3DXSTAT™ ESD PEI [Polyether Imide] is made using ULTEM™ 1010 resin and multi-wall CNTs. ULTEM™ 1010 is an amorphous, ultra polymer that combines excellent mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties. The addition of carbon nanotubes is an efficient and effect way to achieve consistent and reliable electrostatic protection.
3DXTECH produces this 3D printing filament using a specialty compound custom-formulated using ULTEM™ 1010 PEI resin and advanced carbon additives. PEI is an amorphous, high-performance polymer that combines excellent mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties.
Our PEI based filaments offer the ability to create parts with excellent properties at elevated temperatures due to a very high glass transition temperature (Tg). Ideal for use in critical applications which require electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection, a high level of cleanliness, and the outstanding thermal and chemical properties you’ve come to expect with PEI based compounds.
The surface resistance of the printed ESD PEI part will vary depending on the printer’s extruder temperature. For example, if your testing indicates the part is too insulative, then increasing the extruder temperature will result in improved conductivity. Therefore, the surface resistance can be ‘dialed-in’ by adjusting the extruder temperature up or down depending on the reading you receive on your part.
1.75mm and 2.85mm +/- 0.05mm in diameter
If needed, parts printed using PEI may be annealed in a hot-air oven to reduce any printed-in stresses which may be present inside the part. Printed-in stresses may occur in any plastic and may result in lower than expected mechanical properties. If this is an issue with your part, you can follow the simple 5-step ramp up/down process for annealing the PEI parts.
