The Raise Premium ASA filament is the perfect solution for any 3D printing enthusiast who wants to ensure quality prints by staying entirely within the Raise3D eco-system. Premium ASA exhibits significantly more UV light and weather resistance than ABS, making it the better choice for applications or printed parts where exposure to UV light is a factor or parts are expected to perform after extended amounts of time outdoors. While structurally very similar, ASA can boast slightly better mechanical properties than ABS but also comes with a slightly higher cost and in many cases, the two are interchangeable in purpose.

Acrylic Styrene-Acrylonitrile, or ASA is an amorphous, opaque thermoplastic that is structurally very similar to ABS. While ASA boasts slightly better mechanical properties and exhibits significantly more UV light and weather resistance than ABS, the two have very similar applications in the prototyping phase of product development and is also a great choice for later phase function and part assembly testing.
