Polymaker PolyLite ABS - Black
Durable and Versatile
PolyLite™ ABS is made with a specialty bulk-polymerized ABS resin, which has significantly lower volatile content compared to traditional ABS resins. It delivers excellent printing quality with minimal odor during printing.

Which 3D printer can print PolyLite™ ABS?
Depending on the size of the models you are trying to print, PolyLite™ ABS can required enclosed 3D printer, or even actively heated chamber.
In general a non-enclosed 3D printer with 90˚C bed temperature and 260˚C printing temperature can handle models smaller than fist size. For bigger prints you will required an enclosed 3D printer (~40-50˚C), for models bigger than ~15-20cm in any direction, it will require an actively heated chamber (~70˚C+).
Using proper bed adhesion can also help printing larger parts without deformation/warping issue. We can recommend Magigoo as adhesive and bed surface options.
Can PolyLite™ ABS be post-processed with Acetone?
Yes, PolyLite™ ABS can be smoothed with acetone.
WARNING: Acetone is a dangerous chemical, please handle it with the necessary safety precautions.
We recommend PolySmooth as a safer alternative to create smooth surface models.
