Integral Technologies Inc. (Bellingham, Wash.), a manufacturer of hybrid conductive plastics, has introduced ElectriPlast-CF66, an electrically conductive, resin-based material designed to meet electromagnetic shielding, thermal requirements and mechanical properties for automotive, marine and aerospace applications. Composed of polyamide (PA) 6.6 and nickel-plated carbon fiber, the product is said to reduce traditional component weight by half and is lighter than other conductive plastics in the industry. Potential applications include electromagnetic shielding in auto engine compartments and other harsh environments. Its reportedly high mechanical strength withstands very high temperatures, corrosive fluids and high-frequency vibrations. Parts molded with the material are said to have outperformed aluminum at certain frequencies while delivering a 50 to 60 percent reduction in weight.
