Nanocyl in the magazine Compounding World April 2016- Electrically conductive plastics

Extract: "Over the past few years the Nanocyl’s NC7000 product has penetrated large volume markets in thermoplastic commodities segments including automotive, electronic pacakging, and energy. Nanocyl’s MWCNT materials are typically replacing conventional carbon blacks. One reason for their adoption is that MWCNTs can add conductivity to plastics compounds at very low loadings. Moreover, MWCNTs allow new multifunctional materials to emerge. Industrial fan blades for cooling towers in ATEX environment have been produced by Nanocyl and VAMPTECH (Italian compounder specialized in flame retardant compounds) based on a PA6/MWCNTs formulation providing multifunctional properties. These blades are dissipative (108 Ω/sq) and meet UL94 V0 flammability...
