Yes, it is possible by using carbon-based conductive materials. These percolation-based materials enhance the electrical properties of the material, achieving resistivities lower than 10^5 ohms/cm.

Furthermore, unlike most colorable antistatics, this effect is permanent and instantaneous. Thus, the ESD effect is achieved after processing the material.

avanGRP 700 and avanGRP710 are a range of graphene-based products in masterbatch format that provide electrical conductivity for ESD and conductive products in a wide variety of thermoplastic materials (PP, PE, PS…).

Evolution of electrical conductivity as a function of the addition of avanGRP 700MB and avanGRP 710MB

avanGRP 700 MB

The material can be used either as a direct compound or as a masterbatch to be diluted. A percolation threshold should be between 25-30% depending on the dispersion and integration into the raw material.

avanGRP 710 MB

The material can be used in direct injection or with a prior extrusion process. The percolation threshold starts at an 18-20% addition of the masterbatch, and continues to increase conductivity up to a maximum dosage of 50%.
