Premix Thermoplastics has introduced a line of conductive and static dissipative compounds based on copolymer polyacetal (POM), available with or without fibreglass reinforcement.
Their PRE-ELEC 12-000 conductive (<1x10e5 ohm) compounds are based on copolymer polyacetal with carbon black or carbon fibre additives. They are said to be suitable for applications such as automotive fuel systems, gears and similar components where good toughness, wear and chemical resistance are important.
PRE-ELEC 12-031 conductive compounds can be coloured for coding if desired without affecting the electrical properties of the compound. These compounds are useful where the added stiffness of carbon fibres is desirable. PRE-ELEC ESD 12-000 static dissipative (1x10e9 to 1x10e11 ohm) compounds are colourable alloys of copolymer polyacetal and inherently dissipative polymers.
At the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA)'s third annual Infrastructure Day on 6-7 February 2018 34 ACMA members joined together to meet with over 100 Members of Congress and their staffs to advance legislation to drive investment in innovative material solutions for transportation, water and energy infrastructure.
