3D printing with static-dissipative parts

ABS-ESD7 is the best FDM printing material for printing with static-dissipative thermoplastic. With incredible durability, this material is suited for end-use components, electronic products, and assembly of electronic components.

Overview

For applications where a static charge could damage components, impair performance, or cause an explosion, ABS-ESD7 offers a safe and suitable FDM material for printing. This prevents a build-up of static electricity where a static shock is prevented. Static dissipation also makes the material ideal for applications int he presence of powders, dust, and mist that might otherwise be attracted to a plastic part.
