Description

More info on conductive Zotefoams® / Plastazote®

Plastazote® is widely regarded as the leading foam for use in high performance, technical applications, with GWP being among the premier converters of this type of foam in the UK. This means your business can benefit from 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 wide range of protective cases available through GWP Protective.

How does anti-static Zotefoam® 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.

Key benefits of conductive Plastazote® / Zotefoams® at a glance

  • 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
  • Ideal for use with rigid containers, SSI Schaefer ranges and protective cases
  • Die cut, CNC routing and water jet profiling available
  • Dedicated foam design team

Free Quotes / Advice

No obligation quotes and genuinely impartial advice

GWP have been converting Plastazote® and other Zotefoams® materials for well over 20 years.

Whilst this has predominantly been in high performance protective cases (such as the custom foam inserts added to Peli, Storm, Explorer etc.), the crossover between expertise in foam conversion and ESD safe packaging has led to many projects using conductive Plastazote®.

Besides this level of expertise, your business can also benefit from working alongside GWP in a number of other ways. This includes free advice on material grades and options, a full design service, no obligation quotes and extensive support throughout all steps of any project you are working on.
