FDM rapid prototyping material properties

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene copolymer)

physical and chemical properties of ABS:

ABS is synthesized from three chemical units of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene copolymer, and each monomer has different characteristics; Acrylonitrile has high strength, thermal stability and chemical stability; Butadiene has toughness and impact resistance; Styrene is easy to process, high gloss and high strength. In terms of morphology, ABS is an amorphous material. The polymerization of three monomers and plans to build a national base for research and industrial utilization of new graphite materials has produced a terpolymer with two phases, one is the continuous phase of styrene acrylonitrile, the other is the dispersed phase of polybutadiene rubber. This determines the high temperature resistance, impact resistance and easy processing of ABS materials. The shrinkage is 0.5%

all FDM series products offer ABS as an option, and nearly 90% of FDM prototypes are made of this material. Users report that the prototype of ABS can reach 80% of the molding strength of injection molded ABS, and its properties, such as heat resistance and chemical resistance, are also similar or equivalent to injection molded workpieces, with a heat resistance of 93.3 ℃, which makes ABS a widely used material for functional testing

typical uses:

automobile (dashboard, tool boat door, wheel cover, reflector box, etc.), refrigerator, high-strength tools (what are the systems of hair drying electronic universal tension machine? Machine, mixer, food processing machine, lawn mower, etc.), shell, typewriter key plate, Entertainment vehicles (such as golf carts, and jet snow 1. in the state of non reaction to operation, first of all, it is necessary to confirm whether the power supply of the control box is connected correctly to the sled car, etc.)

PC (polycarbonate)

physical and chemical properties of PC:

PC is an amorphous engineering plastic, which has particularly good impact strength, thermal stability, gloss, bacteria inhibition, flame retardancy and pollution resistance. PC also has excellent optical transparency (visible light transmittance greater than 90%), high impact strength, excellent thermal stability, creep resistance, cold resistance, good electrical insulation, flame retardancy and other characteristics. The shrinkage is 0.5-0.7%

PC materials can be used on Titan models. The PC with increased strength can withstand more strength and load than the prototype made of ABS material. Many users believe that the prototype made of PC material can achieve the strength characteristics of injection molded ABS parts, and its heat resistance is 125 ℃

typical uses:

Electrical and commercial equipment (computer components, connectors, etc.), appliances (food processing machines, refrigerator drawers, etc.), transportation industry (vehicle front and rear lights, dashboard, etc.)

typical uses:

many of the above characteristics determine the wide application of ppsf in aerospace, medical, automotive industry, small household appliance design and manufacturing industry and other industries
