3DXTECH’s 3DXSTAT ESD-SAFE specialty 3D printing filaments can be 10^7 to 10^9 ohm surface resistance, and are ideally suited for applications that require ESD-Safe parts. 3DXSTAT series’ PEI filament is specially formulated for precision 3D printing, and is manufactured in the USA. PEI possesses excellent mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties due to its amorphous nature. This 3D printing filament is ideal for applications requiring electrostatic discharge protection, low contamination, and superior thermal and chemical resistance.
Internal studies performed by 3DXTECH indicate that increased extruder temperatures yield higher levels of conductivity in parts printed with 3DXSTAT. Similarly, lower extruder temperatures yield lower levels of conductivity. For example, if the resistivity measurements of your finished 3D printed part is too insulative for your application, try increasing the printing temperature a few degrees for increased conductivity. With a little fine-tuning of your 3D printer’s settings, and a couple of test prints, you can achieve a customized resistivity to suit your needs.
Printing temperature: 360-390°C with an all-metal hotend
Bed temperature: 140-160°C
