Clariant ESD safe PET-G
The sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects can cause harm to sensitive parts such as electronics, affect magnetic media and potentially cause fires. To protect against this, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) safe materials are often used to hold sensitive parts. ESD grade materials are polymers that are not insulating but actually conduct. Clariant provides a series of ESD safe materials that are based on unique fillers and optimized for material extrusion type printing. PET-G, PC+ABS, polycarbonate and polyamide based ESD options are available to address varied ESD safe needs such as ease of printing, higher impact strength and material flexibility.

Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker 3 extended and an Ultimaker S5.
Ideally store the 3D printer filament in a cool, dry place at temperatures between 5 to 25°C in a sealed container with the provided Clariant Desi Pak® desiccant bag. If the 3D printer filament has been exposed to moisture, please dry at 65°C for 4-6 hours with a vacuum or desiccant drying system if possible. Minimum shelf life is 1 year from the date of shipping when properly stored.
