Premix’s Electrically Conductive Plastic Materials Ensure a Safe Handling of Electronic Components

ESD protection for sensitive components

Uncontrolled electrostatic discharges (ESD) cause component failures and breakage during the electronics production and transportation. Premix’s conductive and static dissipative plastic compounds protect components from ESD. This will reduce the extend of hidden failures and guarantee a longer operation life for electronic devices.

The first PRE-ELEC® application was injection-molded box for Finnish television manufacturing company in early 1980's. Ever since that the components have became more delegate and smaller in size. Along the way, Premix PRE-ELEC® product portfolio has also grown and evolved during the decades.  Today, the typical ESD package has been made out of conductive concentrates, since the cost-awareness and material recycling possibilities.

Setting the standards for ESD control

More than 35 years in electronics packaging business have taught us a lot. We have also had the honour to get to know and work together with the top-notch experts within the field of ESD control. The annual highlight of the year is on September when the “Global ESD Family” gets together into ESD Association’s EOS/ESD Symposium, Exhibits and Tutorials. The year 2018 was special, since the 40th EOS/ESD Symposium was held in Reno, Nevada.

For Premix, it is important to bring the voice of a raw material supplier into the forum, whose  participants mainly represent OEMs and component manufacturing companies. We have the best understanding of the characteristics and processing of plastic materials. And we want to share our experience and know-how for the benefit of the whole industry. For several years already, we have participated as co-writers in research projects and the results of our studies have been presented as technical papers at ESDA Symposiums.

For the safety of your products

At Premix, we do everything we can to improve the safety of our society – both for people and the environment. Our electrically conductive plastic materials are key factors in improving the component safety in the industry.

ESD component trays

PRE-ELEC® PS concentrate is the most cost-efficient raw material solution for ESD component trays. It performs excellently also in challenging formulations and improves for example sheet’s mechanical properties, even when diluted with undefined fraction of recycled polystyrene.

TPU/ABS sheets for heavy duty packaging

PRE-ELEC® ABS and TPU form together an excellent material combination in co-extrusion. They come forward when sheets with antislipping, abrasion and scratch resistance property are required for surface sensitive or heavy duty products.
