Anti-static agent for conductive PVC plastisol compounds with good mechanical performance and possibility for coloring


TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes (single wall carbon nanotubes) in the form of TUBALL™ MATRIX 814 concentrate is an industry-friendly form of anti-static additive for PVC plastisol formulations. In contrast to ammonium salts and carbon black, graphene nanotubes enable a full set of properties: stable and permanent conductivity with preserved original colors and mechanical performance.

Graphene nanotubes vs carbon black & ammonium salts

Graphene nanotubes unique morphology allows them to create a dense conductive network inside thermoplastic compounds at ultra-low loading rates – starting from just 0.01 wt.% in the total compound. That unprecedentedly low concentration has minimal impact on the original color of compound.

The nanotube network inside the material serves as a reinforcing skeleton and contributes to abrasion resistance.

TUBALL™ MATRIX 814 antistatic additive for PVC plastisol demonstrates the following benefits:

  • Stable and permanent conductivity
  • Preserved original color of compound
  • Retained or even improved mechanical performance
  • Versatile application technologies
  • Clean production without the dust usually associated with carbon black
  • Flexibility in compound formulation thanks to low dosage of nanotubes
  • User-friendly form of concentrate with no additional equipment requir

PVS plastisols enhanced with TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes have found wide application in the mining, oil & gas, textile, and other industries.
