Polymer Dynamix introduced a family of permanently anti-static thermoplastic compounds.
DynaStat compounds are designed to give surface and volume resistivity in the critical range for sensitive electronic equipment. The materials are suitable for extrusion and injection molding and are also available in rod and sheet form for machining. DynaStat compounds are offered in a variety of resins, including nylon, acetal, ABS, polycarbonate, polypropylene and polyethylene.
The South Plainfield, N.J., firm said its new lineup relies on intrinsically dissipative polymer and Pebax thermoplastic elastomer made by Arkema Corp.
The compounds are ultraviolet stable and permanent with no migration of additives that can interfere with performance. The products maintain static control at humidity as low as 15 percent.
