Conductive Polymer Protects Lighting Units in Electrostatic-Discharge and Explosion-Proof Areas

March 18, 2019 Alix Paultre

Heraeus Epurio and Plast Composite Consulting have jointly developed an antistatic coating that protects lighting units in electrostatic discharge (ESD) and explosion-proof areas. Combining conductivity with transparent surface sealing for lighting, the coating contains Clevios, a conductive polymer additive suitable for various plastics such as PC, ABS, PMMA, and SAN.

The additive gives the coated material its dissipative properties so that no static charges can arise that could, in the worst case, cause sparks and thus an explosion hazard. Surfaces coated with Clevios become antistatic, static dissipative, or conductive, with precisely adjustable coating resistances.
