ESD safe PC+ABS

3D printer filament

Edition Number :
20190721
Edition Date :
July 21, 2019
  • Print Temperature = 260-285°C
  • Print Speed = 20-60 mm/s
  • Bed Adhesion = PVP based glue or a polycarbonate/PC+ABS specific type commercial adhesive (e.g. Magigoo PC) on glass or carbon fiber
  • Bed Temperature = ideally heated up to 110°C (use an enclosed chamber if possible)
  • Fan Settings = off to low

Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker 3 extended, an Ultimaker S5 and a Bondtech modified Intamsys HT Pro printer.
