Premix’s Electrically Conductive Plastic Materials Ensure the Safety in Explosive Atmospheres

For the safety of your products

Electrically conductive PRE-ELEC® compounds and concentrates ensure a safe handling of dusts, powders and liquids also in EX-environments and other explosive atmospheres. Light and corrosion resistant plastics are used for metal replacement, since their processing is easy and cost-efficient.

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 – a single spark can lead to serious consequences. Unlike traditional plastics, electrically conductive plastic materials can be grounded and the generation of electrostatic charges eliminated. These high-quality plastics also ensure lightweight, corrosion-resistant and durable product solutions.

We offer a wide portfolio of material solutions to various Atex and EX-environments and different applications, such as pipes and profiles, flexible hoses, films, filaments and tapes, canisters, pails and drums.

Customer case: Electrically conductive plastics ensure safety in explosive atmospheres

Isolated or not, Sakha Republic and its over 960 000 inhabitants need gasoline. Before, gasoline to Sakha was delivered in big tanks along the area’s long rivers. To give you some perspective, the total length of the area’s rivers is about 2 million kilometers. To serve all the villages within the Republic, the vessels stopped at several ports to empty the tanks into smaller containers. The possibility of a leakage was always present and thus, also a huge risk for an environmental catastrophe.

Obviously, we couldn’t build a railway or improve the highway connection but instead, came up with another solution to improve the safety of these transportations. Now, 40-litre canisters are manufactured from Premix’s electrically conductive plastic material, filled up with gasoline and delivered by helicopter. From the unloading position, other villages are served by ship transport. The certified, high-quality canister is guaranteed to be unbreakable even in case of an accident. And it goes without saying that in this explosive atmosphere, electrical conductivity is a must.
