Typical ESD-R-100 applications include: HDD components, semi-con wafer handling, tools, casings, & connectors, soldering jigs, conveying, metering, and sensing applications.
ESD-R-100 resin produces extremely accurate and dimensionally stable prints. Due to its hardness it can sustain straight edges and print out even the smallest parts. It exhibits low shrinkage so the print will not deform during post-curing stage making this resin a perfect choice for tools, jigs and fixtures in electronics industry.
Water absorption is less than 0.2%. This means, that your models will not deform due to moisture or exposure to IPA. It is even resistant to some acids. Due to its resistant nature it can suit various challenging applications.
For a successful print, we recommend:
This ESD safe resin has a bit higher viscosity than other 3D printing resins.
If you use Anycubic Wash and Cure, leave the printed object submerged in IPA for 12 minutes. Depending on the results, you can repeat this step again and leave for additional 6 minutes.
If you prefer to clean with ordinary IPA baths, here is our easy 4 steps cleaning procedure:
Evaluate cleaning results and repeat this procedure only once (if needed).
If you prefer cleaning with ultrasonic cleaner, we recommend to put a printed part into the container with IPA, close it well and put the container into the ultrasonic cleaner filled with water. Leave it for no more than 10 minutes. No additional heating is necessary.
It is easier to remove supports before post-curing. However, you can also post-cure a print with supports and remove them later. Depending on the model this can help to obtain better geometries if you have such goal. Post-curing time depends on your curing station. It can vary from 5 minutes to 1 hour (until the surface of your 3D print becomes non-sticky). You should post-cure immediately after cleaning and drying. After proper post-curing surface of ESD-R-100 printed objects should be completely non-sticky and very hard to scratch.
