ClearScent™ ABS is now also available in opaque colours. You are now also able to 3D print opaque coloured ABS objects without warping and having the unpleasant smell of ABS during 3D printing!
Formfutura ClearScent™ ABS Black is a beautiful deep traffic black coloured and 100% opaque filament. 3D printed objects in ClearScent™ ABS Black will have a stunning deep black professional appearance. ClearScent™ABS is nearly warp-free, has an excellent thermal stability and its 3D printing flowing behaviour is fine-tuned for optimal 3D printing results. Above features combined with a superb first- and interlayer adhesion ensure that ClearScent™ ABS printed parts will really look amazing.
ClearScent™ABS has a good chemical resistance and prints really smoothly. ClearScent™ABS is soluble in Acetone , TetraHydroFuran (THF) and other Analogous Solvents. By being soluble in these solvents, ClearScent™ABS printed objects can for instance perfectly be treated with an Acetone vapor smoothing treatment. By giving your ClearScent™ABS printed object an acetone vapor smoothing treatment you will be able to create a really smooth and even more shiny surface. Your FFF/FDM 3D printed object will almost look like an injection molded model.
ClearScent™ABS is available in transparent clear, various vivid semi-transparent colours and now also in opaque colours. ClearScent™ABS can best be printed within a temperature range between 220-260°C. It is recommended to set your heated print bed temperature at approximately 90-100°C.
ClearScent™ABS has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter tolerances, which makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. Printing with ClearScent™ABS 3D printer filament will go very smoothly with basically all FFF/FDM technology based desktop 3D printers.
Our ClearScent™ABS does not contain any hazardous, or chemical substances. In fact, all our ClearScent™ABS filaments are RoHS certified, REACH compliant and even are FDA food and drink contact approved.

General Tips & Tricks for printing with ClearScent™ ABS filament
It is recommended to have your print bed temperature set to approximately 90-100°C when printing with ClearScent™ABS. You may have to adjust the temperature settings of your print bed slightly based on your type of printer.
A very good first layer adhesion is important. In order to obtain a good first layer adhesion it is recommended to prepare your print bed with an adhesive spray like DimaFix, Kapton Tape, PET Tape, and BuildTak™plates.
It is important that your print bed leveled and clean. A really tight leveling of the print bed to the nozzle ensures a very good first layer adhesion with ClearScent™ABS.
