Conductive hybrid plastic

  • 08-Jul-2011 02:48 EDT


ElectriPlast-CF66 electrically conductive, resin-based material from Integral Technologies offers a 50 to 60% weight reduction over traditional metals and was designed to meet demanding electromagnetic shielding, thermal requirements, and mechanical properties for automotive, marine, and aerospace applications. Composed of polyamide 66 and nickel-plated carbon fiber, EP-CF66 reduces traditional component weight and is lighter than other conductive plastics but provides the same shielding and is structurally stronger. EP-CF66 is an effective solution for electromagnetic shielding in engine compartments as well as in other harsh environments. Improved mechanical strength allows it to withstand high temperatures, the corrosiveness of fluids, and high-frequency vibrations.
