Electrostatically discharging 3D printed components

iglidur® i8-ESD is an electrostatically dissipative SLS material for long-lasting, abrasion-resistant 3D printing components. It is ideal for applications where ESD specifications are essential for avoiding damage to electronic components and manufacturing anti-static parts for machines that require ATEX certification.
New product: iglidur® i9-ESD has a lower conductivity than iglidur i8-ESD, which prevents unwanted discharge currents between sensitive electrical components. This makes it particularly suitable for electronic connectors.
In addition to its antistatic specifications, iglidur i8-ESD and i9-ESD are also characterised by their outstanding rigidity, as a result of which the parts are deformed to a lesser degree than other materials under the same load.
