The sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects can cause harm to sensitive parts such as electronics, affect magnetic media and potentially cause fires. To protect against this, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) safe materials are often used to hold sensitive parts. ESD grade materials are polymers that are not insulating but actually conduct. Clariant provides a series of ESD safe materials that are based on unique fillers and optimized for material extrusion type printing. PET-G, PC+ABS, polycarbonate and polyamide based ESD options are available to address varied ESD safe needs such as ease of printing, higher impact strength and material flexibility.
  • Strong and tough engineering thermoplastic
  • Good impact strength
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Reduced thermo-oxidative degradation
  • ESD safe

  • Tools, jigs, fixtures
  • Parts requiring ESD safety

*Subject to detailed product specifications.

Color Range

  • Natural (black)
  • Print Temperature = 240-260°C
  • Print Speed = 30-60 mm/s
  • Bed Adhesion = a generous uniform layer of a PVP based glue, use of a commercial adhesion sheet or commercial bed adhesive
  • Bed Temperature = ideally heated up to 70-80°C
  • Fan Settings = medium to high

Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker 3 extended and an Ultimaker S5.
