Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate (ASA)

While you are free to use any brand and type of material you wish on your AON3D machine, we can only provide support for AON3D-approved materials that we have tested and developed processes for in-house, all of which can be purchased from AON3D directly by contacting sales@aon3d.com.

General Process Settings

Setting Value
Extrusion Temperature 250-280ºC
Bed Temperature 95-110ºC
Chamber Temperature 90ºC

Usage Notes

Build Surface Preparation

ASA prints best directly on Kapton tape. Wipe down the build surface with isopropanol before use. Larger prints and geometries especially prone to warping may require the use of Dimafix, an applied adhesion aid. A Dimafix Pen can be purchased from AON3D by contacting sales@aon3d.com.

Filament Drying and Moisture Control

ASA is mildly susceptible to hydration. When necessary, dry at 60-80ºC for 4 hours in a convection oven. When not in use, please store in a sealed package or container with dessicant.

For more information, see the Filament Drying and Moisture Control page.

Support Material

HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) has decent compatibility with ASA as a breakaway support material.
