Using a High-Temperature ESD-Safe Photopolymer with Fortify

While Electrostatic Discharge seems fairly mild to most of us, engineers have to worry about it a lot more. Just one static discharge can ignite flammable vapors or ruin a whole PCB, and buildup of static can mess up powder handling applications. That’s why Fortify developed what it says is the AM industry’s first High-Temperature ESD-safe photopolymer. To learn more about the ESD space and Fortify’s ESD-HT material, join their “When and Why to use a 3D Printable High Temperature ESD Safe Photopolymer” webinar at 11 am EST on Tuesday, April 26th.

“Here at Fortify, we have many of these same fears which have led us to develop the industry’s first High-Temperature ESD-safe photopolymer. Able to withstand temperatures of up to 284C, the ESD-HT resin is uniquely positioned to be a “one-stop shop” for all static dissipative needs. From basic jigs and fixtures to customized reflow pallets and everything in between, Fortify’s ESD-HT can deliver safe static dissipation. In this upcoming webinar, we will talk about all things at the intersection of additive and ESD. Items like materials development, why ESD-safe materials are extremely important, and when to use them.”
