Premix Thermoplastics Introduces New Static Dissipative Compounds for Co-Extruding ESD Sheet
Milton, WI (February 4, 2004) Premix Thermoplastics, Inc., announces the introduction of a new HIPS-based static dissipative compound called PRE-ELEC ESD 6110 for static control applications. Specially formulated for the co-extrusion of ESD sheet, this inherently dissipative polymer (IDP) is ideal for thermoformed ESD-proof packaging applications in the electronics, medical, pharmaceutical and paper handling industries. The new material is colorable, washable, reusable, recyclable, clean (low outgassing) and permanently dissipative even in very low humidity (12%) conditions.
Using only 5% ESD 6110 on both surfaces of a standard grade HIPS or PS (or regrind) sheet results in a co-extruded 3-layer construction that is much more cost effective than a solid sheet. Products made with this thermoformable sheet have a surface resistance of between 1 x 108 and 5 x 109 ohms and a charge decay time of less than 2 seconds from 5000V to 50V.
Premix Thermoplastics, Inc. is a subsidiary of Premix Oy, a leading manufacturer of electrically conductive compounds in Europe. It offers customers innovative, reliable and safe plastics raw material solutions in applications ranging from ESD proof packaging to EMI shielding. Premix products are available for film, sheet and injection molding applications.
