Super-Brittle ABS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Super-Brittle ABS

I recently opened a ~6 month old reel of Pearl Gold ABS and found it to be brittle.  So brittle that any bending whatsoever caused it to snap.  Think dry spaghetti out of the box.  Needless to say trying to print it caused several problems, it was cracking as it went through the feeder and the print quality was pretty horrible. 

 

Has anyone else seen this kind of behavior on ABS? 

 

Thanks

Jeff
