OCSiAl (Columbus, OH, US and Sunnyvale, CA, US) introduced at CAMX its Conductive Color Composite Technology. Normally, when carbon black is added to a composite for conductive applications that require antistatic or electrostatic dissipation qualities or for electrostatic painting, you’re stuck with one color: black. OCSiAl’s TUBALL single-wall carbon nanotubes allow for custom color retention at loading concentrations as low as 0.02-0.05%, says the company. Conductivity is enabled with uniform surface resistivity, without hot spots, and without impacting part mechanical strength, while retaining vivid masterbatch color.
