As leading specialists in conductive materials, our excellent services supply a wide range of different industries. We provide top quality materials, including conductive polystyrene for long-lasting solutions. Our years of experience combined with our knowledge and unmatched service means you get nothing but the best, and that goes for our prices too.
We are proud of our quality products, especially our conductive material, which is used for the manufacture of sensitive electrical and electronic components. It means we work with some of the UK’s biggest industries. We use only the best quality materials and have up-to-date equipment to keep up with the changing demands of the industry.
Conductive materials are required for the manufacture of sensitive electrical and electronic components. Conductive Polystyrene is a carbon black filled thermoplastic compound that has low electrical resistivity combined with an excellent balance of mechanical properties that make it easy to extrude and thermoform.
There are two conductivity categories :
- < or = 103 Ohms enveloping conductivity (hard discharge). The material must counter the build up of static electricity by preventing and diverting any voltage potential caused by friction.
- > or = 104 – < or = 1010 Ohms controlled diverting conductivity (soft discharge). The material must protect the content of transport containers and packaging from static fields where electrical fields are reduced in a controlled manner by the conductive properties of the material.
Eagle Plastics Limited are able to supply this material as bespoke sheets or rolls subject to minimum order quantities.
Advantages of Conductive Polystyrene
There are many advantages of choosing soft conductive material over traditional products such as metal, including ease of fabrication and cost of manufacture. At Eagle Plastics we can offer a bespoke service for different grades of conductivity to be achieved, from very low to very high. Using plastic conductive materials we can tailor to exacting customer requirements, which means you are getting the exact product required for your application.
The versatility of polystyrene as a conductor makes it a fantastically popular choice of material for a number of applications where low electrical resistivity balance of mechanical properties is required.
Eagle Plastics is based in the Midlands, which means we can supply and deliver throughout the UK easily. Our own fleet of transport, which enables us to provide a flexible, reliable and speedy delivery service is just another benefit to using Eagle Plastics for your conductive material needs.
