Conductive Plastazote

Expertise in the fabrication of all Plastazote foams including conductive grades

Plastazote provides an entirely ESD safe method for protecting items in storage or in transit. Predominantly used within protective cases or containers, Plastazote foam inserts offer engineered levels of protection and can be designed to suit any specific needs or requirements.


Boasting a wide range of beneficial features, Plastazote foam inserts deliver market leading cushioning performance whilst protecting items from impact, shock, vibration and static charge.

Plastazote® is a closed cell, cross-linked polyethylene foam manufactured by Zotefoams unique production process.A wide range of polymer combinations is available to give increased stiffness, improved temperature resistance and conductive performance.

Plastazote is the market leading foam insert material

Plastazote is widely regarded as the leading foam for use in high performance, technical applications and at GWP we can offer unrivalled expertise in its precision fabrication.


The conductive grades which form part of the Azote product range from Zotefoams PLC are formulated with a special carbon addition to provide conductive properties alongside its’ exceptional cushioning performance.


This makes conductive Plastazote the material of choice if protection from shock, vibration and impact is required alongside ESD performance and high-quality product presentation.


As a result, Plastazote is widely used within tough, rigid outer containers such as the SSI Schaefer ranges we hold in stock, as well as the protective cases manufactured by our GWP Protective division in Salisbury.

Advantages of using conductive Plastazote foams

  • Controlled release of static charge
  • Market leading cushioning performance
  • Superb protection against shock, vibration and impact
  • Calculated levels of performance if required
  • Permanent protection, ideal for multi-trip and storage applications
  • Die cut, CNC routing and water jet profiling available
  • Dedicated foam design team
  • Ideal for use with rigid containers, SSI Schaefer ranges and protective cases

How does conductive Plastazote work?

Conductive Plastazote is manufactured using a special carbon compound to provide conductive properties alongside its renowned cushioning performance.


As the carbon is introduced by pre-compounding (not post impregnation as with some types of conductive foam), it ensures it is fully encapsulated in the polymer. As a result, the foams are non-sloughing and provide an excellent level of performance.


The two main grades of conductive Plastazote, LD30SD and LD40SD, are static dissipative nitrogen blown cross-linked polyethylene foams which provide not only conductive performance but also advanced levels of cushioning protection to fragile components.
