Extrusion: The need for ESD (electrostatic dissapative) protective materials often requires materials to be processed by extrusion, sheet, or blow molding. Stat-Rite® and Carbo-Rite® materials are typically formulated in compound or extruded sheet form for processing into the desired shapes for providing cost effective solutions to your ESD protection needs. The viscosity of our compounds can be adjusted to meet the requirements for most of the plastic extrusion processes, please discuss with your Lubrizol Conductive Polymers sales or technical service specialist.
Injection Molding: Injection molding is often the most efficient process for producing the ESD protection components you need to control the problems caused by ESD damage. Most Stat-Rite and Carbo-Rite materials are available as injection molding compounds. Stat-Rite Inherently Static Dissipative Masterbatchs allow you to produce a cost effective material utilizing your existing tooling and materials.
Thermoforming: The thermoforming process consists of changing the form of a thermoplastic sheet through heat and pressure. Certain thermoforming conditions must be met in order to maintain the required two phase polymer network that provides the ESD path in Stat-Rite® polymer alloys. Therefore, the selections of thermoforming conditions are critical for maximizing the electrical and mechanical results.
