Electrical Conductivity

Electrostatic charge buildup can happen in any system in which two non-conductive materials move across and contact each other.

The discharge of this electrostatic build-up can lead to various hazards including flammable environments or failure of electronic equipment. To minimize these risks, many industrial rubber products, such as fuel hoses, conveyor belts, printing rollers, seals in sensitive electronic equipment and automotive belts have specifications regarding electrical conductivity to address the need for dissipation of electrical charges. Our BLACK PEARLS® 2000, VULCAN® XC-72, VULCAN P and STERLING® C conductive carbon black products can deliver the required level of conductivity and static dissipation.
