Conductive Plastics Technology
Thermoset plastics by nature are inherently resistive and very effective electrical insulators. For composites manufacturers, achieving consistent profile conductivity can prove challenging.
Chromaflo Technologies R&D has continued to investigate the conductive matrix, identifying the challenges facing compounders, and developing new methods for providing consistency regardless of the composite compound composition. While a variety of materials are available to compounders to achieve conductivity, conductive grade carbon blacks have proven to be the material of choice.
Chromaflo’s Synermix® HC conductive dispersions utilize conductive grades of carbon black as well as conductive synergists to bring the following benefits to the thermoset compounder:
- Requires only a small amount of conductive material
- Creates a low impact on the viscosity of the composite compound
- Has a low potential for intermittent failures in conductivity
- Achieves high levels of conductivity
