PolyLite™ is a family of 3D printing filaments made with the best raw materials to deliver exceptional quality and reliability. PolyLite™ covers the most popular 3D printing materials to meet your everyday needs in design and prototyping. PolyLite™ ASA is an alternative to ABS with an improved weather resistance. Its UV resistance and excellent mechanical properties make it the perfect choice for real life applications.
PolyLite ™ ASA Features
UV Resistant - With excellent weather resistance (UV, water and heat) PolyLite™ ASA is the ideal choice for printing parts that must survive in the harsh outdoors. Most plastics tend to become brittle and their colour turns yellow when exposed to UV radiation or sunshine but with PolyLite™ ASA the appearance and mechanical properties of your 3D prints are not influenced negatively by UV light.
Water Resistant - PolyLite™ ASA is resistant to Environmental Stress Cracking (ESC). This allows printed parts to face the outdoors, high humidity and rain over long periods of time.
ABS Alternative - PolyLite™ ASA performs better in both thermal and mechanical properties compared with general ABS filaments. It also features a Vicat softening temperature of 105℃ which slightly exceeds ABS.
Excellent Printing Quality - PolyLite™ ASA prints parts with a beautiful matte surface finish, suitable for printing production parts. Made with only the highest quality materials, PolyLite™ ASA delivers excellent printing quality and reliability.
Uncompromised Quality - With Polymaker's industry leading quality control process and rigorous in-house testing, you can rest assured that PolyLite™ ASA will produce beautiful, reliable and accurate printed parts.

Magigoo Original is an easy to use 3D printing adhesive designed to address 'the first layer not sticking problem'. Magigoo ensures a strong adhesion to the hot plate. But the magic starts when printing is ready: just wait for the plate to cool down and then remove your prints with just a finger flick! Magigoo Original is a 3D printing adhesive for ABS, PLA, PETG, HIPS, TPU & ASA filaments.
Magigoo Original Features
Easy application: Applying Magigoo is as easy as child's play. Shake, press, apply. Spread on an active printing area only. No need to cover the whole surface
Easy-release: Magigoo adhesive properties are designed to release the 3D print once the build plate has cooled.
Easy-clean: Magigoo is easily cleaned with water.
Long-lasting: Magigoo last for 100+ average prints.
Odorless and safe: Magigoo is safe to use - be it in a closed room or educational workshop with kids.

Storage & Drying
MAGIGOO Original is best stored upright, with the cap closed and away from direct sunlight.
Before packaging, PolyLite™ ASA is dried to ensure the best printing quality and filaments are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture.
While not a strict requirement to use PolyLite™ ASA, we recommend that the material be used with the PolyBox™ or a dry cabinet during printing to keep the filament at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less) to prevent moisture absorption which will lower the quality and the mechanical properties of the print.
When not in use PolyLite™ ASA should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag. If the filament does absorb moisture, spools of PolyLite™ ASA can be dried in a preheated convection oven at 80˚C for up to 8 hours. Results may vary depending on the accuracy of your oven so please be conservative. For more information about filament drying please read our user guide.

PolyLite™ ASA has been engineered with compatibility in mind to print excellently on a wide range of professional 3D printers. This material requires a heated bed and we recommend printing with an enclosure or heated chamber for sizeable or thin models.
Of course with thousands of unique 3d printer models on the market, we can't guarantee each filament type will work with every 3D printer.
PolyLite™ ASA FAQ
Q: How does PolyLite™ ASA compare to ABS?
A: Like Polymaker's other products, PolyLite™ ASA is engineered specifically with 3D printing in mind. When compared to ABS, PolyLite™ ASA offers superior performance in almost all mechanical tests. Through their experience developing a series of ASA plastics for one of the worlds largest construction companies; Shanghai Construction Group, Polymaker has mastered the properties, compounding formulas and production techniques of ASA. As a result, PolyLite™ ASA gains several advantages over other ASA filaments:
Q: Can ASA be printed at large scales without warping?
A: A stable high temperature environment is required to print larger ASA parts without warping. Whether a part is susceptible to warping will vary on how the residual stress releases within the parts geometry. Most users print ASA with the heated bed set to 100˚C with an enclosure to passively heat the surrounding environment. This effectively reduces the internal stresses cause warping or cracking. To guarantee that ASA can be printed at any size without warping, 3D printing with a professionally designed heated chamber is required.
Q: What support materials can I use with this product?
A: Polymaker’s PolyDissolve™ S2 filament is the recommended support filament for PolyLite™ ASA. If your 3D printer is not equipped for multi-material, self-support can be used.

Q: How do I apply Magigoo?
A: It is best to apply Magigoo when the printing bed is cool. Before applying, shake the Magigoo pen like you mean it, press down the nib on the printing bed for Magigoo to flow. Spread more or less evenly on the printing area. It is enough to cover your active print area with an even thin layer. DO NOT SQUEEZE the bottle to avoid applicator popping off. Applicator has a valve which is activated once you push on it.
Q: Do I need to apply Magigoo everytime?
A: For good and reliable adhesion we recommend to apply Magigoo every time.
Q: How do I clean my bed after using Magigoo?
A: After your prints have finished and popped off, clean the printing bed by wiping with a damp cloth. Yes, just water is enough.
Q: How long will Magigoo last for?
A: One Magigoo 50ml pen is good for on average 100 prints. There is no firm best before date as it will vary depending on use and storing conditions - Once opened, we recommend to use it in a couple of months.
Q: Will Magigoo work with my existing printing surface?
A: Magigoo was originally formulated with borosilicate glass surfaces in mind however we have also had good success applying Magigoo to surfaces like Buildtak, in these cases Magigoo can work as a release agent for materials which can over-adhere like PET with PEI.
