As leading specialists in conductive plastic, we supply a wide range of different industries, providing top quality materials including conductive polystyrene.
The material is used 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 buildup 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 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.
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 exact customer requirements, which means you are getting the exact product required for your application.
The versatility of polystyrene as a conductor makes it a popular choice of material for a number of applications where low electrical resistivity balance of mechanical properties is required.
