STAT-KON™ compounds contain electrically conductive additives that provide surface resistivity from antistatic, through conductive, to electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding. Stat-Kon composites are rounded out by LNP's STAT-LOY™ and FARADEX™ compounds to provide a full range of electrically active materials.
Stat-Kon compounds offer cost-effective solutions when products must avoid static electricity buildup or discharge.
BROAD RANGE OF SURFACE RESISTIVITY Wide range of surface resistivity, from 100 to 1012 ohms/sq. (where non-treated base resins exhibit 1014-1018 ohms/sq.) Applications range from statically dissipative to electrically conductive.
CHOICE OF CONDUCTIVE ADDITIVES Can be formulated to meet specific needs with carbon fiber, stainless steel fiber, carbon powder, metal powder and flake, and migratory antistats. Depending on the electrically active filler or reinforcement, these compounds can suppress initial charges, minimize tribo charging from movement, insulate against leakage current, prevent electrostatic discharge to/from human contact, provide a grounding path for charge bleed-off.
FORMULATION BY APPLICATION Can be fine-tuned for surface resistivity, volume resistivity, static decay, and other engineering parameters.
BROAD RANGE OF ATTRIBUTES Broad range of mechanical, physical, and thermal properties depending on the base resin selected. The addition of other additives and reinforcements, including glass fiber, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and PTFE/silicone systems, further extend the properties. Many grades are also available as clean compound system (CCS) materials for applications requiring low levels of ionic contamination, particularly designed for the use in the disk drive industry.
DIMENSIONAL STABILITY Exhibit excellent isotropic shrinkage for dimensional stability and low warpage.
FLAME RETARDANCY Can be compounded for flame retardancy (FR), including non-halogenated FR compounds.
WIDE RANGE OF RESINS AND PROCESSING TYPES Available in most major engineering thermoplastics and in forms for extrusion, injection molding, thermoforming, blow molding, and rotational molding. Some series accept colors and aesthetic effects, and Stat-Kon can be formulated for cost-effectiveness.
