  • Our ABS Ultra Durable exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a hard as nails, ultra tough material that’s not brittle & just a tiny bit flexible. In fact, it’s our new favourite 3D printing material.
  • Finish quality and tactile feel is excellent, similar to ASA. And as usual, layer adhesion isn’t something you ever need to worry about with rigid.ink filaments, let alone ABS Ultra Durable. It’s the perfect match for end-use applications that will really take a hammering.
  • As this is a high grade of ABS that’s a chemically bonded blend with Nylon (not just a composite) you’ll find it has increased chemical resistance and a lower friction coefficient than our standard ABS.
  • If you’ve ever come back to a long print that’s failed, you’ll know that’s a frustration you don’t want to experience again. Poor quality filaments use poor quality resins, often hiding contaminants that will block your nozzle. We use pure, high grade resins ensuring perfect printing reliability. Every. Single. Time.
  • It’s not just rigid.ink filament quality that’s well renowned. Our friendly, efficient and knowledgeable technical customer support staff are on hand to get you back on track should any issues arise with either your order, or your prints. Your rigid.ink comes with a relaxed 60 day guarantee that won’t ever let you down.

Description

Say Hello to ABS Ultra Durable 

Our ABS Ultra Durable is an ABS & Nylon chemical blend (not just a composite) that will really take a hammering. 

This is the perfect end-use part material, where you need all the ultra durable properties of Nylon, but with harder, stiffer qualities to your finished part, like ABS.

ABS Ultra Durable is an extremely versatile printing material. It’s chemical makeup ensures a strong resistance to scratches and impacts, while resiliently maintaining its form without being brittle. That means it’s ideal for tough outer casings or snap-fit style connectors where a little flexibility is required. It’s also resistant to acetone, if you were wondering.

While offering several similar properties to Nylon, such as excellent chemical resistance, extreme durability, scratch resistance and a desirable tactile feel, you’ll also notice a significant cost saving. Nylon 12 is just over £70 per KG, whereas it’s stiffer cousin, our ABS Ultra Durable is just £46.96/KG.

 

You’ll notice a very crisp, particularly high grade of finish quality, similar to that of our ASA or PLA filament. This alone will save you time, meaning you’re less likely to need to carry out any post print finishing, such as sanding or drilling. But if you do, you’ll be relieved to know ABS Ultra Durable is easily worked with if required.

With a density of 1.08g/cm3, it’s just slightly more dense than Nylon or ABS, but this is a minor trade off. It’s not difficult to print, either - so don’t be put off if you’ve not tried Nylon or had success with other brands of ABS before. With the right bed adhesion (we recommend Wolfbite Nitro) it will print nicely at around 255-265C with a 80C heated bed. Or a 100-110C heated bed if using anything other than Wolfbite Nitro.


We know a thing or two about making good filament. That’s because we understand the importance of using seriously good filament. It saves you time, relieving your frustration and allows you to complete the print right, every time. That’s our guarantee; perfect finishes, 100% reliably.


And in the rare instance you do have any issues, our knowledgeable and patient technical support staff are on hand to guide you through any settings adjustments, returns or refunds you may need – all without any hassle. We know that you value your time, and we don’t waste it trying to make things difficult for you after the sale.


So what are you waiting for? Order a sample or a spool of ABS Ultra Durable today and see what all the fuss is about. You’ve got nothing to lose, our world renowned customer support won’t let you down.
