Inventors Claim New Way to Make Conductive Plastics

from Plastics News

A group of U.S. inventors might have found a way to make plastics conductive to electricity and heat without going through a laborious compounding process of mixing additives and resins. The inventors have patented a method of attaching a polymer chain to a nano-scale metal particle and graphene, and that this composition can exhibit useful electrical, thermal and even magnetic properties. Their research avoided the conventional compounding of conductive additives with a polymer in an extruder, where the mixing action creates high temperatures and pressures that can affect other polymer properties such as strength. more
