PolyLite is a family of 3D printing filaments made with the best raw materials to deliver exceptional quality and reliability. PolyLite™ covers the most popular 3D printing materials to meet your everyday needs in design and prototyping.
PolyLite ASA is an alternative to ABS with an improved weather resistance. Its UV resistance and excellent mechanical properties make it the perfect choice for real life application.
Differences between ASA and ABS
ASA is almost exactly the same as ABS with 1 major difference and 1 minor difference:
The major difference is ASA is extremely good at weather resistance. (Resistance to UV light and environmental stress cracking)
The minor difference is ASA prints with a nicer matte finish slightly hiding the layer lines.
Does PolyLite ASA requires an enclosed 3D printer?
Yes and no, you can watch the reviews below for more information but the rule of thumb is the bigger your print (more than the size of your fist) the more the enclosure will be required for dimensional stability.
