A full line of carbon-fiber compounds has been added to the Pre-Elec line from Premix Thermoplastics, Inc., Milton, Wis., a specialist in conductive and antistatic compounds. Premix now offers chopped and milled carbon fibers at levels up to 60% in nylons and PPS, and up to 40% in most other thermoplastics, such as PP, ABS, PC, acetal, and polysulfone. Compounds are black or can be colored if they have only 10% carbon fiber. Premix also compounds carbon nanotubes, which require as little as 3% loadings and can provide thermal as well as electrical conductivity.
