KRAIBURG TPE’s Portfolio Now Included Electrically Conductive TPEs

October 26 (2020

KRAIBURG TPE is now supplying electrically conductive TPEs with adhesion to polyolefins or polyamides. These sophisticated products complement the THERMOLAST K portfolio, and with the company’s usual high, consistent quality they represent a convincing innovation. In addition, new and existing customers will benefit from the usual advice and service – everything from a single source.

Innovative applications, such as sensors for the automotive industry, electrostatically dissipative components, or smart textiles for sportswear and safety clothes, require materials with defined electrical properties. Electrically conductive TPEs open up new opportunities for this type of application with regard to touch qualities, functionality and design. KRAIBURG TPE is taking up the challenge and is now offering two new materials series of conductive TPEs to successfully serve this emerging market.

The EC series with adhesion to polypropylene provides a resistance of < 101 Ω cm, a hardness of 70–80 Shore A with a density of 0.97–0.99 g/cm3. The unique EC/PA series with adhesion to polyamides has a resistance of < 103 Ω cm and a hardness of 70–80 Shore A with a density of 0.96–0.97 g/cm3. Both products are available in black.

Customers will benefit from the following characteristics, which both series provide:

• Excellent electrical conductivity
• Thermoplastic processability
• Multicomponent injection molding with excellent adhesion to various thermoplastics
• Non-sticky surface feel
• Sealed and homogeneous surfaces
