    ESD safe Flexible filament?

    Does anyone know of an ESD safe filament that is also flexible? I can't find any. Thanks.

    ElectroStatic Discharge? It seems that all filaments would be pretty similar in that regard, unless they were conductive.

    as none of the flexibles are conductive - wouldn't that make them all esd safe ?
    Or am i missing something ?

    You are missing something....

    Insulators are not ESD as they can't be grounded and static charge will remain.

    pretty sure I've tried all the different carbon based conductive filaments. None of them are conductive enough to be of any use.

    However there was a company at tct who were working on a non-carbon based conductive filament that could be produced in lots of different colours.
    They wouldn't tell me what it was based around :-)
