Within our professional ABSpro™ engineering filament range we now offer a revolutionary flame retardant variant called “ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black”.
ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black is a new halogen free self-extinguishing filament which is engineered to meet the UL 94 V-0 flammability standards, meaning that the vertical burning of the filament, or 3D printed object, stops within 10 seconds.
The mixture used for our ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black compound contains a high percentage of PolyCarbonate, ABS and added halogen-free flame retardant modifiers. Even though the compound contains a high percentage of PolyCarbonate, the flame retardant modifiers allows the filament to be printed at relatively low temperatures.
ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black has a superb interlayer adhesion and allows you to 3D print self-extinguishing objects with a very high gloss and in remarkable fine detail.
ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black requires a printing temperature of 240-270°C. When printing with ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black we recommend you to set your print bed temperature to 100 -110°C. Using an adhesive spray like DimaFix will allow you to 3D print ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black directly on your glass plate, or on Kapton- or PET tape. You can also try using a strong adhesive slurry like ABS juice. Optimal print results can be obtained when keeping the ambient temperature at constant levels.
ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black has an excellent roundness and very tight diameter tolerances, which makes this filament a perfect match with all common desktop 3D printers. ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black is especially developed for FDM/FFF technology based 3D printers and will basically work with any desktop 3D printer.
Our ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black does not contain any hazardous, or chemical substances. In fact, our ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant Black filament is RoHS certified and REACH compliant.

General Tips & Tricks for printing with ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant filament:
It is recommended to have your print bed temperature set to its maximum temperature 110-120°C (or higher) when printing with ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant.
In order to obtain a good first layer adhesion it is recommended to prepare your print bed with adhesive slurries like ABS juice, or with an adhesive spray like DimaFix.
It is important that your print bed levelled and clean. A really tight levelling of the print bed to the nozzle ensures a very good first layer adhesion with ABSpro™ - Flame Retardant.
If possible try to create a controlled temperature area/box for your 3D printer to avoid temperature fluctuations having a negative effect on your 3D print.
