ESD safe Polycarbonate
3D printer filament

ESD safe Polycarbonate

3D printer filament

Edition Number :
20190617
Edition Date :
June 17, 2019

For customers requiring Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) safe protection in applications requiring high strength, impact resistance and good temperature resistance, ESD safe Polycarbonate 3D printer filament is an ideal material.

Benefits
  • Amorphous thermoplastic
  • Strong and tough engineering thermoplastic
  • High impact strength
  • Good temperature resistance
  • ESD safe
  • Improved lubricity
  • Aesthetically pleasing colors and effects

Applications*
  • Parts requiring ESD safe protection that require toughness, durability and good temperature resistance

*Subject to detailed product specifications.

Color Range
Standard

  • Natural (black)
  • Print Temperature = 260-300°C
  • Print Speed = 20-40 mm/s
  • Bed Adhesion = PET or Polyimide tape surface coated with a thin layer of EVA or PVP glue or directly onto a Polyethylenimine (PEI) surface
  • Bed Temperature = ideally heated up to 110-130°C
  • Fan Settings = off to low

Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker S5, a Bondtech modified Intamsys FunMat HT and a 3ntr A4 V2 printer.
