Conductive & Electrostatic Discharge

Our carbon black products deliver performance to increase conductivity and protect against electrical damage.

All carbon blacks are conductive; however, we have designed a range of products to allow customers to achieve optimal performance for their specific application. We offer a range of specialty carbon blacks and conductive compounds and concentrates that provide conductive or electrostatic dissipative (ESD) performance in plastics. 

Conductive plastics are used to protect against premature failure or damage due to electrostatic discharge in a variety of applications such as automotive fuel systems, electronic and electrical packaging and equipment, and other plastics applications. We offer one of the broadest portfolios of carbon black products that deliver a range of performance and conductivity attributes to meet our customers’ diverse and unique requirements.
