Conductive plastics conduct electricity in contrary to normal insulating thermoplastics. They are recyclable and can be extruded or injection molded fast and cost-efficiently into desired shapes and sizes. Conductive plastics are controlling static electricity in countless applications across many industries.
Conductive plastics are typically used in ESD (electrostatic discharge) control, as well as ATEX (explosive atmospheres) and EMI (electromagnetic interference) shielding applications. Other uses of conductive plastics include metal replacement solutions, level detection sensors, heating elements, air cleaning systems, dust suppression and the prevention of electrostatic attraction (ESA).
By ensuring that any plastic material is electrically conductive, we can eliminate the problems caused by electrostatic discharge, making the world a more comfortable and safer place for all of us!
In 1983, Premix developed the first electrically conductive plastic compound for electronics packaging. Since then, we have become the world’s leading supplier of conductive plastics. Today our products and solutions are used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, chemical, electronics, diagnostics, medical and mining.
Ensure safe fuel handling with Premix’s electrically conductive compounds
Refueling generates static electricity in car’s fuel filler system (FFS). It is caused by the friction between flowing gasoline and FFS’s plastic surface. This static electricity might lead to gasoline ignition.
PRE-ELEC® PE compounds for automotive fuel systems bear unique advantages compared to competing solutions; clearly improved material flow for blow molding process combined with fuel resistance and high electrically conductivity.
Boost your business with electrically conductive plastic concentrates
Electrically conductive plastic concentrates are an excellent way to reduce raw material costs. One small extra step in your process can lead to significant cost savings and help you modify product formulations through the effective use of recycled or reinforced materials.
In PRE-ELEC® concentrates, Premix has optimized the carbon black content to the highest possible level. When buying electrically conductive plastic concentrate from Premix, you avoid paying extra for unnecessary polymers, freight or compounding work. These are hidden costs you often encounter with conventional compounds.
Fire retardant for better safety and health
Premix’s new V0-halogen-free conductive plastic compound combines excellent fire retardant properties with electrical conductivity – a challenging combination that improves safety, health and the environment. What’s more, the new product meets the strict environmental and health requirements for fire retardant plastics, including full compliance with RoHS.
Premix is the world’s leading specialist in electrically conductive plastic compounds and customized plastic solutions. We have profound expertise in polymer modification, carbon black dispersion and compounding technologies. This knowledge, along with our strong product development know-how and understanding of customer needs, has helped us create innovative and reliable product concepts.
Dedication and co-operation are the cornerstones of our work. We explore new business opportunities and competitive advantage together with our customers. Creating a and more secure future for everyone. We share the targets, but the challenge is ours.
