ESD Applications

Plastics are generally electrically insulating. Antistatic plastic components are used to avoid static charging and protect against electrostatic discharge (ESD). We offer CABELEC® conductive compounds and concentrates. These have the dissipative properties to reduce the risk of electrical charging.

ESD Applications

Antistatic and static dissipative plastics offer many advantages over other materials because they are lighter, offer weather resistance, and provide good protection against thermomechanical stress.


The products of CABELEC® guarantee quality, reliability, and high performance. These compounds and concentrates offer maximum performance in electrostatic dissipative and conductive plastics but also perform excellently in electronics processing, industrial packaging, cars, and other products.

Resistance is measured in Ohms (Ω). The conductivity regime (range) is as follows:

  • Neat Polymer (1012 Ω / 10/> Ω)
  • Anti-Static (1010 Ω / 1012 Ω)
  • Dissipative (106 Ω / 1010 Ω)
  • Conductive (106 Ω / 101 Ω)
Benefits of using CABELEC® compounds
  • Lightweight
  • Recyclable
  • Easy to handle and process
Benefits of using CABELEC® concentrates
  • Flexibility in designing conductive parts to the required performance level.
  • One single concentrate for different polymers, process types, and applications.
  • Multiple lengths of concentrate are possible, depending on the desired level of conductivity.
  • Potential savings in total raw material costs.
Processing CABELEC® Concentrates
CABELEC® conductive concentrates can be processed with conventional extrusion and injection molding machines, usually under conditions with low shear. For optimal quality, the actual processing temperatures should be adjusted to the nature of the equipment and the end product.
Processing CABELEC® Compounds
CABELEC® compounds can be used directly on conventional plastic processing machines without dilution.


Our perception of the world around us is predominantly inspired by colour. Today, we are using more and more plastic materials in an increasing number of products and in as many different colors. In addition to our broad range of products, we develop masterbatches to meet the precise requirements of our clients application. 


Acting on fast changes in customer needs, manufacturers want to be able to anticipate when it comes to the raw materials they purchase and use for design, colour and additional properties in this dynamic industry.
