Graphene nanotubes create a dense conductive network inside thermoplastic compounds that guarantees stable electrical conduction performance with no adverse effects on the mechanical and rheological properties of plastics.
OCSiAl markets nanotube-based concentrates for wide range of thermoplastics: glass fiber filled polyamide, polyamide, glass fiber filled PPS, PVC-plastisol, TPU, polycarbonate, ABS, and PC-ABS polypropylene. Other conductive additives with nanotubes for polyethylene, polystyrene, and others are undergoing validation and are referred to as beta products.
Note: This diagram provides average trends compared with other additives based on OCSiAl data. Product performance may vary depending on product type and formulation.
*Values may vary depending on the formulation, processing, and products. The values shown are given as the typical reference.
