Anti-static agent for ESD-safe natural butadiene rubber (NBR) latex with retained durability and color
TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes are the most effective anti-static agent for Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) latex, which impart permanent, humidity-independent anti-static properties, effectively protecting final products from the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) occurring.
In contrast to other anti-static agents, such as multi wall carbon nanotubes, carbon fibers and most types of carbon black, graphene nanotubes have the unique capability to form conductive networks in latexes, even with only an ultra-low concentration of TUBALL™. This is possible thanks to a high length-to-diameter ratio, together with the high conductivity, strength, and flexibility of graphene nanotubes. As a result, TUBALL™ nanotubes provide superior conductivity at significantly reduced loading levels, while retaining the mechanical properties and color of NBR latex.
EN 16350 standard for safety wear
Graphene nanotubes for NBR latex feature:
- No need to change standard production processes
- Allow coloration
- Maintain or improve mechanical properties
- Permanent, stable electrical resistivity of < 108 Ω•cm
- Materials are ready to use “as produced”
