How Carbon Enhances Your ESD Material List

ESD material list
A comprehensive ESD material list includes materials from all four categories: insulative, anti-static, dissipative, and conductive. Conductive materials have a low electrical resistance, allowing electrons to flow easily across the surface of or through these materials, providing a path for charge to bleed off. The charges go to ground or to another conductive object that the material contacts. Since most plastics are insulators, the most common way to achieve conductive plastics is to add carbon to the material.

Conductive Carbon Plastics for Your ESD Material List

Carbon additives come in different forms with unique benefits and disadvantages. Pros of each carbon conductive plastic include:

The drawbacks of these carbon plastics include:
