Description

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.   

Please note:

  • 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.

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

  1. Please download and read the MSDS for this product.  
  2. Please print in a well-ventilated area.  
  3. 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.  
  4. 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.  
  5. 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.
PETG

PET-G

Overview

A versatile middle ground between PLA and ABS.

PET-G Is stronger than PLA but easier to print with than ABS. The glycol in this material makes the filament less brittle and resistant to water, chemicals, and solvents. It is naturally clear, making it the go-to filament for translucent prints. 
The strength and durability of a PET-G filament vary depending on the brand. An easy way to check if one PET-G is stronger than another is by comparing the tensile strength value of each filament. If printed in a sterile, FDA-approved environment, PET-G can be used to create food-safe prints.

Due to its strong and durable nature, PET-G can be difficult to finish with post-processing methods such as sanding. Prints may also be difficult to paint or glue together. Depending on printer and slicer settings, you may experience small hairs over the surface of prints caused by stringing. These can be removed with a heat gun or lighter.

Used for: Water Bottles, Plant Pots.
