Francesco Franceschetti Elastomeri announced at FAKUMA and COMPAMED fairs 2018 a new family of electrostatic dissipative TPE compound.
Plastic materials are electrical insulators by their own nature. This feature is usually desired, but it can generate problems when final products undergo rubbing stress. In such conditions the material accumulates electrostatic charges which are responsible for the “shock” received when touching an electrified object. This problem has increasingly become an aspect of legislative relevance for Personal Protective Equipment (e.g. safety shoes, hospital clogs).
TPE compounds can be modified to exhaust the build-up of electrostatic charge thanks to conductive fillers.
The conductive properties of the compound strongly depend on choice and dispersion of fillers inside the thermoplastic matrix. FRANCESCO FRANCESCHETTI ELASTOMERI has developed a new family of antistatic TPE compounds: MARFRAN E CD. We offer both non-permanent and permanent antistatic materials that combine the easy processability, lightness and versatility of TPE with the dissipation properties of the electrical charges.
