Electrical Conductivity

Electrostatic charge buildup can happen in any system in which two non-conductive materials move across and come into contact with 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 hospital flooring and sheeting; conveyor and power transmission belts; printing rolls; hoses for mining and petroleum applications; and cable screening have specifications regarding electrical conductivity to address the need for dissipation of electrical charges.

Our VULCAN® XC family of conductive carbon black products can deliver the required level of conductivity and static dissipation, and is now available in all areas of the globe to meet growing demand for conductive solutions in rubber applications.

We also offer conductive solutions for plastic and battery applications and for coating applications, as well as our innovative line of carbon nanostructures for a variety of applications including rubber applications such as FKM fuel hoses.
