3DXSTAT™ ESD PETG + Carbon Nanotube Filament
Target surface resistance: 10^7 to 10^9 Ohm
Made using premium Eastman Amphora™ PETG + Multi-Wall Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs). 3DXSTAT™ 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 - 3DXTech uses a proprietary formulation of virgin Eastman Amphora™ PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol Copolymer) resin, multi-wall carbon nanotubes, and process / dispersion modifiers in order to give you the best possible printing experience.
Made using Eastman Amphora™ 3D Polymer.
- 750g and 1kg reels are supplied on a reel, vacuum packed in resealable mylar.
- 2kg is supplied on a single extra-large reel sealed in a clear vacuum bag.
|3DXNano™ ESD PETG Technical Data
|Technical Data Sheet
Benefits of PETG include:
- Superior Chemical Resistance vs. ABS
- Amorphous: Low and near isotropic shrinkage
- Low moisture absorption: 3X lower vs. ABS
- Very low odor emitted during printing
- Superior ductility vs. ABS
- Wide processing range: 230 - 270°C
Benefits of CNTs include:
- Consistent surface resistivity
- Low additive loading rates
- Improved retention of impact & elongation
- Low particulate contamination
- Minimal contribution to outgassing and ionic contamination
Typical applications include:
- Semi-con: HDD Components, Wafer Handling, Jigs, Casings, & Connectors
- Industrial: Conveying, Metering, and Sensing applications
Target conductivity for 3DXSTAT™ ESD PETG:
- 10^7 to 10^9 ohm surface resistivity on 3DP sample using concentric ring test method.
- Note: Internal 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 this filament works in your specific printer / application. However, please do not exceed 270°C to reduce the risk of polymer degradation.
Recommended Print Conditions:
- Extruder: Ideally 230 to 260°C; up to 270°C
- Platform Temp: 70 to 90°C, up to 100°C
- Platform Prep: Clean glass w/ Kapton Tape
- Raft: We recommended printing without a raft or using another filament such as ABS or HIPS for easy release. Additionally, we recommend allowing the print to cool before attempting to remove it from the build platform. PETG sticks very well and you may deform the part if you attempt to remove it before the part has completely cooled. We swap out build plates to increase print times.
Health & Safety
- Please download and read the MSDS for this product.
- Please print in a well-ventilated area.
- This product contains multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The CNTs contained in this product are fully encapsulated in the polymer matrix and do not migrate out of the product during handling or processing.
- We do not recommend that users sand, drill, or perform other mechanical operations on this polymer that may cause particulates of polymer and CNT to become airborne. Moisture (i.e., wet sanding) eliminates this dust / particulate risk.
- Do not exceed 270°C extruder temperature. This polymer is thermally stable at temperatures above 270°C, however this temperature limit will help assure that polymer degradation does not become an issue.
