  • Electrical housings and brackets to automotive prototypes,

A UV-Stable, Production-Grade Thermoplastic for Stratasys Fortus 3D Production Systems. ASA combines mechanical strength and UV stability with the best part aesthetics FDM technology has to offer. Build enduring prototypes to test fit, form and function – or produce practical end-use parts for outdoor use. From electrical housings and brackets to automotive prototypes, ASA will give your designs a place in the sun.

ASA works with soluble support materials for easy, hands-free removal and can be used on all Production Series Performance 3D Printers

ASA vs. ABS

Offering a variety of production-grade thermoplastics, FDM® technology creates parts that are highly accurate, tough and suitable for both functional prototyping and end-use parts.

ABS is the most common material used as it boasts good mechanical properties and high name recognition. Compared with ASA, ABS may be more familiar because of its popularity in mass production. ASA is a thermoplastic, poised to become the most popular all-purpose prototyping material for operators of Fortus® 360mc™, 400mc™ and 900mc™ 3D Production Systems. ASA matches or exceeds the mechanical properties of standard ABS and has greater heat resistance. Moreover, ASA demonstrates exceptional UV stability and, with its matte finish, offers the best aesthetics of any FDM thermoplastic. It’s especially suited for end-use parts in outdoor commercial and infrastructure applications
