ASA


ASA

With exceptional UV stability and the best aesthetics of any FDM thermoplastic, ASA is poised to become the most popular all-purpose prototyping material. Its UV resistance makes it especially suited in end-use parts for outdoor commercial and infrastructure use. And its matte finish makes it ideal for attractive prototypes in consumer sporting goods, tools and automotive components and accessories.
