People and environment safety is a key issue when flammable and hazardous liquids, gases and powders are processed, transported and used. It is exceedingly important to secure an explosion-free environment – single spark can lead to serious consequences.
When electrically conductive plastic materials are in direct contact with hazardous substances, generation of electrostatic charges will be eliminated.
PRE-ELEC® PE 16006 is a conductive thermoplastic compound based on PE-HD. Conductivity is achieved by using special conductive carbon black. In addition to a low electrical resistivity PRE-ELEC® PE 16006 has an excellent balance of mechanical properties and is easy to injection mould. PRE-ELEC® PE 16006 is environmental stress crack resistant (ESCR). It has also high stiffness and impact resistance whereas its low melt viscosity enables better processability of thin walled structures. Therefore it is well suitable for UN approved packaging solutions.
