Active Carbon nanotube polymer masterbatches dispersed at concentration levels of 15% by weight. The masterbatches are in pellet form and loaded with multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). They are suitable for twin screw extrusion letdown applications, and available in Polyamide (PA6), Polycarbonate (PC) and Polypropylene (PP) matrices.
Due to high polymer dispersion, it is easy-to-handle, clean and safe for workers during production.
Compared to high load levels of carbon black and carbon fiber to achieve conductive properties, has higher strength and impact resistance.
Has an extremely high aspect ratio, which gives conductive properties at very low loadings (typically, 2-5 wt% active MWCNT levels).
Leads to precise and uniform surface resistivity, which eliminates residual voltage (hot spots) found with a carbon fiber filled compound.
Material structures enable thin wall molds to fill at lower temperatures, elimination of isotropic effects and a wide processing latitude.
Lower specific gravity than other conductive carbon materials means MWCNT compounds are a weight saving alternative to higher density materials.

Interfacial introduces its novel and proprietary Ultibatch™6000 Series Highly Filled Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Polymer Masterbatches. Based on its patented liquid dispersion technology, these conductive and statically dissipative plastic composites help to deliver superior electro-static discharge (ESD) protection in end-use applications. Compounds let down from Interfacial’s carbon nanotube masterbatches require less CNT filler to achieve required ESD properties when compared to carbon black and carbon fiber fillers. These lower CNT fill levels help to retain more of the base polymer’s properties while at the same time reducing cost compared to the use of carbon black and carbon fiber fillers.
