To the gear service life calculator

iglidur I8-ESD is an electrostatically discharging SLS material for long-lasting, abrasion-resistant 3D printed components. Ideal for applications where ESD properties are essential for the avoidance of damage to electronic components: also the perfect choice for the manufacture of anti-static parts for machines that require ATEX certification.
In addition to its antistatic properties, iglidur I8-ESD is also characterised by its outstanding rigidity, as a result of which, the produced parts are deformed to a lesser degree than other materials under exactly the same load. Like all other 3D printing materials, iglidur I8-ESD contains solid lubricants, which ensure especially low friction and make additional lubrication unnecessary. More information about the material is available in the iglidur I8-ESD material data sheet.
Manufacturing time for parts made of iglidur I8-ESD in our3D printing service is one to three days. iglidur I8 ESD laser sintering powder for processing in regular laser sintering systems can be purchased from the online shop.
