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.
