WINONA, MN, USA — RTP Company announces the introduction of PermaStat PLUS™ with improved electrical properties compared to the company's successful line of PermaStat® permanently anti-static compounds. PermaStat PLUS™ compounds are ideal for applications with strict conductive requirements, such as those requiring certification to ATEX Directive (94/9/EC). "The further development of PermaStat PLUS™ is part of RTP Company's continuing effort to expand our technology and offer customers new options to meet and exceed strict performance guidelines, such as those established by ATEX (94/9/EC)," said Paul Killian, RTP Company Market Manager. PermaStat PLUS™ has a consistent surface resistance of 107 to 108 ohms and has a static decay of less than 0.5 seconds. This static dissipative performance makes Permastat PLUS™ ideal for ATEX applications that need materials with surface resistance of <109 ohms.="" in="" addition,="" to="" be="" atex="" compliant,="" plastic="" parts="" in="" equipment="" and="" protective="" systems="" must="" meet="" uv="" stability,="" temperature="" resistance,="" impact="" properties,="" chemical="" resistance,="" and="" flammability="" performance="" criteria.="" these="" criteria="" are="" outlined="" by="" the="" iec="" 60079="" standard.="" rtp="" company,="" headquartered="" in="" winona,="" minnesota,="" is="" a="" global="" leader="" in="" specialty="" compounding.="" the="" company="" has="" eight="" manufacturing="" plants="" on="" three="" continents,="" plus="" sales="" representatives="" throughout="" north="" america,="" europe,="" and="" asia/pacific.="" rtp="" company's="" engineers="" develop="" customized="" thermoplastic="" compounds="" in="" over="" 60="" different="" engineering="" resin="" systems="" for="" applications="" requiring="" color,="" conductivity,="" flame="" retardancy,="" high="" temperature,="" structural,="" and="" wear="" resistant="" properties.="" for="" more="" information,="" contact="" rtp="" company="" at="" 507-454-6900="" or="" 800-433-4787,="" or="" e-mail="" rtp@rtpcompany.com.="" ohms.="" in="" addition,="" to="" be="" atex="" compliant,="" plastic="" parts="" in="" equipment="" and="" protective="" systems="" must="" meet="" uv="" stability,="" temperature="" resistance,="" impact="" properties,="" chemical="" resistance,="" and="" flammability="" performance="" criteria.="" these="" criteria="" are="" outlined="" by="" the="" iec="" 60079="" standard.="" rtp="" company,="" headquartered="" in="" winona,="" minnesota,="" is="" a="" global="" leader="" in="" specialty="" compounding.="" the="" company="" has="" eight="" manufacturing="" plants="" on="" three="" continents,="" plus="" sales="" representatives="" throughout="" north="" america,="" europe,="" and="" asia/pacific.="" rtp="" company's="" engineers="" develop="" customized="" thermoplastic="" compounds="" in="" over="" 60="" different="" engineering="" resin="" systems="" for="" applications="" requiring="" color,="" conductivity,="" flame="" retardancy,="" high="" temperature,="" structural,="" and="" wear="" resistant="" properties.="" for="" more="" information,="" contact="" rtp="" company="" at="" 507-454-6900="" or="" 800-433-4787,="" or="" e-mail="" rtp@rtpcompany.com.="">
