Formlabs® ESD Resin


ESD Resin

Improve the yield of your electronics manufacturing lines with ESD Resin

Formlabs ESD resin is an SLA 3D printing material recommended for prototyping and manufacturing custom ESD-safe production tooling, jigs and fixtures or enclosures. This material's toughness is higher than that of many other 3D printed ESD-safe materials, therefore, engineers can prototype without risk of mechanical or electrical failure.

NO electrostatic discharge with ESD 3D-printed parts

In a production setting with electrical components, ESD-safe materials are crucial. With the innovation of ESD resin printing, it’s now possible to safeguard sensitive electrical parts by channelling static electricity away. Formlabs ESD resin’s high modulus and toughness make it perfect for demanding production environments, ensuring unmatched strength and durability.

What is Electrostatic Discharge?

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) occurs when there is a sudden flow of electricity between two charged objects. Static electricity accumulates when there is friction between multiple insulating components. When one of these components comes in contact with a conductor, the electricity discharges into the conductor. This is particularly dangerous in the electronics industry, where ESD-sensitive parts such as circuit boards can be damaged from unregulated static discharge. Something as small as the friction created by a jig touching an enclosure can cause a buildup of electrons and result in an electrostatic discharge, shorting out electrical components and leading to a nonfunctional product. Lack of control over processes involving ESD sensitive parts can decrease overall production yield. | By Formlabs
