Please Note: eSun has recently changed their filament spool material. You may receive a cardboard spool, instead of the plastic spools depicted above. This move means a more environmentally friendly design to their 3D filament spools which comfortably sit on your 3D printer's standard spool holder for smooth filament feeding.

ABS is one of the most widely used plastics in the world, and is utilized for a wide range of applications – including Lego Blocks and plastic kitchen utensils. As such, it’s easy to understand why it’s also one of the two most popular types of plastic materials for 3D Printing, competing in favour alongside PLA.

ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene Styrene) is a very durable material making it ideal for printing parts or objects that may be exposed to impacts, moderate to high temperatures and other forces. However, it is known to be trickier to print with in most 3D Printers and may require a 3D Printer Enclosure for larger prints. As such, most resource sites will first recommend PLA Filament before moving onto the more advanced ABS filament.


Advantages of ABS

ABS is a thermoplastic, which means it slowly becomes more liquid-like as it heats up, compared to metals and other materials that suddenly become liquid after reaching certain temperatures. This quality allows the plastic to be controlled more finely, as it can be heated to varying temperatures for varying levels of liquidity – ideal for Fused Deposit Modelling 3D Printing.

Some of the key benefits of ABS Filament, when compared to similar plastic filament, are that it is strong and durable, with mild flexibility and a slow pace of degradation. Due to the higher melting temperature, it also has a far greater resistance to heat and can be utilized for applications with moderate to high temperatures. And while PLA is widely regarded as the easier filament to achieve great results with, such results simply can’t compare to those that one can be achieved with ABS.

While ABS offers a wide range of benefits, it is often regarded as a more difficult material to work with, and many Makers prefer to master the craft of 3D Printing with PLA before moving on to ABS. This shouldn’t dissuade you from the material, however, as it simply requires more trial, error and practice to get right. And if you can get your ABS printing technique mastered, you will certainly enjoy the amazing results that follow.

Just remember that for ABS printing you will need a heated bed and an enclosure to control the temperatures more accurately. Although with so many fantastic benefits when compared to similar plastic materials, these requirements are trivial at most. If you’re interested in trying out 3D Printing with ABS for the first time, you could also consider acquiring a sample pack, which contains 20 different coloured rolls of five meter samples. This way, you can test out the material, see how the different colours look and perhaps find a new favourite colour for all of your 3D Printed parts.

As a final note, whether you are an experienced or beginner 3D Maker, you may also be interested in our ABS+ Range of Filament, which offers a fair range of extra benefits at only a slightly higher cost.

Why Buy Red ABS Filament from Us?

As one of the leaders in 3D Printing innovation, eSUN have garnered the respect of many Makers throughout the world with consistent high quality 3D Printing materials at a surprisingly affordable rate. Founded in as far back as 2002, eSUN has provided 3D Printer materials and OEM services for a decade and half, and have continued to refine their products and techniques, extend their ranges and, ultimately, advance the industry. As engineers who build, use and sell 3D Printers, we can depend on their stringent quality control checks for all of our 3D Printing needs, as their filament is consistent throughout each 330 meter spool, without defects or contaminations of any kind – keeping our prints looking good and our printer parts in good condition.

As one of the leading 3D Printer Filament suppliers in South Africa, we trust eSUN to provide quality filament at affordable rates so that we can pass on the benefits to you. And while we certainly trust the quality control that eSUN adheres to, we also perform our own quality control checks – so that you as an end-user never have to stress. This is also why we offer a money-back guarantee, because we know that eSUN is capable providing excellent quality in each and every spool.

In addition to the above benefits, the following are some excellent reasons why we choose eSUN compared

  • Consistent Temperature Stability – Thanks to the quality control checks and impressive diameter spec’ difference throughout each spool, eSUN’s filament has consistent temperature stability – which generally translates to smoother prints, less extruder clogs and greater control over the printing material.
  • No Recycled or Impure Materials – eSUN only utilizes pure and fresh raw materials and avoids recycled materials, which leads to better consistency, less potential contamination and fewer overall defects.
  • SGS Certified – All the quality control in the world would be rendered almost useless without FDA and ISO9001 compliance. Fortunately, eSUN is certified and practices safe and sustainable business. This translates to safe products that don’t expose Makers to unnecessary harm.
  • Considerate, Clean and Dry Packaging – As any veteran 3D Maker will know, allowing filament to absorb moisture can lead to bubbles, spurts and clogs in the extruder. eSUN are careful to package each spool securely in dry, sealed packaging to keep it in top quality until you need to use it.
  • World-Class Quality Control – As an international company that supplies filament to Makers all around the world, their strict quality control checks ensure excellent consistency in each and every spool. Boasting a tested 0.05mm diameter spec’ difference, eSUN utilize modernized laser-scanners so that no contamination or inconsistency makes it out of the production line.
  • Innovators and Leaders in the Industry – The many years in the 3D Printing industry have allowed eSUN to refine their processes, techniques and materials – as well as design new materials too. A notable part of eSUN’s history is the invention of 3D Printer Cleaning Filament, as well as a few advances in the production of PETG filament.

With these benefits in mind, eSUN was an obvious choice for us. Not only do they offer some of the highest quality filament in the world, but they also offer it at very affordable prices. And with a range as large as theirs – including the eFlexy, eNinja and new eMorph – we are able to provide SA Makers like yourself with a wide range of exciting 3D Printing possibilities.
