colorFabb Lightweight ASA (LW-ASA) material is capable of increasing its volume nearly 2.5 times. The filament density is close to 1.07 g/cm3 but when foamed at its maximum capacity users will achieve part density close to 0.43 g/cm3.After printing the LW-ASA Black will turn slightly lighter shade of black. When foamed the surface finish will also turn matte, which gives a very professional looking result. Due to higher temperature resistance of LW-ASA, you don’t need to worry about heat absorption.
LW-ASA is more susceptible to warping compared to LW-PLA type filament. Especially models with a large footprint can shrink and warp during printing, but compared to ABS in most cases less severe.
Tip! Apart from using a large brim and heated build plate of 90-100°C (or higher if your machine is capable), you can also try the following:
Print a tall skirt around your model to reduce cold air flow around the printed model or print inside an enclosure for better control of the environment temperature.
- Light weight
- UV resistant
- High temperature resistant
Please note that colour variations may occur with colorFabb LW-ASA. Colour will turn lighter when material is at maximum foamed state as opposed to non-foamed state which shows a deeper and richer colour.
COLORFABB SPECIAL FILAMENTS
Innovation never stops at colorFabb. Our ever expanding range of special filaments have been industry leading for years. Some of them are for aesthetic purposes, others are pure functionality or for specific niche applications. Materials like woodFill, bronzeFill, XT-CF20, LW-PLA, varioShore TPU and DPA-100 support filament were developed in-house and have been successes ever since. By listening to our customers’ needs and forging strategic partnerships with material OEMs we are able to innovate continuously and bring FDM/FFF 3D printing to the next level.

Within minutes of production, colorFabb 3d printing filament is sealed airtight with a double barrier foil. Filament spools are then packed in a cardboard box for further protection. colorFabb 3d printing filament is fresh and ready for 3d printing right out of the box.
