Filaticum Electrical products are used mainly in the electronics and automotive industry where electrostatic charging of the printed object can damage the product. Objects printed with Filaticum CONDUCTIVE, ESD or ANTISTATIC do not charge electrostatically due to the special carbon and chemical additives. Additionally, the dust and fine powder does not stick on the surface.
To decide for which application which filament suits the best, can be determined mainly experimentally. It depends on the electrical and mechanical requirements of the objects, and the 3D printing parameters. Filaticum Antistatic has the best mechanical properties, similar to standard PLA. Filaticum Conductive is the most rigid in this line, because of the used carbon powder and fiber, required for conductivity. Filaticum ESD is somewhere in the middle range.
Filaticum Antistatic: its main feature is the immediate and permanent antistatic effect. Its important characteristic also that it does not absorb the moisture content of the air. It keeps most physical properties of PLA, and it has increased impact strength compared to PLA. It can be produced in any color. No sloughing, off gassing or blooming.
For proper printing results use PLA printing settings: we recommend 210-230 °C printing temperature, at least 0.2 mm nozzle, and printing speed no higher than 90 mm / sec. Bed temperature 40-60 °C, usually any type of surface can be used.
