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 applications.
UV Resistant - With excellent weather resistance (UV, water and heat) PolyLite™ ASA is the ideal choice for printing parts that must survive in the harsh outdoors. Most plastics tend to become brittle and their colour turns yellow when exposed to UV radiation or sunshine but with PolyLite™ ASA the appearance and mechanical properties of your 3D prints are not influenced negatively by UV light.
Water Resistant - PolyLite™ ASA is resistant to Environmental Stress Cracking (ESC). This allows printed parts to face the outdoors, high humidity and rain over long periods of time.
ABS Alternative - PolyLite™ ASA performs better in both thermal and mechanical properties compared with general ABS filaments. It also features a Vicat softening temperature of 105Ԩ which slightly exceeds ABS.
Excellent Printing Quality - PolyLite™ ASA prints parts with a beautiful matte surface finish, suitable for printing production parts. Made with only the highest quality materials, PolyLite™ ASA delivers excellent printing quality and reliability.
Uncompromised Quality - With Polymaker's industry leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that PolyLite™ ASA will produce beautiful, reliable and accurate printed parts.
