ASA, or acrylonitrile styrene acrylate, is an antistatic engineering thermoplastic highly resistant to UV rays and water, with exceptional chemical resistance. That added to its high impact resistance, durability and good surface finish make it the best option to make final parts for machinery or durable prototypes to use outdoors in the open, since they will maintain their shape and color over time.
ASA filament is more water resistant and stiffer than ABS, and it can also be treated with acetone to improve its finish and use HIPS as a support material. Still, like ABS, its temperature must be controlled to avoid deformations during printing
It requires a heatbed.
The use of lacquers for 3D printing is recommended.
