Benefits of PLA Include:

  • Ideal for printing without a heated bed, no enclosure required
  • Low shrinkage, warping, and easy printability, PLA prints on practically all desktop 3D printers
  • Very low odor, perfect for printing in home or office environments
  • Gorgeous surface quality to make printed parts look beautiful
  • Made from plants makes PLA a renewable biopolymer

Benefits of 3DXSTAT™ Include:

  • Consistent surface resistivity
  • Improved retention of impact & elongation
  • Low particulate contamination
  • Minimal contribution to outgassing and ionic contamination

Typical ESD PLA Applications Include:

  • Semi-con: HDD Components, Wafer Handling, Jigs, Casings, & Connectors
  • Industrial: Conveying, Metering, and Sensing Applications

Target Conductivity for 3DXSTAT ESD PLA:

  • 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 ESD PLA filament works in your specific printer / application.

Surface Conductivity as a Function of Extruder Temperature:

The surface resistance of the printed ESD PLA 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.
