High quality 3.00mm Glow in the Dark ABS 3D printer filament (1.0kg / 2.2lbs.)
Make eye catching objects that glow in the dark! The high-performance glow pigments in our glow in the dark ABS filament charge from sunlight, incandescent bulbs, or UV lamps, and give off a bright green or a more subdued blue glow that lasts for a very long time.
Please note: Like most high-performance glow in the dark products, the Strontium-Aluminate glow pigment contained in this filament is abrasive. Using this filament will wear down your nozzle and other extruder components. We offer wear-resistant nozzle replacements that last much longer than regular brass nozzles when printing abrasive filament. This filament should also be printed at a lower temperature than is usual for PLA to obtain the best looking results.
For use on printers equipped with a heated print bed.
A very common thermoplastic polymer, comprised of acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. (Hence ABS)
ABS has a higher mechanical resilience thanks to the butadiene rubber.
ABS will shrink as it cools after extrusion. When printing large parts, this shrinking will cause the printed parts to warp. Increasing the ambient temperature of the printer will reduce the shrinking effect.
When making mechanical parts, especially parts exposed to higher temperatures, ABS offers a great combination of heat resistance and strength compared to PLA.

IMPORTANT USAGE NOTES
Glow-in-the-dark filament contains Strontium Aluminate (SrAl) for its glowing properties. Please note that SrAl is an abrasive and may lead to faster wearing of your printer's nozzle and other components that are in sliding contact with the filament. We continue to offer this product for customers that need to print glow-in-the-dark objects, as we are not aware of any non-abrasive alternatives for producing glow-in-the-dark 3d prints. Customers should use this product with the understanding that extended use of this product may lead to printing problems that require replacing some components (specifically, the extruder, the hot end, and the nozzle). We offer high-lubricity nozzle upgrades with a hard coating that last much longer than regular brass nozzles when printing abrasive filament.
