Say goodbye to electric shock with adjustable MARFRAN® E CD TPE compounds from Nordmann partner FFE.
Too wired? MARFRAN® E CD TPE compounds from FFE can help.
Electrostatic charge can have unpleasant consequences, for instance when buying clothes. While trying on garments, the human body becomes electrically charged by way of friction generated through textiles. Afterwards one quick touch is enough to trigger a small electric shock.
Plastics also build up electrostatic charge easily. To combat this problem, FRANCESCO FRANCESCHETTI ELASTOMERI SrL. (FFE) launched an innovative solution onto the market several years ago: MARFRAN® E CD TPE compounds, which can be furnished with either antistatic effects or electrical conductivity through the use of additives. These additives can be grouped into three categories:
- Intrinsically conductive polymers (ICP)
- Ionic and/or hydrophilic additives
- Conductive fillers
FFE range includes:
- MARFRAN® E CDP: TPE-S compounds based
on SEBS, modified with specific intrinsically
conductive polymers. The electric conductivity of
these products are permanent, regardless of the
later operating conditions. Good physical and
mechanical properties are guaranteed by the
- MARFRAN® E CDT1: TPE-S compounds based on
SEBS with migrating antistatic additives. It
should be noted that the antistatic effects of
these compounds decrease over time and are not
- MARFRAN® E CDT2: TPE-S compounds based
on SEBS with a mineral filler and migrating
antistatic additives. The antistatic effects of
these products decrease over time as well and
are therefore not permanent.
