Kimya Kimya TPC-ESD Filament - 750 g - Naturel
ESD safe, flexible filament from Kimya
Kimya TPC-ESD is an ESD safe, flexible 3D printing material from the French manufacturer Kimya. The material belongs to the thermoplastic copolyester elastomers. ESD stands for electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharges are voltage discharges caused by large potential differences.
ESD materials are often used for housing parts of electrical components. For example, if a cable breaks and a live wire comes into contact with the housing, the TPC ESD would discharge the residual current. This is a conductive material with high resistance. The flexible material has a Shore hardness of 91A.
In addition to electrical conductivity, Kimya TPC ESD also offers several other advantages: The material has a high chemical resistance, is easy to print and offers a very high flexibility. The maximum elongation is > 400%.
Applications for Kimya TPC ESD Filament
Kimya TPC ESD is an industrial plastic, which is used for example in the automotive and aerospace industries. Often brackets and fixtures are printed from this material. Housing parts for robot arms or even spare parts for machines require ESD protection.
