plastic electric conductors for the medical, car manufacturing and military sectors
These plastics help to prevent interferences in electronic equipment, reduce manufacturing costs and create 60% lighter pieces, as well as being respectful to the environment.
Aimplas presented the projects in Brussels, the purpose of which is to improve the electrical and physical properties of plastics using carbon nanotubes and other conductive additives.
The development of these thermoplastic components, apart from avoiding phenomena such as electrostatic discharges and electromagnetic shielding, has been shown to lead to functional improvements in the applications with which it is integrated, as well as offering significant energy and manufacturing cost savings with respect to existing options.
This new plastic composite may have numerous uses in sectors such as the car manufacturing industry, medicine, the military, electrics and electronics.
