ESD Coloured and Reinforced Thermoplastics

Benefits of TUBALL™

  • TUBALL™ enables high conductivity at significantly lower loadings
  • Permanent and uniform conductivity without “hot spots"
  • Tensile strength increase
  • Enables colouration
  • Easy to handle with off-the-shelf concentrates

TUBALL™ single wall carbon nanotubes are superior to other conductive additives owing to their significantly reduced loading levels, starting from just 0.01% by total weight of the compound.

Unlike other conventional additives, which require higher loading levels, TUBALL™ provides uniform permanent conductivity without significantly impacting the colour, and it even enhances mechanical properties.

Case Study: PolyTeam

PolyTeam, one of the leading Russian manufacturers of polyethylene products, needed to develop a line of coloured anti-static polyethylene tanks, produced by a rotation moulding method. The specific application required that there be no negative impacts on the mechanical properties, viscosity or density of the host material.

Case Study: Granch

The bodies of mining signal lights need to be anti-static because of the risk of methane explosions. Granch, a manufacturer of signal communication tools, wanted to develop a signal light body made of ABS plastic but with anti-static properties and reinforced with TUBALL™ nanotubes.
