PK ESDMechnano is excited to share that it has been nominated for the prestigious TCT Materials Award for its novel PK ESD solution. This Laser Sintering material showcases a fusion of advanced technology and unparalleled performance, earning recognition for Mechnano’s commitment to excellence and innovation.

The PK ESD solution is a major milestone in material innovation, combining Mechnano’s proprietary D’Func technology with the Jabil PK 5000 engineered powder. This unique integration ensures that laser-sintered components exhibit remarkably consistent electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties, positioning PK ESD as a leading contender in the industry.

PK ESD stands out by maintaining the outstanding characteristics of Jabil PK 5000, including superior impact resistance, exceptional chemical and abrasion resistance, and improved elongation at break when compared to standard polyamides (PA11 and PA12). Furthermore, the eco-friendly PK 5000 resin utilized in the production of PK ESD helps reduce carbon footprint, making it a sustainable choice.

“We are honored to be nominated for the TCT Materials Award, recognizing the transformative innovation behind our PK ESD solution,” said Olga “Dr. O” Ivanova, Director of Applications & Technology at Mechnano. “Mechnano remains committed to pushing the boundaries of additive manufacturing and delivering materials that set new industry standards.”

Mechnano’s PK ESD powder establishes a higher benchmark for Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) materials used in Additive Manufacturing. It boasts exceptional durability, toughness, and nano-uniform static dissipative performance. Tailored to cater to the requirements of automotive, electronics, and industrial manufacturing applications, PK ESD guarantees structural integrity and optimal performance even in the most challenging environments.

The TCT Materials Award celebrates advancements in materials for additive manufacturing, recognizing the vital role of innovation in driving the industry forward. Mechnano is proud to be at the forefront of this innovation, delivering materials that empower manufacturers to achieve new levels of performance and efficiency.
