Cri-plastMP™ PFA Electrically Conductive Compounds 

Cri-plastMP™ PFA Electrically Conductive Compounds are formulated to meet your static dissipative/conductive, ATEX requirements in multiple applications. Specific grades can be processed by injection, extrusion, transfer molding, and compression molding.

Special Features

  • Improved electrical conductivity
  • Capable of high MIT Flex performance
  • Retains electrical conductivity even at 150% elongation
  • Non-marking/sloughing due to lower filler loading
  • Retains conductivity after regrind
  • Drying not required

Electrical properties

Cri-plastMP™ PFA Electrically Conductive Compounds are designed for real application use, not just datasheet properties. Do your electrically conductive products have an elongation specification? Do the raw materials used retain their conductivity at these elongation values … probably not. Cri-plastMP™ compounds retain their conductivity even at 150% elongation. Conventional carbon filled products do not.
