ElectriPlast Corp. has developed a line of electrically conductive composites based on polybutylene terephthalate and nickel-plated carbon fiber.
The Fort Washington, Pa., company claims the composite resists solvents, cuts component weight in half and withstands temperatures up to 215 degrees C.
“The material is flame resistant, can withstand high temperatures and corrosive environments and provides superior shielding while outperforming aluminum with a 50 to 60 percent reduction in weight,” claims ElectriPlast CEO Herbert Reedman in a news release.
The new hybrid extends ElectriPlast's conductive composites that are moldable into a wide range of shapes for applications such as electrical connectors, electronics enclosures, sensors, motors, telecommunications, circuit breakers, fuse boxes and mobile devices.
