ROMULUS, MI – Product designers and molders as well as marketers of consumer goods, sports equipment and electronic products who are seeking to add permanent anti-static/ESD effect properties on and in their products can now do so by using new, proprietary anti-static Maxelast® P Series TPEs (thermoplastic elastomers) from Alliance Polymers and Services, LLC.   Four new grades are currently available.   The new TPEs can also be used for overmolding onto PP (polypropylene) and for standalone applications. 

The new formulations, offered as the latest additions to the P Series of Maxelast TPEs, provide a permanent anti-static/ESD effect with a surface resistivity down to 1010 sq (or ohm/sq).  They are available in four Shore A Hardnesses – 65, 75, 80 and 90 – making them suitable for a wide variety of applications that need to meet different hardness requirements.  APS officials note that this ESD protection has been achieved without using carbon black.  All grades are fully colorable for easy product identification.

Features and benefits of the new Maxelast TPEs include the ability to:
