Premix Thermoplastics Inc. (Milton, Wis.) has developed PRE-ELEC CR compounds, a new line of electrically conductive thermoplastic compounds with "controlled resistance" levels. The new line enables users to tailor either volume or surface resistivity required for a particular application. The products are fully compoundable and can be molded without concern for "hot spots." They are said to offer a cost-effective alternative to more costly IDPs (inherently dissipative polymers) for providing static dissipation. They have carefully controlled conductive additive levels manufactured with precision compounding techniques, meaning they can be electrically controlled to give the proper resistivity value for the application.
