BFGoodrich Performance Materials has developed a new line of inherently dissipative polymer (IDP) alloys that is two orders of magnitude lower in surface resistivity than existing electro-static discharge (ESD) control technologies.

The new Stat-Rite polymer alloys produce rapid, consistent and predictable static decay times as a result of a surface resistivity level that remains intact from the polymerization stage through compounding and processing, whether thermoformed, injection molded or extruded.

“We’ve done something that no one else in the industry has been able to do,” says Neil Hardwick, marketing manager, BF Goodrich Static Control Polymers. “By concentrating on the earliest stage in the production process – polymerization – and increasing the electrons available to carry a charge, we’ve created a new generation of inherently static dissipative polymers that will give test and design engineers new confidence in ESD control.
