ABS-like plastic for 3D printing

ABS is a stable plastic. ABS is used extensively for housings and household equipment. By using stereolithography (SLA), a 3D material can be processed that has ABS-like properties and a nice, smooth (layer-free product surface. 

High quality and surface – to be achieved in single pieces

Where a product needs to be made in single pieces but is too complex to mill or to process with other layering techniques, SLA is the designated method for realising a high quality and surface product. Products are suitable for finishing or for coating to RAL colours, soft touch or even for chroming, with little after-treatment. Because of these properties, this technique is also used at RapidPrototyping.NL, particularly for the creation of a so-called master model for the casting of a silicone mould.
