Advanced conductive carbon solutions for high performance applications.
ATHLOS™ CNS are unique best-in-class conductive additives with the following main features:
ATHLOS™ CNS deliver an exceptional combination of conductivity, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and mechanical strength for applications that require high-performance.
ATHLOS™ CNS deliver EMI shielding capabilities at low loadings enabling a transition away from traditional metal solutions.
ATHLOS™ CNS offer superior levels of conductivity provided by a carbon-based additive, optimizing performance while driving reductions in cost and weight.
The low loadings of ATHLOS™ CNS enable designers to develop smaller, thinner and lighter electronics with improved strength and conductivity.
ATHLOS™ CNS enable plastics to deliver optimal conductive and EMI shielding performance in next generation products. ATHLOS CNS facilitates several key performance features including:
ATHLOS™ SR1200 CNS can significantly enhance the electrical conductivity of silicone elastomers at low loading levels. The electrical percolation thresholds of ATHLOS SR1200 CNS are between 0.1% and 0.25% by weight in cured high-temperature vulcanized (HTV) and liquid-silicone-rubber (LSR) silicone elastomers.Download Brochure
ATHLOS™ CNS enable an increase in compound conductivity with minimum impact on viscosity and broader formulation flexibility in conductive rubber compounds, for example in the inner liner for FKM automotive fuel hoses.Download Brochure
ATHLOS™ CNS feature crosslinked, branched structure that enables CNS to impart key performance features such as high electrical conductivity with minimum impact on processability, low electrical percolation threshold, best-in-class EMI shielding performance, synergies with other formulation additives, reinforcement and lightweighting.
