Material Overview

ASA (Acrylic Styrene Acrylonitrile) is a commonly used thermoplastic similar to ABS, but offers superior UV resistance, mechanical properties and aesthetics. ASA is ideal for outdoor applications and is frequently used in, automotive and marine industries where parts are exposed to adverse weather conditions. ASA is highly resistant to UV rays and and not susceptible to yellowing or degrading over time from exposure.

Forge Labs uses ASA by Stratasys which offers a wide variety of colour options and improved aesthetics over  ABS plastic. Parts are produced on the Stratasys Fortus series printers, offering excellent tolerances, finish and repeatability.

The text element is intended for longform copy that could potentially include multiple paragraphs.
