ESD Safe - ABS

Category: ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Material Information

Name: ESD Safe - ABS
Source: Airwolf 3D
Description:

ESD ABS Carbon Nanotube (CNT) enhanced compounds are used in critical applications that require electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection and a high level of cleanliness. Manufactured with consistency in mind – Production starts with MG-94 Premium ABS (same resin as P430) and then compounded according to a proprietary formulation of multi-wall carbon nanotubes and process / dispersion modifiers – giving you a filament with excellent printing characteristics and consistent ESD properties.

    General Comments

    Characteristics

    • Consistent surface resistivity.
    • Low additive loading rates.
    • Improved retention of impact & elongation.
    • Low particulate contamination.
    • Minimal contribution to outgassing and ionic contamination.

    Applications

    • Semi-con: HDD Components, Wafer Handling, Jigs, Casings, & Connectors.
    • Industrial: Conveying, Metering, and Sensing applications.

     Considerations

    • Some studies have indicated that increased extruder temperatures can achieve higher levels of conductivity. Likewise, lower extruder temperatures have resulted in lower levels of conductivity. Each printer is set-up differently as well as varied part geometry. Therefore, expect some trial time to understand how ESD ABS filament works in your specific printer / application.

    Printing Skill & Experience - Intermediate

    • Enclosed chamber necessary in order to prevent warping.
    • Increase in extruder temperature has shown increase in ESD performance.
