Electrical properties for plastics
Our carbon blacks are excellent solutions for preventing electrostatic discharge and improving conductivity.
Lose the static
In order to avoid electrostatic discharge, plastics need to be made electrically conductive or static dissipative. The most effective way of dissipating electrostatic discharge is to add conductive carbon black to your polymer matrix.
Conductive carbon blacks are special branched carbons with a graphitic structure that are able to transport the flow of electrons and dissipate electrostatic charge.
We produce a product range called Ensaco®, a special family of electrically conductive carbon blacks produced by a proprietary method that delivers extremely pure products with many advantages over conventional alternatives.
Ensaco carbon blacks are easily dispersible due to their low surface area; they demonstrate low moisture pick up; improve surface smoothness; and impart excellent shear strength. They are the perfect solution for manufacturers of conductive and antistatic plastics compounds.
What’s more, when used in combination with other additives, they also provide electromagnetic interference shielding. Get in touch with our team to find out how our carbon blacks can work for you.
