My Engineering department is asking me about the possibility of using ABS 3-D printer material on floor.....specifically over production lines in automation equipment.  Does anyone have any experience with this, how I would document it or if I should suggest they use a different material?  I would greatly appreciate some advice.

I know what ABS 3-D Printer Material is, however I am not clear on what you are asking.

@SQFconsultant - is this material safe to use over our production lines?  We are producing primary packaging.  If it is okay, does it need to be included in our Glass and Brittle Plastics list?  I appreciate your help.

I don't know what it is.

 

For non-slip around glass bottling production ?

In answer to your question Heidi - I would say YES, however I don't remember you indicating what it is made out of.

We product thin-walled flexible thermoformed plastic containers.  Our Engineering department has developed 3D printed cups for their automation to pick up the parts off the conveyor to move them to packaging.  They wanted to know if this material needed to be added to our Glass and Brittle Plastics register.  I am unfamiliar with the ABS material they are using for the automation cups.  I just want to add them to my register if they need to be.  Thank you.

From my perspective, a lot of stuff that I have/would have printed in ABS due to the properties that I need from ABS have been printed in PETG, PP, ASA, or nylons.
 
Anything that can be used to keep lenses close to someone's face won't need ABS's properties, which PLA and PETG lack.
(These include a softening point of +100°C, higher rigidity, large amounts, and smootheability with acetone vapours.)
 
And I'd print it with ABS if one of my printers (all in one wide format printer) already had it.
If you're free to choose your own content, I wouldn't recommend ABS.
