Digital-ABS – (RGD5160-DM)

ABS is a tough material with a wide range of properties including high impact strength, good scratch resistance and hardness with high gloss.  It also has good mechanical strength and rigidity with good dimensional stability.

There are two main choices for applications that require the properties of ABS – Green ABS (RGD5160-DM) and the Gray range. .  Properties of the RGD5160-DM include Izod notched imnpact of 65-80 Jm, flexural modulus of 1700-2200 MPa and Heat Deflection Temperature of 58-65C on removal from the printer.  82-95C can be achieved after thermal post treatment in a programmable oven.

Properties of the Gray range include Izod notched impact of 22-35 Jm and flexural modulus of 1400-2500 MPa.

This material is ideal for:

  • Functional prototypes
  • Snap-fit parts for high or low temperature usage
  • Electrical parts, casings, mobile phone casings
  • Engine parts and covers
