CCTree is an up and coming affordable, quality 3D printer filament. This range of CCTree ABS filament is consistent and easier to print with than most other brands of ABS, and is ideal as a daily filament for most applications!
ABS or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a copolymer, essentially a blend or alloy of different plastics. It is one of the most common thermoplastics in use today with robust and cheap characteristics. As a 3D printer filament, it's highly versatile and offers better mechanical properties than PLA. It can, however, can be a little more difficult to print with.
Since ABS is a blend of three monomers in variable proportions, the properties can be variable depending on the manufacturer. CCTree has worked hard to produce a blend that is well-suited to 3D printing, and only uses quality non-recycled plastic in production. Many other manufactures will included recycled or regrind plastic in their production, which may not be a major issue using plastic injection, but can create bad quality 3D printing filament.
In order to print ABS successfully, a heated bed is suggested with a PEI, Build Tak or Aluminium print surface. Bed temp's are usually in the 70° - 110°C range for good first layer adhesion. ABS also has a higher shrinkage than other plastics like PLA, and as such tends to warp and crack on larger prints. We highly recommend using an enclosed printer to bring the ambient temperature up, which makes printing with ABS much easier for beginners moving up from PLA!
