Antero™ 840CN03, a Stratasys proprietary Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) based material filled with carbon nanotubes, is a semicrystalline high-performance thermoplastic resin known for its strength, high temperature tolerance, and excellent chemical resistance properties.
Antero 840CN03 is an ESD (electrostatic dissipative) compliant material that can dissipate current through the polymer matrix to prevent static discharge in 3D printed parts made with this material. Experimentation to characterize its electrical properties has shown that most part geometries perform within the resistance range of 103 to 109 ohms, which is compliant with ESD requirements for most industries.
The objective of this white paper is to document the results of experiments to characterize typical ESD performance of different 3D printed geometries using standard print conditions. The part suite tested represents common geometries to illustrate expected results. Actual part performance may vary and should be evaluated on a case by case basis.

For Antero 840CN03, there is no significant variability in electrical resistance based on part orientation, height off build plate, position in printer, thickness or infill of printed parts. Although there is a slight difference between supported and unsupported faces with supported faces being slightly more resistive, overall, the variation is not significant, and the electrical isotropy of printed parts is robust.
