Static Control ABS

Static Dissipative ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a non-carbon-filled anti-static material which has high impact strength, good tensile and flexural strength, and is easily machined. By adding special conductive materials to the resin, the conductivity of ABS is increased to control static electricity formation or conduction. These additives may be in the form of non-carbon alloys, carbon powder, or carbon fibers.  Some properties of the original ABS material are modified by the addition of fillers, but chemical resistance, strength, and manufacturability remains generally the same.

Available in natural or black, it can be easily thermoformed in thinner gauges and is bondable with WELD-ON® 1707.

Features:

 

  • Excellent Antistatic Effect -  Due to a good antistatic property, pollutants, dust, and mites should not be found on products.
  • Rapid Anti-static Effect - The antistatic effect begins immediately after molding and is maintained for a long period.
  • Stability of Physical Properties - The uses of all grades are wide and the changes in physical properties are small.
  • Excellent Secondary Processability - The secondary process can be used on both antistatic grades and general ABS grades.
  • Uniform Quality - Qualities such as physical properties and color are controlled by on-line automatic processes.

 

Brand Names

  • Absylux® SD-A (Static-dissipative Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) Non-carbon-filled anti-static material that has high impact strength, good tensile and flexural strength, and is easily machined. Available in natural or black, it can be easily thermoformed in thinner gauges and is bondable with WELD-ON® 1707.
  • Absylux® CN-F (Conductive Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) Non-sloughing, carbon fiber filled material with high strength and stiffness, easily machined.
  • Absylux® CN-P (Conductive Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) Carbon-powder-filled, conductive material with high strength and stiffness, and relatively high impact strength. This material is easily machined and fabricated into close tolerance finished parts.
  • Crystat® (Anti-static Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) Semitransparent, inherently anti-static material available in roll stock and thin gauge sheet. Its strength and clarity make it excellent for thermoforming.
