Static electricity is a natural phenomenon, one that can lead to disaster if left to build up on fuel pump hoses, polyethylene bags, or tools used in confined spaces, such as mines or tunnels. One spark can be devastating. Cabot's full range of CABELEC® conductive compounds greatly reduces this risk.
Although natural thermoplastic resins typically act as electric insulators, our electrostatic discharge (ESD) compounds are carefully designed to transform these electrical characteristics from insulating to conductive.
CABELEC compounds are formulated by combining conductive carbon black and thermoplastic resins. These compounds meet the needs of many industries where permanent reduction of electrostatic hazards is required, such as:
- Electronics packaging
- Industrial applications
- Automotive parts
The conductive properties of CABELEC compounds are permanent and are an integral part of the material's performance. They fulfill specific requirements related to their electrical, rheological and mechanical properties. Cabot CABELEC compounds are available for all current plastics processing techniques.
