ASA (Acrylonitirle Styrene Acrylate) is a UV-resistant weatherable polymer.   Our ASA has a low-gloss matte finish that makes it a perfect filament for technical prints - especially when you don't want the high-gloss surface finish often associated with many other 3D printing materials such as ABS, PETG, or PLA.  ASA's UV-stability makes it an ideal material for outdoor applications that will experience intense exposure to the sun and weather.  ASA's exceptional mechanical and thermal properties - coupled with excellent UV-stability - is why this resin is used the Auto, Marine, and RV industries for exterior applications such as mirror housings, cowl covers, radiator grills, and sensor housings.
