The ABS brake system does not require major maintenance in normal driving. However, we must take special care to avoid brake system failures. Here are some recommendations to keep your system working in optimal conditions.

The user manuals of our ABS motorcycles specify when you should change the brake fluid. With time and conditions of use, this fluid tends to degrade in its properties, therefore, not changing it at the indicated time can cause problems in some components of the ABS system.

The ABS system bases its operation on the information from the motorcycle’s speed sensors, which are those rings with a kind of “little windows” that you find on the wheels (known as rotors). In the presence of dirt or an obstruction, it is possible that the ECU misinterprets the data and disables the ABS.

How long does it take for organic waste to degrade?

As man does not live by news alone, we have decided to incorporate to our publication a line of more technical articles, perhaps somewhat cumbersome for those who only seek general information about 3D printing, but certainly very practical for those who are already immersed in this world and seek to deepen to another level.

To start this new line of articles, nothing better than talking about the liquid element, the ABS, and is that much of the 3d printers, almost all home or semi-professional use, use this printing material.

ABS is considered an amorphous thermoplastic. A thermoplastic is a plastic that, when exposed to relatively high temperatures, becomes deformable or flexible and even melts, while when sufficiently cooled, it hardens.

Each of the three building blocks provides different characteristics. Acrolonitrile provides rigidity, resistance to chemical attack, toughness and stability at high temperatures. Butadiene, toughness at particularly low temperatures and impact resistance; and styrene, mechanical strength, stiffness, gloss, hardness.

How long it takes for metal to degrade

To define the times that are acceptable from those that are not, ISO 14885 (also called EN 13432) was defined. This standard establishes the Biodegradability under controlled composting conditions. The level of decomposition must be more than 90% and must be achieved within a period not exceeding 6 months.

The company ALGIX has on the market several filaments made with algae as raw material. They assure that they only use harmful algae, so using their filament is doubly good for the planet. In order to give consistency to the filament they must mix this sea product with PLA. Unfortunately, they do not indicate how much of each material they use.

They guarantee that the manufacture of their filament follows the strictest quality controls and that the precision tolerance in the thickness of the filament is maximum. All this to ensure that their filament will not clog the nozzles and other delicate parts of our printers.

They explain that their material is flexible and resistant to cold and heat.  To demonstrate the quality of their production process, they quote a third company that actually manufactures the product according to their specifications.

Abs melting temperature plastic

Being biodegradable, this thermoplastic polyester slowly decomposes into simpler molecules when it comes into contact with compounds such as water or carbon oxides. This ensures a natural reinsertion throughout its life cycle, unlike hydrocarbon-derived plastics such as ABS.

The ease of access to the raw material for obtaining PLA (starch) means that each region can have its own source of starch due to its geographical crops, whereas hydrocarbon-derived polymers must have an external supply of this type of raw material. It was included in the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) list of plastics for its applications in the field of biomedicine and food.

When printing PLA, we can see that it is a plastic that is easier to print than others. We can print it with an extrusion temperature of 210ºC. As for the configuration of the printing base, we have several options with this material:
