How can you effectively mitigate conductivity issues before they affect safety, productivity, and profitability? Our Conductive and Anti-Static Compounds offer electrical properties spanning the surface resistivity spectrum from 100 to 1012 ohm/sq and are formulated for injection molding or extrusion processing.

In all-polymeric grades, our conductive IDP polymers known as PermaStat® and PermaStat Plus® are alloyed with host resins; for others, conductive particulate or fibers are combined with a base polymer to form a conductive matrix. Available in natural, black, or colored particulate and all polymeric-based materials, we can tailor your compound to provide static dissipation, electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection, EMI/RFI shielding, or thermal management.

These materials provide a very slow decay of static charge, from hundredths of to several seconds, preventing accumulations that may be a source of discharge or initiate other nearby electrical events.

Our all-polymeric PermaStat® compounds protect sensitive electronics from the damaging effects of static electricity. These compounds feature a consistent surface resistivity of 1010 to 1011 ohms/sq and are free of carbon black, so they do not crayon or “slough.” Unlike coatings, these properties are inherent to the material and not humidity-dependent for activation or limited by fragility.

Our Static Dissipative Compounds allow for the controlled dissipation or decay of electrical charges at a much faster rate than anti-static materials, generally within milliseconds. Measured resistance is uniform and usually strong.

Materials that offer ideal electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection (106 – 109 Ohms/sq) are at the low end of the static dissipative range. Our CCX Conductive Masterbatches are specially formulated for ESD protection and are available in four distinct additive technologies: Stainless Steel Fiber, Carbon Nanotubes, Carbon Black, and PermaStat® dissipative polymer technology. In addition, you’ll find ESD compounds, including carbon particulate-filled grades, in our ESD-A product line.

Our PermaStat Plus® compounds further expand the usefulness of PermaStat® materials, with surface resistivity as strong as 108 Ohms/sq and are an excellent choice for meeting static protection requirements of the ATEX directive.
