Antistatic Products

Antistatic thermoplastics for battery case, injection molding pellets and FDM filament.

Anti-static material prevents the buildup of static electricity

Static electricity builds up when there is sliding, rubbing, or separating of a materials. Under the right conditions, this induced charge can reach very high up to 40 KV. When this happens to an insulating material, like plastic, the charge tends to remain in the localized area of contact. This electrostatic voltage may then discharge via an arc or spark when the plastic material meets a body at a sufficiently different potential, such as a person or microcircuit.

Impact of Electrostatic Discharge

If Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) occurs to a person, the results may range anywhere from a mild to a painful shock or can even in loss of life. Some micro-electronic parts can be destroyed or damaged by ESD as low as 20 volts. The consequences of discharge through an electrical component sensitive to ESD can range from erroneous readings to permanent damage resulting in excessive equipment downtime and costly repair or total part replacement.

Antistatic ESD materials are plastics and coatings designed to reduce buildup of charge. These products come in surface and volumetric varieties. Bralco's antistatic material has a surface resistivity in the range of 1010 to 1011 ohm square.

Battery Casing

We produce fully customizable battery casings using ABS with antistatic additive. These protect vulnerable electronics components in electric vehicles from ESD.

Pellets and Filament

Our material is available in ABS pellets for injection molding or 1.75mm ABS filament for FDM printing.
