Guaranteed conductivity of epoxy coating without compromising color and performance


Obtain the required level of electrical conductivity in your coating formulation, but preserve its color, surface, rheology and mechanical performance – all starting with only 0.1% of graphene nanotube concentrate as a conductive additive.

OCSiAl is a global leading manufacturer of graphene nanotubes branded TUBALLTM.

To simplify industrial use of nanotube , the company develops and produces TUBALLTM MATRIX – graphene nanotube concentrates. TUBALLTM MATRIX demonstrates a consistent quality for large industrial batches.

FULL RANGE OF CONDUCTIVITY COMBINED WITH COLOR

Even ultra-low loading rates of TUBALL MATRIX are enough to create a dense conductive network that is 100% guaranteed protection against insulative zones or “hot spots”.

In contrast to the high loading rates of standard conductive agents required to target the same resistivity level, using graphene nanotube concentrates allows you to give your final products a wide range of colors.

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AS OF NON-CONDUCTIVE EPOXY

Thanks to their unique morphology and low loading rates, graphene nanotubes allow the mechanical properties and rheology of the original compound to be preserved. These parameters are usually sacrificed when using carbon black or carbon fiber, which require much higher loadings.

THE BEST PRICE OF CONDUCTIVE PROPERTIES

Graphene nanotubes guarantee the same properties as conductive mica, but at lower price, leading to the best cost-performance ratio.

Replacing other standard conductive agents with graphene nanotube concentrates can also lead to cost cuts for final products manufacturers. For example, ESD floors installers can reduce the thickness of coating and use less epoxy, while tank lining producers can decrease the number and duration required for visual inspections of conductive coating.
