ABS-M30 for Fortus 3D Production Systems

ABS-M30 is up to 25-70 percent stronger than standard Stratasys ABS and is an ideal material for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use-parts. ABS-M30 has greater tensile, impact, and flexural strength than standard ABS. Layer bonding is significantly stronger than that of standard ABS, for a more durable part. This results in more realistic functional tests and higher quality parts for end use. When combined with a Fortus® 3D Production System, ABS-M30 gives you Real PartsTM that are stronger, smoother, and with better feature detail.

The information presented are typical values intended for reference and comparison purposes only. They should not be used for design specifications or quality control purposes. End-use material performance can be impacted (+/-) by, but not limited to, part design, end-use conditions, test conditions, etc. Actual values will vary with build conditions. Tested parts were built on Fortus 400mc @ 0.010″ (0.254 mm) slice. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.

1 Build orientation is on side long edge.
2 Literature value unless otherwise noted.
3 Due to amorphous nature, material does not display a melting point.
4 All electrical property values were generated from the average of test plaques built with default part density (solid). Test plaques were 4.0 x 4.0 x 0.1 inches (102 x 102 x 2.5 mm) and were built both in the flat and vertical orientation. The range
of values is mostly the result of the difference in properties of test plaques built in the flat vs. vertical orientation.
