Imagine an extrudable plastic compound that was specially formulated to provide consistent electrical conductivity and ESD protection, even in thin extrusions. Furthermore, imagine that these compounds were manufactured on dedicated equipment which was designed to maximize both carbon dispersion and physical properties. At RTP Company, we not only imagined such plastics, we’ve made them a reality with our Conductive Extrusion Compounds product line.

Designing conductive compounds for extrusion applications, such as conductive vacuum hose or ESD packaging sheets, requires special attention to detail. Thin extrusion applications have strict physical property requirements which will be compromised if the conductive carbon is not consistently and uniformly dispersed. In addition, thin cross sections mean that the carbon loading must be accurately tuned to maintain conductivity over the entire extrusion run. Finally, the surface quality must not contain visual defects since we know that your product appearance is part of your product branding.

RTP Company recognizes the challenges you face in trying to extrude conductive plastic products. This is why we have installed specialized manufacturing equipment in the US and Europe to ensure the highest level of consistent carbon dispersion in our newest extrusion compounds. The resulting conductive compounds will make you shine in applications including conductive vacuum hose, ESD packaging sheet, geomembrane film, conductive pipe, wire & cable jacketing and ESD tubing.
