reduced emission carbon black compounds in accordance with binding EU regulation 1272/2013

Electrically conductive products are required to meet high legal standards for the protection of customers. PAH concentrations in materials must never exceed maximum levels wherever there is the possibility of skin contact, even for short periods. The GRAFE Group offers reduced-PAH conductive compounds in accordance with the standards required by the GS seal for tested quality in the Categories 1 – 2, thus complying with the statutory EU directive which will go into effect from December 2015. This directive sets the maximum PAH concentration at 1mg/kg.

Easy-flowing carbon black compounds

Carbon black loading changes the flow properties of polymers significantly. Depending on the application and the base material, a carbon black filling of up to 30 percent is customary for electrically conductive polymer compounds. The GRAFE Polymer Technik, specialists in the modification of thermoplastics to electrically conductive carbon black composites, is presenting a variety of options to optimize the flow properties of carbon black compounds at the FAKUMA.

„Next on my wish list is a …“

3D printing has ushered in a revolution where amateur artists and prototype manufacturers alike can make their wishes come true. 3D printing allows the creation of diverse 3-dimensional objects within the confines of one’s own living room. Entrepreneurs in particular profit from the flexibility of 3D printing as it facilitates the production of prototypes and work pieces. PLA filaments are widely used today in 3D printing. The GRAFE Group offers its customers suitable and individual formulations for 3D printing.

Compounds with thermal conductivity

Polymer materials can be equipped with very special functions by adding fillers and additives. For example, it is possible to modify the electrical or thermal conductivity of plastics in this manner. Thermally conductive polymer materials, in particular, have been growing in popularity through new applications, for example in the automotive industry.
