Electrically conducting plastics
Compounds based on carbon fibres, carbon nanotubes and highly conductive plastic-metal hybrids.
- Electrically active substances such as special conductive carbon particles, carbon fibres,
- conducting micro-fibres with a nano-structure or inherently conducting materials.
- Carbon particles are used only for applications outside of clean room production where the actual semi-conductor structures are closed in and sealed.
- Carbon fibres, nano-tubes and inherently conducting substances have greater wear stability and are less liable to contamination.
- Surface resistance of 10^6 Ohm to 10^12 Ohm is considered to have electrostatic conduction.
- Surface resistance is less than 10^6 Ohm, this is then said to be an electrically conducting material.
- Ensinger Compounds uses various carbon fibres and carbon nano-tubes.
High conductive materials
- Materials with conductivities of up to 5* 10^5 S/m and excellent shielding properties. more ...
- Electrically conducting plastics on a carbon nano-tubes basis
- These materials can be produced to an ATEX standard thus assuring a maximum of safety in all processes and plant
- Electrically conducting prepared plastics generally have a high filler content level – with fillers such as carbon particles
- The mechanical properties of these plastics are significantly changed as a result
- Multiple walled carbon nano-tubes (MWCNT) will generally bring the required performance levels even at a very low dosage
- The essential plastic proberties are influenced to much lower extent
