Due to its properties, ABS is a very appropriate material to use for prototyping enclosures for electronic equipment and this filament is no exception. It was specifically designed to provide high-grade protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge) that can damage sensitive electrical components. It can prevent charge from building up on its surface, useful if the printed pieces come into contact with sensitive microelectronics See More
This ABS is tougher than the majority of ABS materials out in the market. Its tensile strength (maximum stretching pressure the material can withstand) is 42 MPa, according to its datasheet. Material property data website MatWeb has stated that the highest-quality ABS withstands at least 40MPa, and 3DXSTAT’s filament goes beyond this value. See More
You can use this filament with pretty much any standard 3D printer, since it's available in the two most commonly used diameters: 1.75 mm and 3.0 mm. Unlike other filaments, 3DXSTAT offers both sizes for the same price (1.75 mm is usually more expensive). See More
The packaging of this filament is outstanding and protects the filament from external factors very well. The product comes packed in a very stylish 3DXSTAT box that, besides protection, gives it a premium feel. The spool itself is sealed in vacuum film with a silica packet. See More
The objets printed with this filament can be subjected to some post-processing. For example, acetone can be used to "weld" multiple ABS parts together, for surface smoothing surface or to create a gloss. The process itself is a bit messy, but there are plenty of tutorials available online. See More
You can find equally decent ABS filaments for half the price of this one. However, getting this more expensive premium ABS filament may buy some peace of mind. But it should be noted that, given that these are simple standard ABS filaments, it's unlikely there will be a major difference between the results obtained when using this one and those obtained with most less expensive alternatives.

As is the case with all ABS filaments, you cannot print this filament using a 3D printer that lacks a heated bed. In order for the first layer to adhere properly, the filament requires high temperatures. Otherwise, it may detach from the bed plate. Kapton tape is also recommended, to improve adhesion. See More
