Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a serious problem. Most thermoplastic resins are electrical insulators. However carefully designed formulations of thermoplastic resins with conductive carbon blacks can change the electrical characteristics from insulating to conductive.
Static electricity can be a problem sometimes as it is a natural phenomenon which cannot be avoided and can lead to disastrous circumstances.
Rapid dissipation of this charge causing a spark could be devastating. Delicate electronic components are easily damaged by static discharge and subsequent faults in assembled equipment can be costly.
To reduce the risk of a catastrophic discharge of electrostatic energy, Blend Colours Manufactures range of conductive compounds. The conductive properties of these compounds are permanent and not dependent on temperature or humidity. Conductive compounds can be processed on conventional plastics processing equipment and are designed to meet the needs of the many industries where permanent reduction of electrostatic hazards is required.
