Product Description
PCTG (amorphous copolyester) based ESD safe filament for Fused Filament Fabrication.

Ultrafuse Z PCTG is an ESD safe filament developed specifically for printing handheld tools, general assembly fixtures for electronics, robotics, automation components, and parts for explosion proof environments. Printed objects have very smooth surface properties which help to prevent latent failures in electronics. PCTG is an easy to print material with significantly increased impact strength when compared to PETG.
