Electrically Conductive Plastics Ensure Safety in Explosive Atmospheres

Safer transportations even to the most isolated areas

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 when transporting explosive goods. Take isolated Russian areas for example. Gasoline can be transported more safely in certified, electrically conductive canisters even to the most remote areas areas of this gigantic country.

Russia is the largest country in the world by area. It extends across the whole of northern Asia and the eastern third of Europe. It spans 11 time zones and hosts a wide range of environments and landforms, from busy cities to deserts and from deep forests to Arctic tundra. Some of the areas are so isolated that they cannot be reached by train or car.  Here, you are left with two transportation options: air or water.

Isolated or not, every area and its inhabitants need gasoline. Often, gasoline is delivered in big tanks along the area’s rivers. In this case, the vessels must make several stops to serve all the villages in the river area. In each port the tanks are emptied into smaller containers. The possibility of a leakage is always present and thus, also a huge risk for an environmental catastrophe.

40-litre canisters are manufactured from Premix’s electrically conductive plastic material, filled up with gasoline and delivered by helicopter.

Since we are not a construction company, there's not much we can do to improve the railway or  highway connections. Instead, we have another solution to improve the safety of these transportations. In this case, 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.

In addition to gasoline transportation, this kind of canisters can be used as a fuel tank connected directly to motors of motor boats, snow mobiles and so on.
