, fixtures, manufacturing tooling and production parts.
