White ABS 3D printer filament in 1.75mm or 3mm is for sale by 3D Printer Pro in 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools. White ABS filament makes a great base color for painting and finishing. It’s a versatile thermoplastic; serving both artists and engineers alike for sculptures, design models, or prototypes. 1.75mm or 3mm ABS filament in white offers the flexibility and durability to accomplish any project.
White Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) has a long history of industrial use. Well known for its high impact resistance and toughness, it’s popular in commercial and engineering applications. It’s found in piping, automotive parts, LEGO toys, appliances, and more. Since it has a higher temperature resistance than PLA, it’s more prone to warping during 3D printing. This is why a heated build surface is crucial for dimensional accuracy.
Extrusion Temperature Range: 220 oC – 260 oC
Storage Requirements: Store in an airtight container or bag at room temperature. ABS will absorb moisture; thereby affecting the dimensional tolerances of your 3D printer filament. Use airtight storage containers, buckets, or zip lock bags to keep the material free from humidity.
Compatibility: Our 1.75mm and 3mm white Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene filament for sale is inspected, tested, and confirmed to work with all FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) printers. This includes popular brands such as Printrbot, Ultimaker, Afnia, Up!, Type A Machines, Solidoodle, Flashforge, Airwolf3D, Makergear, RepRap, and Makerbot (Replicator and Replicator 2).
3D Printing Helpful Hint: Consider surface treating your object first when painting over ABS. Steel wool is a great tool for roughing up the surface for better paint adhesion. Another technique is to use ABS primer/cleaner found at local hardware stores. Vinegar can also be used as a surface treatment.
Color Fact: Early scientists wore beige lab coats. White lab coats were not used until the late 19th century. The color was chosen to represent hope and healing.
